Open Quote I used to attend Burke High School and i graduated in 2006. I actually participated in doing a speech in front of the School Board about this school. Burke has changed my life like nothing else. I love the school, and all the teachers in it. Everyone actually cares about the students and wants them to do well and graduate on time, if not earlier. I graduated a whole year earlier. Burke is what made me go to college, because i realized that not all teachers are rude, inconsiderate, and careless. That is what i experienced in two other high schools which i attended. I would recomment this school to any student that wants to learn, and have fun, and actually have a support system in their high school! THANK YOU MRS. ALDERMAN!!!!!!!!!!! (former principle) 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.
