At A. L. Burruss School, we believe the foundation for a child’s development is to provide a learning environment that promotes academic success as well as physical, social and emotional growth. The atmosphere of the school and the media center reflects deep caring for children. We believe in nurturing and promoting a love of reading and learning in our students, and in assisting them as they develop the important skills of accessing and using print and electronic information. We believe in maintaining an up-to-date, well-balanced collection of books, non-print materials, audiovisual equipment, and computers for student and staff use. Most importantly, we believe in collaboration between the media center staff and teachers to prepare students to be successful in an information-rich world.
