We moved here last year and my daughter attends 5th grade -she loves this school. We have moved around a lot and this is now my daughter's 6th school she has attended. Overall it is a great school. The 5th graders have 2 primary teachers that the kids switch back and forth from. She loves one of the teachers and really dislikes the other. She loves the gym teacher and all of the other teachers though. The front office staff, the nurse, the counselor, and the principle are all awesome. She had an incident in the beginning of school where some other girls were talking about her and we reported it to the office and they called the girls all in and it completely stopped so I have a hard time believing anyone ignores bullying at this school. It is a smaller school which my daughter likes -overall this has been one of her favorite schools she has attended and it is much much better than two of the three 9-rated (by greatschools.com) schools she attended in another state!

This has been a wonderful school for my child. He has attended Blaschke Sheldon Elementary for the past two years and I have seen him grow into a well rounded student. The teachers have done an excellent job of working with him both academically and emotionally. When ever I have had any questions regarding his school work they have been very responsive. I rate this school as one of the highest due to the caring nature of the teachers, administrator, and staff.

I am very involved with the school and have children enrolled currently. My kids love their teachers. They come home just about each day and say they had fun at school. The teachers I come in contact with have great attitudes and high expectations. I know some parents have had difficulty but I believe it's b/c of the age of the child. You know testing the boundaries and parents are giving them more freedom. Also parents don't seem to want to be involved with the positive things happening. They only complain when things don't go their way. My kids' experience at Blaschke has been wonderful. I hope they have the same experience in the years to come.

I will have to say that the Teachers are awful. First, they are not professional. I personally think they need to clean up the school with new Teachers. They don't have the best attitude. We've been in this school for 2 years and it has been the worst school ever that my children's have attended.

I had a blast at this school!It is soo fun!All the teachers are great and nice.I was in the 5th grade in 2003.The principal was fun but strict.All the kids were so nice ,especially my best friend Amanda Ann Smith.I liked the pickle and popcorn days too.I wish that I still went to school there, but I live in Monterey Claifornia now.The school here is good but I still like Blaschke better.I am now going into the 7th grade.My GPA is 3.875. well I hope every new student at that school has a great time like I did!Thank you ! ALways,Tyler Ann Maire Wisnoski
