My kid went to Kindergarden and we had a great experience. Being an active and engaged parent is absolutely essential. I recommend it although most caution that beyond 3rd grade it is a different ballgame.

Blackham school is a good school. For the most part it's a safe place and staff really care about the students.

I have been in this school thrue 3 chldren for the past 9 years. I will say that the teachers are wonderful and very dedicated to our children. I think that we do not give them enough credit for what they do. Remember they can only enforce what is tought at home. If you teach your child to pay attention and do well in school they will. I have 3 honor roll students and I credit all the teachers for there wonderful hard work!

This school is great. I've been at this school since second grade and I am currently in seventh grade. I think that parent's are involved with the school. I've been to a few PAC meetings and there have been many parents.I learn alot and the teachers teach us good things.

I think that this school is one of the best schools . I go to this school presently and it is one of the best academicly inclined schools that I have experienced. There are a lot of kids in the honor society in that school and I think that the academic standards for that school will really rise as the school takes in more students. There are good teachers and the really do know what they're teaching. It isn't like you just sit in a class and listen to the teacher for the duration of time that you are in that class. It's in Bridgeport of course, however, the students make the school stick out in the rough city. We really do have a good school spirit. With the help of other people we cam make this school be better than the ones in Greenwich.

Teachers have forgetten that they are there for the students and have neglected helping children who need the extra help. Some teachers have lost respect for students.. ie, one teacher told my son not to waste his time visiting a college when asked who wanted to visit a college in NY... These are the people we depend on to teach our children and leave with most of the day..

Student education and safety is a very high priority at blackham. Each teacher takes the childrens education very personal and makes the children reach higher goals for themselves. We have been in many schools in many states and this has been be the best for our family.Mrs.Roberts is rare principal that makes children first.Thank You!

I really like the teachers there. They really cared about our safety.The teachers pushed me real hard.Turned me into a staight 'A' student.Teachers and staff members always were there when I had problems,and really cared for me. Food is better than other schools I've been to. Thank you, you really changed my life. Now I plan on becoming a doctor.

The elementary side of the school has few, if any sports programs free for the children. The principal and vice principal have changed often, and currently, have removed the children's playground, and given no safe enviornment for children to play at recess, or after school. The lunch program is disgraceful for the elementary school children, who are often not given enough to eat, or, meals that are unappetizing (even to an adult).
