Burges High School 4

I've been a student at this school for two years and I'm currently entering my junior year. The school itself is in pretty bad condition and huge budget cuts by the El Paso Independent School District have really taken their toll. However, all of the teachers I've had at this school really care about the students and try to make the best out of what meek resources they have. The Journalism program is outstanding. The real problem is the students. Many of them are good, rule-abiding students, however the troublemakers are the students that commute from Ju rez and refuse to speak English. They are normally very disruptive and are best to be avoided. Other than that the school is superb and I'll be proud to call myself a Burges alumnus, come 2013.

Burges High School 2

We are a military family that moved to the area at the beginning of the 10-11 school year. 2 of my sons attend this school. Although the school's staff are great, a lot of the students have a problem with kids that do not speak Spanish and are not of Hispanic origin. There has been name calling and being told they "do not belong there". There is also a lack of adult supervision (there is no supervision) in the student parking lot after school during after school activities. Kids are aloud to run ramped and bully other kids during this time.
