Burke is a place where students develop a positive sense of self and others. Students are empowered to collaborate, own their learning, and persevere in the face of both academic and social adversity. They are supported and inspired by compassionate, committed adults who model the habits of collaboration, perseverance, and reflection to provide a rigorous and critical curriculum while continuously working to improve our practice.
At Burke, we acknowledge that our school’s, students’ and community’s success depends on a thoughtful partnership between each--a partnership that centers around social justice values and the best interest of our students as the driving force for our work together.
Our mission is to create a positive, supportive community of learners who work together to become our best selves. We endeavor to cultivate a critical understanding of our community, and our world, so that we develop the necessary knowledge and skill to impact our future. We value the uniqueness of each member of the Burke community and develop leaders who are ready to enter and transform our world.
Bringing this mission and vision to life does not happen in isolation. We need you, your engagement and your input. We work, everyday, to confront many challenges that our world throws at us. It is only through your partnership and support that we can continue to build the school community that our students deserve.
