My son is a freshman at Burke and absolutely loves it. As a freshman he tested into Spanish 5-6 due to the time he took the language in Jr High. While he understood the language, the course work that is geared toward Juniors & Seniors is a bit much at first for a Freshman. The teacher worked with him and he has an A. He has done well in his classes, the teachers are available and email out status reports, they have an excellent ROTC program, and excellent activities, both athletic and non-athletic. There are great choices for classes as well compared to other schools in the area. My son attended all the open houses for schools in OPS and Burke was the top pick and he is glad he made the decision. The school is very diverse and it would be extremely difficult to not fit in!

If your child is all about sports and nothing else, this is the school for them. If not, best go elsewhere. This school is very sport oriented and causes the athletes to get much favoritism. The teachers are not very understanding when it comes to personal problems or injuries with students if it didn't directly come from a sports accident. Thankfully, if you live in the Omaha Public Schools district, you can choose which high school to go to and hopefully won't choose this one.
