  • (6 years ago)

    This school has some good people. The teachers care about students but the principals are tough on drugs. They act like their school is not going to have any drugs. Way backward! They need to get real!

  • (6 years ago)

    This school cares about students. The most student friendly principal counselors and teachers you will ever find! The school expects students to work hard but supports them in their efforts.

    I am a freshman at Burnet High School this year. Everybody had been very nice to me and the teachers are very helpful. I was scared to come to high school but now I know everything will be fine in my high school career. I am making good grades and love my teachers and my school. The teachers are hard but they help you when you ask for it. The principal always says 'Howdy' to me when he sees me. He makes me feel welcome and safe at school.

    Caring teachers and administrators.

    BHS is a very good school. The technology programs are very advanced. Academics are very good and teachers for the most part are great. On the other hand teachers tend to focus most of their attention on the students who need it the least. Creative arts are often passed over for athletics and no budget allowances seem to be made for programs such as choir.

    This is a great school. The teachers are great. They want to really teach the subject- no matter how long it takes. Ms. Ringstaff is awesome. Go Dogs-
