In some ways the Burlington Schools are typical of those found in any Kansas community with a population of 3,500. In other ways, however, dramatic differences exist. A close examination of the schools will reveal excellent educational facilities, a variety of educational programs and services, and a highly trained professional staff. All these provide a strong indication of the community support, belief in education, and educational leadership which contribute to the uniqueness of the school system.
Approximately 1,000 students in grades kindergarten through 12 are served by a staff of 100 teachers, counselors, librarians and administrators, plus 25 special services staff members who provide special instruction for both the disabled and the gifted students. Full-time counselors and librarians serve each attendance center.
School buildings of the district are well maintained and equipped. The high school and the middle school were opened in 1979 at a cost of approximately $6.5 million. During the 1989-1990 school year, a $2.3 million, 44,077 square foot addition, which included a gymnasium, was made to the elementary building. An all-weather synthetic track was constructed and a covered athletic stadium was completed in 1988. The middle school was remodeled and enlarged in 1985 and again in 1989 to accommodate growing enrollment. In 1992-1993, the middle school expanded the commons/kitchen and music department, remodeled the present gymnasium to house a new technology lab, and built a new full-size gymnasium. In 1997, the high school completed major remodeling to add classrooms and a technology lab and enlarge the food service area. Recently completed is a covered vehicle addition at the bus barn. All buildings are suited for the modern educational programs and extra curricular activities provided for our students. Each building is completely air conditioned.
