Welcome to Burbank High School – Home of the Bulldogs!

If you’re looking for a school that truly gives importance to your child’s education, then this is the right place for you! Every year, we review our school programs and activities to improve our curriculum and to make sure our students are getting involved in modifying our teaching methods, extra curricular activities, and even our school facilities.
