As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Good school, just needs to be a little more disciplined. Lots of after school fights. But it seems better this year (2013-2014) then last year. New principal seems to be on the ball.

Dedicated principal and faculty who are willing to try and do whatever it takes to meet the needs of their students, academically, socially, and emotionally. The same type of support and caring is shown to the parents and the families of the students.

Blankenburg is the best-kept secret in West Philadelphia. The teachers care about the kids and about each other. The programs at Blankenburg are designed to help the kids be all that they can be, no matter what the ability or disability. The principal also cares about both the kids and the teachers. Great little school.

As with a lot of other schools, some teachers were actually caring and others were not. Teachers at times privacy codes by discussing children's business with other parents. ( Without the child or parent in attendence)

Five out of six of my children attended Blankenburg. There are great teachers there. My last child was skipped a grade and made honor roll this year. The following techers had a great impact on my children: Mrs. Borden, Mrs. King, Mrs. Tenaglia, Mrs. O'Connor, and Mrs. Slade. I would especially like to thank Dr. Spink and Mrs. Miller. I know my children were hard to deal with as they went through some emotional problems. Blankenburg is a great school. My family will miss it.
