What do people say about us?

What I love most about Black Rock Elementary is how much the staff truly cares about my kids, our community and their co-workers. They all seem to enjoy their jobs and have such a sense of community within the building.   -Courtney Stanesa, parent

Black Rock Elementary is a high achieving school where teachers and parents respect and support one another and believe in the same goal of providing students with a quality education where they are valued and challenged. I feel very fortunate to teach within such a collaborative and caring school and neighborhood community. -Cheri Brown, teacher

We have been fortunate enough to have our children in Black Rock Elementary since it opened. When we decided to look for a new home last year, the one criteria that we wouldn't budge on was staying within the Black Rock attendance area. The teachers are absolutely amazing. They know our kids, know how they learn, and have the flexibility to meet their needs with different teaching methods. I am always amazed by their creativity. Black Rock has grown, but continues to keep that small school feel, where everyone knows your name. -Lisa Coblentz, parent
