Thanks to those who posted in support of our school! We have so many wonderful students and so many hard-working and amazing teachers and staff. To label our teachers as cruel is just cruel :(. This is my 10th year and I am proud to teach here. There are many challenges and areas where we are working to improve, but please... work to be part of the solution! Advocate for your needs respectfully and don't give up until they are addressed. If you have ideas for how we can improve, please contact us and communicate! I am very optimistic about the way this year has started and I hope you are too! Have a great year wherever you are! :)
I went here 10 years ago and judging from the reviews, this place hasn't changed. I spent my 6th grade year here and it was so bad I blocked most of it out. The teachers were unnecessarily cruel, the place was run and felt like a prison, and the other kids hates me because I could spell. But looking back, I don't blame the kids the way the teacher review below does. Burnet is an amalgamation of the neighborhood. If we want healthier, happier kids (which I'm guessing the teachers and administration DON'T, judging from their behavior), then we have to work hard on a community level to give them hope. Like the student below says, kids here have no freedom, no hope, no happiness. It's a horrible school. If you're a parent, your kid deserves better. And if you're a teacher like the one below, please go do something that doesn't affect kids' lives.
Burnet middle school cares more about the dress code than they do about the students grades and test scores.
burnet middle school the best school that i ever want to beacuse i have a lot of friends that i now for three years all ready so thas cool burnet is a good school i now it is .
straight up i think burnet is a good school yes but there are a lot and i mean a lot of changes in my school because there are a lot of gangs still going on with all of the things that has changed and as a student i can tell even though all that has change that is not makeing us students more interressted in school it is makeing us want to drop out or skip or somthing bad that we will regrete because we r like a jail cell we have no freedom what so ever in burnet ok so thats my point oh and 1 other thing what r the parents going to do to help us kids get more freedom cause with out freedom we have nothing to depend on or no one to depend on cause we cant go to no one cause we always get lextured
My daughter has been bullied and harassed by packs of boys yet the teachers do very little. This school is a joke i have never seen anything like this. She will not be attending another year there parents beware!!!!!
Burnet has the most dedicated employees and the best students and families.
I enjoy working with the people I work with. They are wonderful staff that are always willing to help me when I need it both with other teachers and students.
Ilove the teamwork, the staff truly cares for the students best interests. The teachers come early,stay late and give it there all. The administrative staff is the best you can find. Mr. Jewel rocks.
I love Burnet Middle School's diversity. I love the dedicated faculty and staff who work so hard to give our students a great education. I love the parents who set such high standards for their children academically and socially. Finally, I love the community support that comes in a variety of forms: giving us breakfast on Continuing Education days, tending our garden, providing volunteer support for extracurricular events. The Burnet community rocks! and rolls!
I love the people I work with including teachers, secretaries, police officer, hall monitor, parent support specialist, drop out prevention specialist, and all the parents that support the students.
The students from Burnet Middle School are really special. They come from many different backgrounds and walks of life, and they all come together to help each other, and our school, succeed. Go Sailors!!
Burnet middle School is a good school. Both my children have attended it and have thought it was fine. Every school has bad influences, and its up to your children to stay away from them. I never understood why other parents thought Burnet was so bad and would send their children to another school that was just as bad if not worse. Its all up to your children, there are drugs and gangs at every school, not just Burnet. In my opinion its a great school. :)
I will never send another one of my children there. They do not know how to do anything .
I belive this school would benefit from a change in leadership. Burnets current principal has been here far too long and has lost sight of what's really important--the kids. Time to move on.
I could not agree more with some of the comments I have just read concerning Burnet. I feel that the problem lay squarely at the feet of the BMS principal. I have found her to be unresponsive to our needs. I feel she lacks a decent rapport with her parents and staff.
The teachers at this school are wonderful and very helpful to my children. They do everything that they can to address my concerns and my children's needs. The dress code is needed. Apparently, many of the students' parents are more concerned whether their little 'darlings' are allowed to wear low-cut blouses or sagging prison-style pants than their education! Wisen up! Support the school, show up to volunteer, get your kids on track in your homes, and maybe your children will turn around. The average student at BMS nevber has a parent who gets involved. There are some who do, but they are way overshadowed by the uninvolved parents. Please help out, be supportive, and let's save these kids.
The quality of academic programs is average with music, art and sports all available. The level of parent involvement is where this school is suffering. There are a lot of children attending this school who have parents that could care less who their children spend time with, what they're doing with their time, where they're spending their time and, when they are or aren't where they're supposed to be.
I have been teaching in Burnet for two years now and find that the students lack desire and a willingness to acheive more than what society has steriotyped them to become. The faculty and staff work closly together however are constantly battling for support from the comunity and parents.
