Welcome to BHL


    Welcome to Burney-Harris-Lyons Middle School, home of the R.O.A.Ring LIONS! It is an honor and pleasure to serve as principal of Burney-Harris-Lyons Middle School. At BHL, we are more than a learning institution, we are family! We take pride in being a community of nurturing educators who go above and beyond to meet the needs of ALL learners in order to support academic, social, and emotional growth.  Student achievement is our top priority. It is our goal to cultivate successful lifelong learners who are critical thinkers, college and career ready, and have the capacity to compete globally. We strive to maintain a positive and cohesive learning environment that offers challenging and exciting learning experiences for ALL students.

    A solid partnership between the school, students, parents, and the community is key to building a strong school community and providing successful learning opportunities.  I invite you to become active in our school community by joining our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), our Local School Governance Team (LSGT), Parent Advisory Board (PAB) and/or by supporting our school events.  

    I anticipate an exciting year as we journey to greater heights of academic excellence.

    We Care. We Count. We Can.  We are LIONS and We ROAR!
