From our "no cut" policy to our extracurricular schedule, we foster an environment where students can explore, collaborate, and try new things – whether they are in 6th grade or 12th grade. Whether you are brand-new to cross country or extremely well-versed in technical theater, Burke will be your space to learn and excel.
Students have numerous extracurricular time slots throughout the week. Athletics and theater typically meet after-school, while choruses and bands meet during class time. All students join at least one club, which meets during the morning community period, and can join up to several affinity groups, which meet on a rotating basis. Some clubs, such as The Cageliner (student newspaper) or Student Government, also meet after-school to work on large projects.
