This school is great. I've been going here since preschool. And this year in in 8th grade. I love the art program and the PE. Besides PE we don't have any sport teams:( The teachers are great and we truly miss Ms. Parker. The student council is also a great for our school. I think they do so much for us. I think BTS needs more dances though cause they have the best dances ever and all if my friends think that too. Wee also think burke is in the middle of all the schools. Come here!!!!
