Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. I sincerely hope that you are as excited for the start of the school year as I am. Burroughs High School is a very special place to me and I am both honored and proud to serve my alma mater as principal. In addition to being an alumnus (Class of 1992), I have devoted my entire career, thus far, to serving the school and community. Burroughs High School is “home” for me and, as such, I take great pride in promoting and maintaining the many programs and opportunities which have earned the school so many honors and distinctions.
Burroughs High School is unique, not just because of its isolated geographical location or unusual mascot, but because of the uncommon balance that exists between maintaining traditional high school experiences and instituting progressive programs and courses. We are proud to offer a comprehensive experience to students so that they have opportunity to enrich their educational experience. Our highly qualified faculty will facilitate rigorous and relevant instructional programs which will develop both College and/or Career readiness. In addition, we offer a myriad of courses and programs to assist students who need additional support. A vibrant and robust offering of co- and extra-curricular opportunities are available based on individual interests. In addition, student-athletes have access to competitive play in the California Interscholastic Federation and Mojave River League. And finally, students will have opportunity to become members of a spirited school community that values safety, support, and school pride.
We are looking forward to a great year and are excited for the many opportunities that await. I encourage all parents to become involved in their student’s education by monitoring academic progress, encouraging “study time,” communicating with faculty and/or staff, joining PTO or a Boosters organization, and visiting the campus.
Have a rewarding and productive school year!
Bryan Auld, Principal
Burroughs High School Class of 1992
