This school does not work well with children that are addh. My child spend most of his half day in the principal office. When I withdrew him no one ask me why no one ask if there was anything they could do to help me keep my child in school.

We love Blanton! We love the chickens, goats and after school program. My child has an amazing teacher that understands how to work with a very energetic kid. The art and music teachers are amazing and dedicated teachers as well. Both of my kids have small classes. We are very pleased with this East Austin school!

I gotta hand it to this school. This past Saturday there was a school garden initiative and not only was the principal there but so were about 30 other people (teachers, parents, and students). Weekends are sacred. For parents, teachers, students and the principal to show up to do yard work is really impressive. Teachers are serious about the academics and while I'm no fan of homework, it is what it is. My kindergartner is reading so something is clearly working. My daughter had a bullying issue with another student and after I emailed her teacher not only was she on top of it, but so was the counselor and the assistant principal. I received the most reassuring email from my daughter's teacher, I can't even begin to tell you. I even forwarded it to grandparents who were as concerned about the bullying as I was. Long story short, the problem is solved. It is an uneasy peace but it is peace nonetheless. The bottom line for me is that my daughter literally RUNS into school each day. As someone who never really liked school (I went to public and private) I find that the most amazing of all. Go Blanton Bobcats!

Excellent teachers, principal and staff. The test score show it on paper and the attitudes of the teachers, staff and students show it in person; this school is exemplary.

Excellent School. When a teacher can look past a child's lisp and see that he is advanced and gifted, that is wonderful. Before my child came to Blanton he was given basic grades, although my family worked hard to push him beyond and above. It wasnt until he went to Blanton, that he was placed in advanced classes.

The teachers are great and very hard working. But the administration is a bit standoffish and the women in the front office are not very helpful

First of all, the teachers @ blanton go above and beyond. I am impressed with their unity of faculty, staff, teachers, and the parents who step up and strive for the best for the children. Secondly, their after school programs are awesome. I am looking forward to the new school year(2005-2006) and seeing greater accomplishments! -leticia casiano

I would say that blanton was not very up to par for my child. Teacher involvment and attention was quite low until I decided to take my child out of the school. Then all of the sudden they were all up in arms trying to bend over backwards to encourage us to stay.

excellent teachers who go above and beyond, amazing fine arts programs combining art, dance and music, parental involvement is somewhat lacking but teachers more than make up for it with a multitude of extra curricular activities.

This has been a wonderful learning inviroment for both of my children. Leslie Dusing is an awsome principal and keeps her staff informed and keeps them running like a well oiled machine. The teachers there are the best. They all seem to work well together and keep the children interested in their achidemics. Any child would have a great leap in life if they are fortunate enough to attend this establishment.
