Burroughs Elementary has met AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) each year under Dr. Nelson’s leadership. In 2007, Burroughs Elementary School was recognized as one out of nine schools in the state of Alabama and one out of four schools in Mobile County to receive the prestigious Torchbearer award. The Torchbearer award is given to schools whose students are top performing students. Burroughs met the standards, exceeded the standards, and closed the gap.
We, the members of Mary Weeks Burroughs School Community, are dedicated to developing caring, responsible citizens, as well as life-long learners who believe in themselves, contribute to their community, and achieve in an ever-changing world.
