Greetings and thank you for showing interest in Burbank Elementary!
    Burbank Elementary is a Vanguard neighborhood school that hosts a school-wide fine arts magnet program. All students in grades PK-5 participate in the fine arts magnet program. Magnet classes are 55 minutes during the school day, however we also offer after school magnet enrichment opportunities for the advanced performing groups. Students are expected to advance in skill development so they may join a fine arts performing group. Students perform and display their work in school-wide events throughout the year, and select performers participate in local area competitions and gain exposure and experience at a multitude of community events. At Burbank, we also integrate fine arts with other curricular content areas such as Science, Literacy, and Mathematics.

    Our application process follows HISD policies and timelines:

    Phase 1: September 27, 2019 - December 6, 2019
    Qualified in-district applications received during this phase will be entered into lotteries if there are more applicants than seats available. 

    Phase 2: December 7, 2019 - February 28, 2020
    Qualified in-district applications received during this phase will be offered seats on a space available basis. 

    Phase 3: March 1, 2020 - Onward
    Only in-district applicants new to HISD and out-of-district applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis, if space is available.
