Burnsview is a diverse community dedicated to helping its citizens on their personal journey of growth and achievement.  We become our best selves in a safe and challenging learning environment that encourages risk-taking, cooperation, mutual respect and fun.
                 
The Griffin symbolizes Burnsview.  It is believed to have originated from Indo-Iranian mythology, the "Gryphon".  It was absorbed into the Greek culture as a fabulous creature symbolic of strength and became the Griffin.  Griffins are portrayed with a lion's body, an eagle's head, long ears, and eagle's claws to indicate the need to combine intelligence and strength.  The mythical Griffin drew the chariot of the sun and guarded a golden treasure.
We believe that this representation depicts what we strive to accomplish at Burnsview where our students are challenged to become the best they can be physically and intellectually.
