Our mission is to create a positive, supportive community of learners who work together to become our best selves.  We endeavor to cultivate a critical understanding of our community, and our world, so that we develop the necessary knowledge and skill to impact our future.  We value the uniqueness of each member of the Burke community and develop leaders who are ready to enter and transform our world.

Burke is a place where students develop a positive sense of self and others.  Students are empowered to collaborate, own their learning, and persevere in the face of both academic and social adversity.  They are supported and inspired by compassionate, committed adults who model the habits of collaboration, perseverance, reflection and refinement to provide a rigorous and critical curriculum to continuously improve our practice.  We acknowledge that our school’s, students’ and community’s success depends on a thoughtful partnership between each--a partnership that centers around social justice values and the best interest of our students as the driving force for our work together.
