    I am a parent of a kindergartener who progrossed far and beyond at Burroughs since preK3. Each of her teachers and teacher's aides have been such great assests to her educational and moral progress. We would love to stay but found another great school like Burroughs near our home. I would say that because I was extremely involved with her in everything at her school (and home-schooled her thoroughly before she began HeadStart) she was well prepared for this school. Then topping it off with the teachers she had who really nurtured her strengths and encouraged her in her weaknesses I was just so pleased. Thanks Burroughs for 3 exciting years for my child and me.

    I just came up on this website and I wish I would have known about it sooner. I just love John Burroughs. My daughter has been the last 2 years in Pre K and K. She will go to First Grade in the Fall. My daughter is reading. She knows how to add and subtract and learned the foundation of multiplication in Kindergarten. She just loved her teacher and I could really tell that her teacher truly cared about her. Her class went on lots of field trips and I was surprised her class had a Smartboard in it and they used latops too. This school is good for my 5 year old so far. The cons are that the building is old and the upper grade level kids are not good at all. If I had an older student I would not recommend this school.

    My daughter went to this school 1-6th grade and now is a freshman in college. My son is in six grade now and attened this school since pre-k. Excellent principal and staff. My daughter was well equipped for high school and college getting her start here. My son is on A honor roll.

    I'm pleased with the academics overall. Almost all of the kids appear to be very intellectual. School must provide better extracurricular activities. Parent involvement has gotten much better.

    John Burroughs has met all of the academic targets in testing for the past few years. The school is one of the better schools in this section of DC. My children find it to be a happy environment to learn in and both were on honor roll last year. This makes me happy. John Burroughs can be even better if more parents would avail themselves to the many opportunities that the school presents for them to get involved. The parent center remains under used and PTA meetings are scarcely attended. I see too few parents at the meetings and other events and usually these are the same faces.

    John Burroughs has the potential to be an excellent school. It's the adminstration namely the principal Linda Little who runs the school autononomously and shuns away parental involvement. She is ineffective. The school will be a better place for our children -- minus Ms. Little

    John Burroughs is an excellent school. My little girl has been there since kindergarten. She is now a 6th grader. I would recommend this school highly both academically as well as safety.
