Traditional blanche reynolds has lots of great potential. My kids are happy and most of the teachers are great. There are always some that aren't. There needs to be more parental participation.

I pulled my daughter from this school half way through the year. Her teacher was horrible! She talked down to the kids and would make fun of them in front of the other students. She was never on time and always had a bad attitude.

Pulled my kids out after 2 months. I participated like expected however found that other parents did not live up to their participation required to keep their kids there. In my opinion after spending a lot of time with the kids, they were behind.

Some good teachers, but not much attention paid to the 'whole child' and their individual issues at home. It seems mostly about the numbers and not about how the child gets along on a daily basis.

Just completing our first year in Open Classroom at Blanche Reynolds (a school-within-a-school) and love it! Great parent involvement, my child is learning AND having fun (and excited about school work for the first time in a long time). Teachers give above and beyond!

Both of my sons have gone to this in their entire life. Their teachers provided great feedback on their works. My younger son needed extra help, so the school did provide help for him. He has been improving getting more 3s(max) and 2+s. It has been a great experience for my two sons.
