We moved to Orlando this summer and choosing a good school for our three kids was the number one criteria in choosing where to live. After visiting various areas and their schools (Lake Nona, Avalon Park, Winter Park, Dr Phillips, etc.), we decided on Blankner and have no regrests.... Fantastic area and an outstanding school for our three kids. We'll be here a long time!
I am wondering too if teachers take care of kids with love and patience but guidance at the same time. How can I see pictures of the schools, cafeteria, if big kids eat with little ones? everything that might help me to take a decision to move there.
The uncertainty involved with re-locating and starting over can be nerve racking. Having done the research on the schools in the area before-hand assured my confidence in this school's academic capabilities. What I was unsure about (yet) was the receptance in the school and community. Thankfully, within an extremely short period of time, I knew we'd made the right decision. Not only was it the right decision but the best. Between the school, community, churches, etc. all I can say is we're finally home. Long-term we can actually visualize our children growing and contributing to this area (as adults). Thanks Orlando!
The only reason we moved to Delaney Park was so my children can go to this school. For those who say they hated it, they obviously did not give it a chance. This is the best school in Orange County by a long shot!
Horrible experience here. We switched to private school immediately. You child is just a number here. Principal and teachers are too focused on saving money, not on the care of your child.
I went here for a week and hated it the students the teachers and the school overall ITS LAMES
I love Blankner because there is such a sense of community there. There is great parent participation and support, the teachers really care about the children, and there are wonderful children at our school.
I am so blessed to be part of a place that loves children and puts them above everything! We have our priorities straight!
My little cousin is so excited and happy about learning to read. I would want this great fire that has been lit in her to be passed on to as many students as possible. Keep up the good work.
This is a true community school. Parents are very involved and students feel like they're part of a family here. Out principal, VP and dean of students are the best! I wouldn't work anywhere else
Blankner is a fabulous school. I have two daughters that attend Blankner (4th & 6th)... The teachers I have encountered have been extremely helpful and attentive. We have been blessed with teachers who genuinely care for my children and their education. There is open communication between myself and the teachers. I never feel put off. My children thrive in the atmosphere!!
Blankner is an outstanding school that serves an incredible community of supportive, dedicated families. The administration is rock-solid, with a heart for kids above all else. The teachers are professional, highly qualified, and truly value their roles as educators. Blankner's PTSA cannot be described - it's beyond amazing. Blankner really shines in every area. It is a true joy and pleasure to be a part of the Blankner family.
Blankner's students, faculty and parents make this school such a fabulous place to be!
I LOOOOOOVE Blankner. The staff is fantastic--qualified, caring, inventive and nurturing. The incredible parent involvement makes an enormous difference in making this public school a place where I can feel comfortable and confident sending my daughter. My child will remain here until the 8th grade, no switching schools for middle school! Plus, our sister high school is right next door. Our future is bright and happy. Thank goodness for Blanker!!!
Blankner is a great school that challenges our kids and helps those who really need it.
My son has just started his first year at Blankner. This school is amazing in more ways than one!!! Blanker staff and teachers are organized, efficient, and above all, caring. They all seem to be on the same page and work as a team for the benefit of challenging and educating the students. The success of this school is due largely to the amount of commitment from all the staff/teachers and parents. It really feels like a large family! The campus is a beautiful place for the students and my son actually loves going to school everyday! Blankner offers many clubs and activities to keep the students active and participating. It really feels like a large family!Thanks to the teachers/staff and keep up the great work!
Great volunteer system, everything is always well organized! Great principal, very dedicated and hands on!
