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!
Blanto have some great teacher but they cafeteria is a desaster my kids have to wait to long in line to eat breakfast. Well the lunch ladies are not nice to the kids! Good thing thay have improve in there parking!
I think there are a hand full of very awsome teachers at Blanton and some who should not be teaching.All in all in my opinion the school is 'OK'....
Blanton is a great school! My children enjoy the whole environment. The teacher care about your children getting the best education possible.
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.
not much parent involvement but academic quality is good but not great but a nice bunch of teachers.
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!
