The teachers at this school really try to help students succeed. The school uses new and innovative methods to motivate students to master the content.

I am a former Blacow Elementary student and now parent of 1st and 2nd graders in the Spanish immersion program at Blacow. Blacow Elementary has dedicated, caring and hard-working teachers like Ms. Rivas, Ms. Comendant, Ms. de la Torre, Mr. Colon, Ms. Orantes and Ms. Rodriguez. College entrance requirements ask for a 2nd language and this a great way for your child to start this dual language foundation. I invite you to enroll your children at Blacow Elementary and challenge them to be multi-lingual. Is Spanish Immersion Right for Your Child? Do you have bilingualism, biliteracy, and diversity? Does your child have a strong foundation in English? Does your child need challenges? Do you want your child to have a linguistic edge in tomorrow s market economy? Are you willing to make a long-term commitment to the Immersion Program? http://www.fremont.k12.ca.us/domain/405

This school has a heart of gold. Down to the office ladies. Some people that work here were former students And have a love for what they do. So far we have had Mrs. Delatorre,Mrs. Manjabosco,Mrs. Comendant and Mrs. Valdivia So far everything has been good. My son is doing really Well.

I love this school because they do have the immersion program that helps kids achieve and keep the second language which is important for future use. The teachers so far have been great as well.

From a good achieving school .... It has now slipped down to a low performing institution. There is a lack of leadership, and no attempt in bringing this school upto par with others. FUSD needs to focus on the faculty's ability to raise the school standard.

My child is in Kindergarten and has the best teacher (Mrs. Forbes). The speech therapist is also fantastic. However, the school caters entirely to Spanish speaking families. There are more teachers for the immersion program than for the English resulting in limited options for teachers. The classes are overcrowded creating a difficult learning environment. There is a teachers aid that assists a few times a week testing children rather than assisting in activity. The principal is cold hearted and arrogant and definitely not concerned with providing the students at this school with an optimal education. She is just another penny pincher for the district. Teachers are not provided wit the appropriate tools to teach these kids and the kids are suffeering. My child will not be attending this school next year.

The school is low-income, more than half the school is in spanish-immersion. My child's science lab teacher was let go and the class received no science instruction at all that year, No Science! but yet, they had plenty of funding for bi-lingual programs. There is very little art, music is provided through a non-profit foundation and all funding goes to Spanish immersion. The teaching is not innovative, it does not engage the children and is primarily lectures and work sheets, even in the first grade. The principle is ineffective and does not seek to provide more for students or teachers. This school has low parental involvement and is all about bi-lingual and spanish immersion and not much else. If your child already speaks English, go somewhere else.

I can't believe how much my little nephew ( who lives with us ) has learned since he started school this year. They told us he would be reading and writing full sentences by the end of the year and my first reaction was oh no way! Here we are 8 months later and he can read like crazy and write little sentences. I am so amazed at what his teacher Ms.Weymouth was able to do, she is amazing and we are so thankful for such a great teacher and wonderful school.

Over the past seven years we've been with this school there we have seen mostly great teachers and just a few terrible teachers (usually ones ready for retirement, although some young ones too), but in general staff is very good. Principal is ineffective as far as discipline, and teachers seem discouraged and unsupported by him. Students with extremely bad behavior are not dealt with strongly enough. The school is considered low-income and this manifests in low parental involvement. Half of the school is spanish-immersion which accounts for the low test scores; these students are state tested in english even if they don't speak the language.

Blacow overall isn't bad but the teachers aren't the greatest. There are a few teachers that strive for the students success and then there are some that are quick to judge and make harsh recommendations. Personally, I would like to see the principal take more responsibilty and be more involved. I think there needs to be some changes as far as the procedures

Blacow is a culturally diverse school. The teachers are very diverse, and excellent at what they do. My son is starting 2nd grade this year, and I have no qualms over who will be his teacher, they are all excellent in their own way. My only problem is the date of posting the student rosters the day before classes start. I believe it should at least be posted the Friday before school starts. You have over 600+ students, on average of over 300 parents who will be at the window on Tuesday after 4:00 to see where their child should be the next day. I see an increase in parent and teacher involvement in the boosters, excellent. Overall the school could be considered excellent. The principal should allow the awards of the school though to be displayed in the multipurpose room for all to see.

Fantastic music and science departments! Strong writing program, teaches children how to organize their thoughts. Bilingual spanish immersion classes are offered from K - 6 grades. After school band and intermural sports provide extracurricular activities for student participation especially for the 4th grade and older students. Each Spring, students may choose to participate in the Annual Talent Show. This activity is open to any students desiring to participate. This year, the primary students will perform on June third. The upper grade students will perform on June tenth. Parents are encouraged to be as involved in their child's education as possible. Parents who desire to learn English as a Second Language may do so in classes taught by a teacher from the Adult School. Those same parents then visit the classrooms of their child to sit next to and learn with their child.

Good school if you keep your ears and eyes open. Need to know teachers (a few less than good) and then push for whats best for your child.

We have two children attending this school. I also have three older children that went to other elementary schools, therefore I do have some experience. I can say without reservation that the staff at Blacow Elementary has continued to impress both my husband and myself in the five years that our children have attended.

In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
