Our teachers are excellent at meeting the instructional needs of each student at Blanchard. Social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs are met through passionate, innovative, and individualized instruction.

Innovative Ideas

Blanchard educators achieve academic rigor in innovative ways.

Advanced Technology

In collaboration with the library media specialist, students learn 21st century skills using a variety of technology tools. Technology is integrated into lessons and showcased in various ways.

Clear Communication

We work hard to help you understand your child’s education. We communicate via our Blanchard app, emails, text messages, phone messages, newsletters, web site, social media and more. Families are always welcome to call and visit our school at any time.
