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.
If i had the word for blankenburg it would do wow beacause its teachers are one of a kind they will never stop care for the students Ms.king,Ms.Newshaffer,And Ms.o'keffe are some of the great teachers Blankenburg have to offer to the older kids.
They are really impressive - they make incredible use of the resources they have, the staff and students have a great attitude and are really nice people.
Blankenburg is a school of dedicate teachers who go far beyond what is expected so their students can grow and flourish into productive, caring citizens. Bravo!!!
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.
