My kids start attending Blandford Elementary in Rincon Ga since 2006, the teacher back them they where very nice and friendly still I can say is few still nice but others don't respect parents and children,the way to spoke and say the things to me and others parents is not right and I don't think for been a school where I think my kids shout learn good manners well this is not a place where they need to be ...I don't considerate this behavior from them is appropriate and I wish everything can change in there for the best of our children..

Have had children in BES for three years now and it has lived up to our expectations (and ratings here). There is a team atmosphere between parents and staff that keeps the childen first. Chose this school district from this site when planning our move here, great resource. S. Dyroff

We have two daughters who are new to Blandford this year, and we have been so pleased with the quality of education they have received. We have been blessed with dedicated and caring teachers who have created lifelong learners and instilled the love of learning in our girls. We give Blandford our highest recommendation! :) David & Heather Cocke

Blandford is an awesome school that I am proud to send my children to! The teachers and administrative staff are excellent! Much like a private school environment without the politics!

Blandford Elementary is a new school which opened August 2006. The city of Rincon is growing quite quickly. My understanding is that most of the children are from Rincon Elementary. So far, we have had a great year at Blandford. We are new to the area, moving here from Springfield, MO. The principal and teachers are top notch and show a lot of care for both the welfare and education of my daughter. We were really concerned moving to the south and choosing a public school. Blandford is a pleasant surprise and a wonderful facility. I give it 2 thumbs up!
