Map of Burke Elementary School address.

The first year my kids went to the school it was okay. Principal Mrs. Lopez was great, the teaching was okay. There was no doubt in sending the kids back to Burke. The second year changed it all when they replaced the principal. She puts out a bossy vibe rather than a happy learning environment. The staff is not welcoming as you drop your child off, people do not smile, and in general they all seem unhappy. The way learning and encouragement is handled is outrageous. To keep attendance they offer ice cream, and make kids who are sick and have to miss the "example" Academically one of my kids actually declined while the other; one grade up learned plentiful. Average school that can be much better with encouragement on teachers from principal, and more involved parenting. Teachers do the best they can with what they have here.

Ms. Knapp and Ms. Freeman are always there first thing in the morning. They greet everyone with a smile. My child loves this school especially his third grade teacher, Ms. Lopez. He had difficulties this past year with his behavior. I was always able to meet with administration and his teacher to resolve the issue. I love that they always have an open door policy and have never treated him differently.

Burke is a wonderful school! All four of my children have gone there - I currently have three there now. The quality of teachers and staff is top notch! Each and every person truly cares for the students and you can tell .They have a excellent gifted and talented teacher as well as art , P.E. , music and computers. The counselors are also very caring and easy to talk to .The principal, Ms. lopez and the vice principal Ms. Harris are both wonderful administrators and you can tell how much they love their job and their students!The parent involvement is in need of some improvement but that will come in time. I would recommend Burke Elementary to anyone.

I've never visited a better school. The caring staff does not end with the principal and teachers; it extends all the way to every employee. The children sense this and respond. Every child I've seen all say they love being at W.Z. 'Doc' Burke Elementary School
