  • 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.

Principal's Message 2023-2024

  • February 20, 2024

    Good evening, this is Dr. Miller, principal at John Muir Middle School with a special announcement.

    If you missed last week’s announcement, we have started a fundraiser to renovate our track. The John Muir Fundraising Committee has pledged $15,000 and we are trying to raise an additional $15,000 to match it and complete the cost of the track renovation. I am very happy to announce that we have raised $8,950 and are already 60% of the way to our goal after only one week!

    We have already achieved two of our schoolwide incentives, so our administrators and counselors will be dressed up like squirrels and unicorns on Thursday and most of our faculty and staff will color their hair green one day next week.

    If we hit $10,000 then all of our students will receive one of our extremely popular cookies from our cafeteria and if we reach our goal of $15,000, we will turn one of our Bean Run days into a choice play day in PE.

    Contributions of all sizes are greatly appreciated. If $20 is all that you are comfortable donating, then we are happy to partner with you and thankful for your generosity.

    We are creating a mosaic giving tree that will be permanently and prominently displayed on Mustang Field that will recognize families and businesses that give $250 or more.

    You can easily donate by clicking the link on our homepage or bringing in a check made payable to the John Muir Fundraising Committee and all donations are tax-deductible. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

    Thank you again for your generosity and have a great day.

  • 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.
