Since opening its doors to tuition students in 2012, the Burrell School District has seen a positive impact on the community, as well as families living in surrounding areas.
Although census data for the area hasn’t drastically changed in recent years, more and more growing families are struggling to find homes within the district that can comfortably accommodate them. Because of this, there has been an increasing interest in and need for a tuition student program that would allow students of these families to remain in the same school without placing a burden on parents to find housing within the district.
High school students are embracing a creative take on learning, thanks to the new Makerspace library now available to all students and teachers in the building.
Makerspace is an interactive workshop to which all high school classrooms have access, much like a regular library. Whenever they see fit, teachers can sign out a class period for their students to visit the Makerspace library as a supplement to traditional lessons in a classroom setting.
