  • I am very impressed with Blackshear Elementary. I have positive contact with the staff. Anything I need, they have. I had my first parent/teacher conference today and my experience is that they want to help my children be all they can be. Thank you BES.

  • I can't stand this school! The teachers don't communicate with the parents. The school puts way to much stress on the kids for CRCT.
