Principle Voss has refused to work with and interferes with doctors trying to diagnose a young student being evaluated with special needs. Teachers display partiality and favoritism among students, refusing to recognize excellent academic achievements in a student with disability that they state have not achieved good citizenship, when other students displaying behavioral problems noticeable to other parents are awarded for academic excellence. Blanton is not awarding academic success where it is displayed. "A" and "A/B" honor role is about grades... not about difficulties with communication and expression.

Blanton is not a good school. Teachers constantly make rude comments within earshot of parents about their kids. Faculty and staff is unhelpful, and does not care if they "forget" to gather missed work when our child had a serious illness keeping him home for a week. My child was nearly set back because of the office staff not following up and getting needed homework for me to pick up after school. Also, teachers are constantly not sending (or sending too late or almost too late) communications from the administration, causing us to miss timely information important for us to know about our child.

Blanton is one of the best elementary schools in Odessa. The staff is wonderful...from the office to the classroom. The principal is wonderful as well. This year was my son's first year in public school (in 4th grade) and his teacher is absolutely amazing and he could not be happier. Nothing but praise for this campus!

New for this year, Principle Voss has a terrific track record from her years as Vice Principle at Milam Elementary. She brings to Blanton a level of accessibility and involvement that seems far beyond the norm. She can, for example, be seen outside each morning helping kids get out of their parents' cars and into the building. She makes rounds through the Kindergarten classes to read stories to the children. She reads and responds to emails. She holds students and teachers alike accountable for being on-time.

Awful office staff and administration. No help for kids with special needs. 'No child left behind' means nothing at this school. Keep your kids out of this school if you want a positive outcome for them and a welcoming attitude toward you by staff.

My daughters started this school year without any knowledge of English language. At Blanton they got the support to develop and they learned amazingly much. They had a great year!

I have a LD son in the third grade. The school is not up to date on how to deal with children with these type problems, just easier to pass them on. A typical problem with 'no child left behind.' Blanton has a few excellent teachers, most I would consider average.
