Burnside State High School is a smaller high school. It means we get to know the students quite well, how each one works and their strengths. Students don't fad away into the background. Because of this, they are Safer. All students know the boundaries, and if they choose to cross those boundaries, we will deal with it. Smaller classes also let us work Smarter . And thus our results for the school are good. Smaller , Smarter, Safer, yes, This is the essence of Burnside SHS.
