At Burke's, a love of learning lasts a lifetime! As a school, Burke's continuously evaluates and incorporates key elements of the latest research on the intellectual, physical, and social-emotional development of girls into the day-to-day practice of teaching. Parent Education events give the parent community an opportunity to stay up-to-date on the latest thinking as well, and to join the discussion.
Each year, Burke's Parent Education committee, in partnership with the Head of School and administration, invites local and national thought leaders in a range of fields to share their ideas through the Burke's Speaker Series. In addition, Burke's is an integral part of the SPEAK
consortium of Bay Area schools and Challenge Success
, both of which coordinate thought-provoking, high-profile events throughout the Bay Area. The Children's Health Council
(previously the Parent Education Network) provides events for parents who have children with learning and behavioral differences throughout the Bay Area.
