There have a wide variety of activities to do at East Burke. We have a lot of club like newspaper, drama, anchor, FTA (future teachers of America) and a ton more. We have sports also tennis, football, soccer, vollyball, crosscounty all the normal sports that most schools have. The teacher will help you when every you are confused. They will make accommodations to the needs of their students. All the teachers are very trust worthy. It's truly a great school (most of the time).
