I feel this school is by far the worst elementary school in the DISD. It's bad enough that students are getting bullied by other students...but also by teachers that don't care about their education. This school needs to be closed down if they can't find teachers that want to teach...putting students in the hallway is wrong...what is a person comes in off the street and takes them...if you don't wanna teach QUIT!!

I must say I have seen a change at Annie Webb Blanton just within the past month. There is a new assistant principal Mrs. Cruz and she is doing a fabulous job with the kids. I must say the Teachers are all doing great too. They make phone calls home and even email. Good Job Blanton.....

My child has been going to Annie Webb Blanton for 2 years,and I agree with the parent that gave a review in 2008. Nothing has changed, and don't even think that a teacher will return your phone calls.Look at the overall rating a 1 ! ! come on Blanton elementary,get a grip.

I do not like this school because this is the 1st school that I've ever had dealings with that does not welcome their students parents to be involved in their everyday learning. This school acts as if they have something to hide, they do not want the parents to visit their children's classrooms, do not want you to eat lunch w/ your child, etc. This is precisely why they can not get their students inder control, because they don't allow the parents to be active in the students life during school hours.
