My two sons attended Blodgett. BES is a small school of 20-40 students, with two teachers: grade 1/2 and 3/4. (Kindergarten was added after my sons' time.) The small classes mean that students are given more duties than in a larger school: they answer the telephone, assist with lunch, and manage their own paperwork. BES has a close, family feeling, and the community club is active in getting things done for the school and its alumni.
