The City itself was named after David Burbank, a dentist who migrated to the area following California’s succession from Mexico, to buy land in order to raise sheep. He was also a major real estate investor at the time. He was so successful with his investments that before long he no longer relied on his dental practice for income. One of his key successes was the idea to sell land cheaply to the Southern Pacific Railroad who quickly moved in to build a line through the town. Due to a price war between Southern Pacific Railroad & Santa Fe Railroad the fare from Kansas City to Los Angeles was only $1 in 1887. Therefore many migrated West and settled in the Burbank area. Finally in 1911 Burbank’s residents officially voted to be incorporated, and named themselves after the man who brought the railroad, and therefore many of them, to town.
With over 20 public schools including alternative education and an adult school, and over 25 private schools for all ages, Burbank offers a wide range of educational opportunities. Burbank has its fair share of recognized schools and Burbank’s School District has a number of Awards & Recognitions.
