Burbank Elementary School is a dynamic school with a focus on strong academic content infused with visual, performance, and folk arts. Burbank provides the after-school programs, EXTRA and Extended Day Program with homework help, arts and crafts, and outside games. PTA in partnership with the school provides monthly parent nights and workshops to enrich and extend the learning at school. The ABC Adult School provides Parent Education classes on campus. Parents, students, and staff celebrate our school spirit each month in an assembly in which students are honored for academic achievement and character.

Students explore their talents through the magnet program. Students create visual arts through the Meet the Masters program and grade-level projects. Students act, sing, dance, create props, and serve as stage hands for theatrical performances with their grade-level. The Howlers choir performs two shows a year practicing after-school for many hours. The Burbank Cheer squad performs every month on spirit day and participates in a regional competition in the spring. The Burbank theater production class practices and performs a Broadway musical for families and friends in June. All children explore their talents and expand their knowledge at Burbank.

What is a Magnet School?

A Magnet School is one that is chosen by its district and the federal government to receive extra funding, equipment, teachers, and training to "specialize" in a chosen field or two. All of the 16 Magnet Schools in ABCUSD have been awarded over $20 million federal monies to develop and sustain theme-based programs of excellence.
