Blackburn Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

May 21, 2017 Submitted by a parent
My child attended Pre-K this past year, and the instructors were all wonderful. The lead teacher in his classroom did notice he seemed to be lacking in social skills, however, and recommended us for developmental screenings both through Independence School District and privately. While I'm not necessarily impressed by the school district's IEP procedures, the staff at Blackburn involved with this process - his pre-K instructor, the school councilor, and the principal (who I'm sad to say is leaving the district at the end of summer session this year), along with a potential Kindergarten teacher (that we found out is also leaving the district this year) - were completely awesome about everything from start to finish.I only hope the staff we'll be dealing with next year are half this good. I'm sure they will be, though.

The teacher to student ratio is incorrect. I have one child in first grade 1:27 ratio and my other child is in 3rd grade 1:26 ratio. This year we have a new principal as well as curriculum changes. If I were asked a year ago I would have rated the school a 10 this year a 3 at best. In fact, I'm currently looking to buy a house somewhere else so my children no longer have to attend this school.

My daughter started going here 2 months into Kindergarten and is about to start 2nd grade there. I have yet to find anything to seriously complain about. I have loved all her teachers, including summer school. They seem to really try to make each kid feel individual. We are moving after school starts this year and I'm trying very hard to stay in this school!
