Opportunities

Excel at BURTON


Academic Excellence:
Burton Elementary and Middle Schools have a diverse population that creates a rich, multicultural learning environment. Both schools are equipped with the latest technology and classroom design to support teaching and learning.


School Uniforms:
K-5 students at Burton follow a uniform dress code, which removes distractions from the classroom, promotes community, and provides a cost saving to families.


CULTURAL CENTER for English Language Learners:

Burton offers a specialized cultural center for English Language Learners. Teachers are specially trained to work with English Language Learners.


Early Learning Community, Preschool and All Day Kindergarten :
Burton is proud to offer a range of services for early childhood development including preschool and all-day kindergarten. A designated Early Learning Community, Burton provides professional development, training, and support services to educators and child care-givers, including certified teachers in Pre-K through 3rd grade, teachers in Head Start, private preschools and child care centers, in-home child care providers, and parents. In-home care-givers and parents have the opportunity to attend Play & Learn Groups with literacy-based activities for children.


After School:
The LOOP program, available after school, offers academic support and enrichment along with recreational activities. Students also have the opportunity to participate in athletics.


Rules, Safety, Discipline:
All GRPS schools provide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS). PBIS is a proactive, team-based framework for creating and sustaining safe and effective schools. Educators emphasize prevention of problem behavior, development of pro-social skills, and the use of data-based problem solving for addressing existing behavior concerns. The result is a fair, firm and consistent approach to rules, safety, and discipline.
