  • Burke County High was a school that I enjoyed so much especially my senior year. The year I graduated was 2001. I got chances to explore the school and I know so much that my senior seemed to be like the most memorable year. The principals, teachers, and even the lunch staff were my favorites. My school year 98-2001 at Burke County High School was outstanding.
