    there is so much scandal and fear in these teachers of this current principal that is saddens me. the enviroment is not favorable and parent involvement is zero. compare the number of students that did not return for 2013-2014.

    Burrville has made a dramatic change in the last two years under Principal Roper. I have three children and I have been a Burrville parent for over 6 years. I can honestly say that Principal Roper treats every student like they are her own children. Everyone calls the children "Scholars" and they talk about going to college. My 3rd grader talks about his data and reaching his academic goals. Its great.

    I love this school. The principal Ms.Roper really cares about about the students and parents. She's very helpful friendly and caring.She has went out of her way to help my family tremendously. She has a open door policy regardless of what the situation.

    The school is awful so is the new principal. Last school year half of the staff starting quitting in the middle of the school year. This school year hardly none of the old teachers returned. Also if you have any concerns and try to talk to the principal Ms. Roper she will give you the run around she'll tell you to go speak to her side kick Ms. Raynor and she'll do the same. The only way to get results is to go over both of their heads and call the school board. Please stay away from this schol.

    Although the the school is one of the best schools in DC they have (DCPS) removed the historical legacy successive principals last week.....with no communication with parents! Amazing... The school is great now.

    My child has attended Burrville for the first time this past school year (PS). I must say he's learned a lot in a year. Keep up the great work.

    The Montessori program is very well organized and my child is continuing to blossom under the guidance of her teacher Ms. Underwood. This unique style of educating children has proven to be successful for my 4 year old kindergartner who has been reading since she was 3 years old.

    Burrville is the best school for a child to attend as they begin their educational journey. The teachers are dedicated and the children are enthusiatic about learning.

    Burrville is a good school I love sending my kids there they really care about the kids and they operate as a family.

    I am a 26 year old former Burrville student and my daughter is currently attending Burrville. My son will be joining her in the fall. I have nothing but praise for Burrville School and my daughter's teacher. She has shown remarkable progress in the one year that she's been enrolled there and is advanced for beyond most 3 year olds that I know. My child is in the Montessori program and takes Spanish and computer classes. Burrville has a solid reputation as an excellent school and has even been selected to introduce the International Baccalaureate curriculum they have also been selected to participate in the Chinese teacher exchange program. Participation in such prestigious programs isn't given to just any 2nd rate school.

    Burville is a great school. It is very family orienated. The teacher really care and take pleasure in helping children to achieve success.

    I use to attend Burrville Elementary school when the principal was Mr Henry. It was an excellent school with great teachers.I am now 26 years old and my daughter now attends Burville. Although they have some good teachers they don't have available all the resources in place to ensure everyone's success. A school should have tutoring extra curricular activities for all grades foreign language teachers etc. Instead they just have the basic curriculum and nothing in play to expand and motivate children throughout the whole learning process. I must say i'm very disappointed in Burrville these days. It would be nice if the money that's allotted for each child be spent on them to ensure a productive and promising future for the children or at least a foundation.

    Burrville is an excellent school that truly cares about the 'whole' studentand their families. All of my children and their children have come through Burrville and gone on to do great things. It's just big enough to offer children the best in education and just small enough where 'everybody knows your name'.
