Child was not challenged. Hardly had any

I moved to another county just to get my daughter out of that school . The environment is not conducive to healthy learning. My daughter was afraid everyday to go to school. The faculty that I met were unprofessional and lacked care and concern for the students. I don't like how the kids are treated like criminals instead of people. The morning routine of lining up and checking uniforms reminded me of a prison. Also there is not much in the area of extracurricular activities in comparison to other schools outside of the county. This is so unfortunate because there are some immensely talented students in that school that are not given a chance. There is also such great untapped potential in all of those students.

Teachers are very lazy.. Almost everyday there is a substitute teacher. Substitute teacher doesn't know anything therefore we just sit and look play around with our smart phones.. Students are always fighting .. Students assault other students.. Blade burg staff don't care

Bladensburg is not the best school- compared to the other schools in the area it really fall flat in comparison. However, as a student that graduated last year, I can say that despite it's many flaws, there is something good about it. The staff does care. True there are a few that don't care about their students or just ignore them, however, as my AP World History teacher told me once, compared to one of the more prestigious schools, the teachers at Blade care much more to improve their students. Blade isn't as funded as other schools, and it's a bit lacking, but the teachers that work with the students are very very helpful and are excellent guides. If your child attends, be watchful. Despite another's reviewer, my little brother was attacked by a gang and fights are not rare on campus. It isn't in the best area, but as long as they're careful nothing should happen. The biomedical program is very difficult, but if your child decides to go into it, all of the biomed teachers are excellent help.

This school is a great school for your kid to go to, there are a lot of school activities. Some parents just say stuff to scare other parents off from letting your kid from going there. But there are not alot of gangs or fights at this school. My kid loves this school and they would rather go to this school than any other school. The teachers are great and care about how the kids do and the principal is good also. As other people say that there is alot of drugs in this school its not more than any other public school in pg county and it is a great opportunity for your kid to go to this school it will teach them how to get along with other kids and how do start there life as an adult. i would recommend this school to any parent for there child. and every year the school is getting better in every way. Thank You for reading

This school has had a great improvement since the installment of the new principal Mrs. Jordan. Students are always in compliance with the uniform policy & it has become a great school where Excellence is a deliberant practice. Although personally i think the school was more fun the first year it reopened in 2005 with then principal Ms. Blanding, But it is a great school with a variety of different programs and academics!!

There were many good teachers: Ms. Klapper, Ms. Modrak, Ms. Reynolds, Ms. Simpson were the best. They really knew their subjects and were organized. They know how to teach. I had several principals while there. Attended the Old Blade, before it was rebuilt.
