I have had three children attend this school. All three have very different ability levels and disabilities. The teachers and staff here are wonderful and really care about the children. The parents are highly involved also. I would not hesitate to recommend this school!

My two boys transferred from Melbourne and enrolled into Blackburn Elementary School on August 20, 2004. Honestly, this is the best group of personnel that I have ever encountered. Their teamwork is rated A+. The quality of teaching is A+. The staff gives 100% to their job and to the students and families. For all I have dealt with concerning my boys, the whole staff has been absolutely wonderful. I cannot thank each and every member of Ms. Nancy Beal's team at Blackburn Elementary School(including all teachers, aides, counselors, nurses, and everyone in between) enough. Thank you for being who you are. Ms. Beal and Ms. Bidwell are doing an awesome job of providing the best staff for our students. If only other schools could be so lucky. Keep up the good work!

My daughter attended her first year in a public school at Blackburn in the 2nd grade. Mrs Sheridan was her teacher. My daughter learned many things from her teacher and became a better reader. Mrs. Sheridan is gifted with the ability to play intstruments which helps her students learn through music. This school also did a vision screening and I was informed that my child needed glasses. I would not have got this at my previous Private Christian School. The library and the Computer Lab is well staffed and stocked. This was also not available at my previous private Christain school. I am also pleased that Spanish is taught also in this school which will help my daughter in the future.Keep up the great work Mrs. Beal!

Great ESE program- My son suffered a stroke at birth and was left with a diagnosis of rt Hemiparesis, meaning his rt upper and lower extremities are weakened. I was worried about transferring him from Sarasota, where I moved due to a job relocation to St Petersburg. However, I have been very happy with the teachers and programs at this school. My daughter started K there this past school year and I was very happy with her program as well. Their aftercare program, run by the YMCA, on site, is a real plus, as is their summer camp.

My daughter who has now finished her first year in college,went to Blackburn starting in Kindergarden and was one of the first to go through the fifth grade. She had a wonderful Kindergarden teacher named Mrs.Willis who gave my daughter the desire to learn. She was a big part of why my daughter is going to college to be a teacher herself. I can only speak highly of the schools in Manatee County. All of my children attended Blackburn Elementary and have gone on to do very well in middle and high school. They have a wonderful gifted program that my daughter was a part of and enjoyed very much.
