This school has horrible teachers teaching 8th grade. I have had extensive issues that have gone all the way to the state level with two of the teachers. I am extremely disappointed that my child had to attend this school. My child has not been well prepared to enter high school. The new administration is trying, but the staff exhibits no respect for the administration, so they have been largely ineffective. Very sad that the teachers in 8th grade have lost sight of the importance of providing a quality education to our youth.

This school has improved dramatically where the administration is concerned. The principal and both assistant principals were replaced in 2012 and it was definitely for the better. They are all a real presence in the hallways now and the assistant principal is a terrific guy who emphasizes that kids take charge of their own problems and try to fix them with the school's help. The student body at this school has changed very rapidly in recent years and it has not been for the better. Blalack is not what it used to be as a safe middle ground before high school. there are certain classes you would not want your child in but in a world of diversity, your child will surely get some experience at this school! The counselors at the school are really hands on and have an open door policy. they do much more than just schedule your child's classes. My son needed some emotional help at the beginning of his first year and the Counselor was wonderful with him. Academically, the entire district has taken a step backward with the emphasis on language arts instead of math and science so unless your child is in pre-AP classes the education is not really where it should be.

The councilors are terrible and they did not help my daughter, all they can do is say sign a sheet , and when i ask for a meeting they did not give me one, I'll say that some teachers are very nice but the principle needs to learn to take matter into his own hands not to just sit around, they do not listen to the students feelings and they make their own lives worse, In my opinion i think they should not try to HELP the students and get into their lives, NO THAT IS NOT THEIR BUSINESS,They are teachers and they need to leave the students ALONE!

Administration is too concern about performance on standardized exams. Administrators not held accountable for their actions.

Blalack is a great school -- it is a member of the TBEC Honor Roll, it is an Exemplary campus, it outperforms all other middle schools with similar size and demographics in the state. It is a great place for teaching and learning.

If your child does not require special education, you will be fine. They are concerned with the basics and the enhancements. Their music department is wonderful. I wish we had never moved into the CFBISD area. Of course we had not idea, our child would require special education.

Fabulous school and school district. All the teachers have a zero tolerance for late homework. Very important for my son. All the teachers post the weeks homework on the website as well as the daily grades.
