The Burlingame School District provides education in a stimulating, safe and caring environment. Learning is supported through a challenging, comprehensive instructional program that strives to meet the needs of all students. Our goal is to educate our students to their fullest potential so as lifelong learners they will be able to effectively contribute to a changing society. Students, staff, parents and the community work cooperatively in an educational process that respects individual differences and provides opportunity for all.
