Van E. Blanton Elementary School 2

The school has no teachers. The principal terminated more than 5 teachers after the school was done with testing. If they are not able to hire enough substitute teachers to cover every classroom, the children are placed into different classrooms that are already overcrowded. During dismissal I am not able to find my child sometimes and the school staff never knows in which classroom my child is placed. This is not a school because a school without teachers is not a real school.

2014 was my first year experience with Van E. Blanton Elementary. This school has a caring environment of administrative and teaching staff. They have proven to go the extra mile to ensure my child, with developmental delays, had a progressive learning experience. I like the fact, when I had a concern it was addressed in a timely manner for resolution. The school could improve with an increase of additional teaching staff because of the increasing demands for students academic learning and students with special needs. Overall, this is a good elementary school with the potential of becoming a great school with additional resources provided.

Blanton El. is by far a very difficult school to teach at...I know because I did my time as a teacher there from 1985 to 2001. Felt like I was fighting an up hill battle everyday...with students, parents and administration. Few teachers actually took pride in teaching and it reflected on their students progress. Unfortunately those students were few and in between given the lack of parental involvement and administrative guidance.

This is a great school where the staff cares for the children. They work hard to make learning fun, that is saying a lot considering some teachers today.

The school does not have a nurse's station. And if a child is injured the parents are not notified. That system needs to be corrected. If one of my children is injured again I am going to have a serious problem with the district supervisor.
