  • If you’re looking for a city to move to and have high school students, the city of Burnsville and Burnsville Senior High School is the top choice you. Yes, the schools in the suburbs of Minneapolis are above line in nearly all the governmental standings. However, BHS is where the teachers really care about their students. I felt each early-morning a caring person who really gave a hoot about their job was teaching me. In other words, I felt the teachers were really cognizant if I understood what they were teaching. Not for sum outdated standardized unit for testing, but if I understood the pertinent information - because they knew I would needed to know it in my future, i.e. being more prepared for a secondary education and beyond.

    I know since 1985 times have changed, and students are not as “innocent” as they once were. Yet, at Burnsville Senior High the same devotion the teachers have to their students prevails. Now that I’m in my early 40's, I have had a chance to travel the world and have yet to hear of a better secondary educational institution than BHS. If I could choose to raise my family in a suburb, I would certainly, without thinking raise my family in Burnsville, MN. I hope this helps you make your decision to live in this fine city.
