HAL BENDER profile image

On behalf of the faculty and staff of G.C. Burkhead, I want to thank the parents and guardians of our district for entrusting us with the awesome responsibility of educating the students of our community. At G.C. Burkhead, we approach this responsibility with enthusiasm and professionalism. The vision of our school is to find success in each person, some way, everyday. This applies not just to our students, but our staff as well. Our teachers work in Professional Learning Communities, collaborating with each other to find strategies that meet the individual needs of each student.

I ask all students and staff to live by our expectations for success: “PAWS”

  • Personal best
  • Act responsibly
  • Work with integrity
  • Show respect

We have a great school and are doing exciting things here at G.C. Burkhead. 

If you have any questions, concerns, or recommendations, please feel free to contact me at
