This school is just the only right school for my grandchildren.All the teachers are supernice and always sooo helpful.


Posted January 31, 2006

I went to Blanche when I was younger so when it was time for my son to start school I had no problem sending him there. The staff is one of the best I know. They help the kids do the best they can. The parents get involved in all the fundraisers they have. It my be a small school but they are big at heart.

Three of my children have attended school at Blanche. As with any school, we have occasionally experienced differences,but over all, it is a Great School!! The principal and staff are very caring. I feel that my children are well taken care of. As a parent, if you are reading this, you know how important that is. I would like to thank them for that peace of mind.
