The entire staff is so good with the children. They know almost all of them by name. Classroom wise, the teachers make it easy for the children to comprehend the assignments at hand.

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.
