How would you describe Burke to a new student?

Burke is a warm and welcoming place with teachers who truly care about the students' individual learning strengths. They want to help students feel confident in the subject while also giving them room to grow at their own pace. Burke truly cares about each student and wants them to feel comfortable to express themselves in and outside of the classroom from the beginning.
