The Mary Lee Burbank School

The Burbank School thrives because each and every one of us is committed to building community. Parents and teachers work hand in hand to support the physical, emotional, and academic well being of each child. In turn our students learn to care for themselves, and each other. The strength of Burbank comes from individuals, but together we are truly more than the sum of our parts.
