Placing Youth on the Path to Success
At Burlington High School, we are strong believers in the ability of our youth to succeed. Our Student Support Team is here to help our youth reach their goals and fulfill their highest potential. We are proud of all our children, and love watching them grow into bright-minded and confident individuals.
We are dedicated to identifying and supporting students with social and emotional, academic or behavioral challenges. We connect our students to the appropriate interventions and support.
Burlington High School is an innovative, equitable, and collaborative community of learners inspiring and shaping a dynamic and sustainable future for Burlington. We build on the diverse cultures, experiences, and interests of our students and community to support student-centered learning and foster intellectual growth. We partner with families and the community at large to help our students develop the skills to become independent, self-directed, and lifelong learners who contribute responsibly to our world.
