Did you know that the city of Burbank was named after David Burbank, a dentist who migrated to the area following California’s succession from Mexico? In fact, David Burbank came to the area in order to buy land and raise sheep. However, neither dentistry nor raising sheep provided him with much of his wealth. Burbank gained most of his fortune from real estate investing. His key contribution was selling cheap land to the Southern Pacific Railroad hoping that they would build through the city, and therefore, bring more people to the area. His plan worked and in 1887 a price war between Southern Pacific Railroad and Santa Fe Railroad allowed travelers to move to Los Angeles from Kansas City for only $1. This brought an influx of settlers to the Burbank area. In 1911 the residents honored the man who brought many of them to the area by officially voting to be incorporated as the City of Burbank.
Burbank has over 20 public schools and over 25 private schools for all ages. The Burbank School District offers a wide range of educational opportunities, training classes for adults, and extracurricular activities.
