The Burlingame High School Excellence Fund was established in 1982, when public school funding began to decline and parents were asked to make a monetary contribution to supplement the school budget. The Excellence Fund is now a recognized tradition at BHS and enables funding of critical programs and needs including:
Subsidizing 5 additional English and/or Math sections so that class size can be reduced from approximately 34 to 25 students per class
Student programs: After-School Academic Center, Freshman Buddies Program, Career Center EXPLORE Program, PAWS Community Service Program, College and Career Counseling
BHS communication network: online Highlights monthly newsletter, Buzz Book student directory, NewsAlerts email notifications, SchoolLoop online communication system
Facilities upgrades, musical instruments, industrial technology equipment
Fundamental Supplies: computers, software, science equipment and books
Bi-Annual Teacher stipends for additional classroom supplies and project support
Senior Awards and graduation ceremony costs
Thanks to the support of our families, these fundraising efforts positively impacted every department at BHS and enriched the learning environment for your student.
