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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
