I'll start by saying this, if you have 15 out of 20 children being held back or sent to summer school in ONE second grade class, the problem is the teaching not the student. I have worked hard all year trying to help my daughter understand her math, and helped her with reading. I had a conference with the assistant principal who said that failing wasn't an option and that summer school wasn't anything we had to worry about. Now it's the end of the year and I'm being told my child along with 14 others didn't make it to 3rd grade!! This school has failed my child. I also talked to the assistant principal about a teacher who constantly got in my childs face, embarrassed her, told her she was just going to stay in second grade with her forever, told her she was lazy, and that she acts just like her brother (who she doesn't even know) and always wants people to do her work for her. My other issue is with the cafeteria staff they treat all of the kids like they are in jail and not in school, the way they talk to the kids is inappropriate. And my last complaint is if a parent signs a report card or progress report asking for a conference CALL THEM BACK AND SCHEDULE ONE!

I would like to take a second to say that Blanton is a great school, but they do have some things that they could do a little bit better. One of those would be for the teachers to communicate with the parents more. If a parent emails you regarding a child please email them back! Another thing is the front office needs to be a little more cautious and pay more attention to who is picking the child up from school. I understand there is construction and things are hectic, but I think every person wanting to withdraw a student should show ID and the pick up list should be checked. Even if someone has come to eat with the child doesn't mean they can leave with them. Other then those issues that I had this year the school is a pretty good school and I will continue to send my kids there.

In spite of its demographics, Blanton is an excellent school and it barely missed the highest state rating! Its principal, Mr. Paulson is fantastic! Students grow vegetables in the courtyard where there are also rabbits and turtles; fortunately these pets are kept separate from the veggies!

Classrooms are not equally divided by number or gender. Not strong academically. There is availability of music and art but no extracurricular activities. Level of parent involvement is more than average schools require leaving a lot ot teaching to at home.

I believe Blanton is a fairly good school. I have noticed there seems to be a great teacher turn over every two or three year.

I have two children that attend Blanton & I am very satisfied with the learning that they are receiving. Blanton just remodeled the school in the summer of 2002 & it looks like a brand new school. The teachers there are wonderful & they care very deepely for each & every child that attends. I know some people may turn their nose up because of the uniform policy but most of Arlington's schools have this policy in place. I look at it as an advantaage so that no child will get made fun of becasue they are not wearing the hottest fashion. I want to thank Blanton & all it's employee's for giving their all & for caring as they do!
