Dear Burnett Community,

      We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit The Burnett Middle School website. On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome you to the home of the mighty bears.  As an International Baccalaureate Middle Year Program School, we are committed to producing students who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.

      Students at Burnett are expected to take pride in their academics, be ready to problem solve, be able to communicate their ideas and ultimately, do their best each and every day. Due to our smaller school size, Burnett students have an excellent opportunity to take advantage of our technology and arts (including our award winning speech and debate) programs as well as become involved in school activities and have a meaningful middle school experience.

      I encourage you to become involved with your child’s studies and contact the school if you have any questions throughout the year. Only with a strong parent partnership can we assist your student in obtaining a high quality education and ensure your student has the best educational experience possible.

Go Bears!!!

Kristin Luz, Principal
