Open Quote New Prinicpal in the past two years is energetic, involved, interested and strongly motivating our students to perform. The teachers are strong, compassionate and are willing to work with you and your child to make sure they get the best education possible. I am very impressed thus far with Burr including their community involvement, standard of care and educational goals for my child.

I highly recommend Burr Elementary to anyone thinking about bringing their pre-K, Kindergarden and first grader there. I was surprised myself in bringing my kindergardener there as I thought there would be issues with gangs, language barriers, and security. I was incredibly wrong as this area has changed incredibly since I lived there 10 years ago as a student. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
