Welcome to Burncoat High
ATTENDANCE MATTERS FACT:
Too many absences - excused or unexcused - can keep students from succeeding in school and in life. How many are too many? 10% of the school year - that’s 18 missed days or 2 days a month - can knock students off track.
L.I.D.E.R.
Latinos Involved in Discovering Educational Resources (LIDER) is an educational afterschool program that engages the student and her/his parents in activities that facilitate access to higher education in order to increase enrollment of Latino students in colleges and universities. View flyer...

Congratulations Edith!
Burncoat student selected to attend Future Medical Leaders Congress

Edith Mensah Otabil, a student at Burncoat Senior High School, has been nominated to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders on Nov. 14-16 in Washington, D.C.

The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or enter medical research fields. The event's purpose is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct top students in the country who aspire to be physicians or medical scientists and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.

Edith was nominated by Dr. Connie Mariano, medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, to represent Massachusetts based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine. We are very Proud of you Edith!
