  • John Muir Middle School has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years.  Unfortunately, we have now reached capacity.  After much deliberation, the Burbank Unified School District has determined that we will not be allowing new enrollments at Muir for the ‘23-‘24 school year.

    Capping a school is an extremely difficult decision, but sometimes it becomes necessary. We completely understand how disruptive and difficult this is for parents who expected to have their children enroll at Muir. These decisions are based on the capacity of our schools, staffing, and pathways.

    The capping of Muir will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. We will return capped students to Muir as soon as there is space. Students who are capped from Muir will be placed on a waiting list based on the date and time of enrollment and that list will be maintained until a student is returned to Muir.   We will call families if a space opens up. If you have enrollment questions, please contact Mary Brooks at or 818 / 729-3800, ext. 22890

    All three middle schools in Burbank are great learning environments for students and we know that students will be successful in any BUSD school.

    Good evening, this is Dr. Miller, principal at John Muir Middle School with this week’s update.

    This is Speech Week at Muir for all of our 8th grade students and we wish them well as they present to their colleagues and the judges throughout the week.

    There is a mandatory meeting tonight at 6pm for parents of students that are interested in trying out for cheer for next year. Cheer clinics will take place after school all week and tryouts will take place on Saturday. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

    All day this Friday, the John Muir Fundraising Committee is having a fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings on Palm Avenue. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

    Looking ahead, 8th grade students will take their 8th grade panorama picture on Friday, April 25th. Order forms were handed out and students who want to purchase a panorama picture should bring in the order forms with $20 cash to the office.

    Thank you and have a great week.

  • The Burbank Unified School District officially denounces racism as the product of white default/ supremacy culture and recognizes the impact of systemic and generational racism as traumatic to our country, community, and school district. In light of continuing racial violence, including the killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Andres Guardado, Dijon Kizzee, and many others, we also recognize that Black people in this country have had a unique and traumatic history in terms of racial relations, equality, and equity. We stand with the truthful and humane statement that all lives cannot matter until Black lives and the lives of indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) matter. We are taking steps to actively work towards being fully anti-racist, not only in word, but also in policy, practice, and accountability. Change is rarely easy, but with the support and cooperation of the entire Burbank school community we know that we will reflect a district that is truly unified.
