My grandchildren attend this school. The teachers have been great and really interested in teaching my girls. They are both well read and ready for the next grade. I was an elementary teacher or 10 years and am very pleased with this school, it's teachers, and its administrators. ,
Nothing but negative to say about this school.. Principal overreacts to situations. She makes decisions based on a determination to prove a point to the parents. Wants everyone to understand (as if we don't) that she is the one who is in complete control of the school. Communication is not encouraged between parents and the school. Parents do not feel welcome. Children are treated like little robots. They are not encouraged to be themselves but rather made to feel that they must conform and fit into the mold that the school has set for them. Overall, I would not recommend this school to my worst enemy.
fantastic academic program good teacher/principal student relation.Good academic performance
The very best school in rutherford county led by the very best principal mrs.Ford.
Nothing but positive to say about this school..If there ever is a problem,it is resolved quickly and satisfactorily. The teachers are the best...and Ms. Ford does a great job especially since it has doubled in size in such a short time.
Our children can't wait to go to school every day because they love Mrs. Ford. No other principal takes the time to read and answer every letter that the kids write to her. She also is the reason my kids can read almost 2 grades above grade level because she makes reading fun with the A.R. Store and Carnival. My score is A+ for Mrs. Ford.
My children love going to Blackman because the principal is always doing things for the students. The principal really loves and cares for the students and makes sure they have a safe and good learning place. The principal hires only the best teachers. If you get a chance to have Mrs. Witt or Mrs. Wray your child will love school. They are the two happiest teachers in the school and they make you feel like school is the best place on earth!
We love all the Blackman Schools! We moved to our subdivision so our girls would go to Blackman Elem. and we have been nothing but pleased. The grades have gotten better, the teachers seem to care more and the principal is great. Unfortunately we have just been re-zoned and just found out this week. Word of mouth and still no letter from the school board. We live 3 miles from the school and we have to send our children farther away to go to school next year. We are devestated. I can not begin to tell you how upset we are. The school they are zoned for now doesn't even have enough books or desks(they went there early last year). To make it worse, we can't even get a zone waiver to drop them off. 3 miles! Thanks school board.
