I had an appointment at Burruss for a tour for my son for next year. We are zoned for Lockheed but found out about the choice program and want to take advantage of a better school choice. I must say the tour was outstanding the principal is so involved and shows so much love and care for the children I was completely sold to make Burruss my first choice for the choice program. I left feeling very comfortable with my son starting kindergarten next year. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a great elementary school for your child to feel comfortable. Mrs.King is very hands on!!! Excellent school...
