Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
We are pleased that your child(ren) will be among the nearly 4000 students in grades Pre-K-12 who are enrolled in our schools for the 2015-16 school year. Burlington is home to the largest, most diverse school district in the state of Vermont. As such, we offer our students a unique opportunity to learn how to become productive citizens in a truly global society. We have award winning students, state champion athletes, and a highly accomplished faculty and staff, including the current Vermont State Teacher of the Year and the reigning “Vermonter of the Year.” 
 
Students at all grade levels will have much to look forward to as they get ready for opening day.
