If there's one thing that sets Burke apart, it is the vibrancy of our community
. We thrive on in-person interactions, energetic conversations, performances at assembly, and hands-on projects in class. We value spontaneous interaction in the Library, the Atrium, and the halls.
Yet we are all confronting a once-in-a-generation pandemic
and need to adjust swiftly. Until we can safely return to school, our goals are to provide a clear, consistent
remote learning program – and to be creative and responsive
in our approach.
As a small independent school
, we have the freedom to learn, adapt, and improve as we go; to be responsive to student and family feedback; to design assessments that are not traditional tests; and, of course, to keep in close touch with each individual student.
