    Overall Experience: While I have grown as an individual in this school, all of lessons I've learned are from witnessing things I don't want to be rather than what I would want to be.

    Teachers: While some teachers are outstanding and can turn you from a 'C' student to a 'B+' or even an 'A' others barely care if you pass or fail the class. They give homewo k but nothing is challenging, they do the bare minimum to make sure they meet the New York State Stamdards.

    Overall Experience: Burke is an okay place to go to school. The teachers are good, not great. The best advise I can give a future student is know how to learn on your own.
