Emily '25

Started in 6th Grade – "Burke is definitely a place that makes you feel at home."
Hometown: Washington, DC
Current Grade: 9th

Favorite class: Spanish 4 with Mónica
Favorite campus spot: The Chorus Room

What is a memorable moment for you?
At the beginning of the year, [Head of School] Damian was making jokes for assembly and when he was proctoring lunch. I remember him making me tear up because of how cheesy and funny they were.

How would you describe Burke to a new student?
Burke accepts you for who you are. The teachers are so understanding in any situation, and there are always people there to help you.
