The move from middle school to high school is a big transition for 8th graders and their families. We understand this and hope to make the transition as easy and stress-free as possible.  Take this opportunity to visit Burlingame High School, speak to other Panther parents, and learn first hand about the incredible academic, fine arts and athletic programs offered by the school.  Please see our School Profile.
