    I was a student now I am doing to Burnett middle school and my experience her was good and bad my math teacher loved to enterict with the class her name was mrs.comrie I love her she was so sweet and kind. Umm my other teacher was nice her name was mrs.diamond-rutt she loved to do fun thing with the kids um I would not rev amend this school because my brother he is going to 4 grade there and in 3 grade he found 1green spider four different times and the milk was expired and that happend twice and there kids loved fighting and that would fight and circe and when the lunch lady's go to help some would disrespect her and there was a lot of bullying there and myself got bullied and kids will throw sunflower seeds at you and dump milk on you and it was a horrible experience but most of the teachers were nice and funny but I would not recamind this school at all
