    this school is by far the best school. is always dirty and trash everywhere there is no supervision of the gates so anybody can go in and out at any time. and if anybody knows a parent from special education tell them to go to school and make sure your baby is ok the teacher of ed has no patience for little angels like them. first year here and very disappointed.

    Bursch is a wonderful place for children to be. My children have all maintained a great academic standing due to the teachers' commitment and dedication. Teachers at Bursch truly believe in challenging their students and it shows that they really care for them. I just wish there was more money in the school's budget to continue with the band program and sports teams.

    This school has come a long way since I attented. My son really likes his teacher and he is doing a great job. My only problem is that he is not being challenged and is bored with the work he gets.

    I am so pleased with this school. The entire staff is helpful and pleasant my daughter's teacher is extremely delightful and intelligent which makes me a happy parent. The prinicipal Mrs. Rossi actually listens to the parents.

    This is my son's first year at Bursch. I am very impressed with my son's 1st grade teacher. Bursch prepares the children for college as well as staying current on politics. I'm looking forward to his future years at Bursch.
