I love this school. My child loved this school. He graduated and is now in college. He has often referred to the learning he had at this school. He had the discipline and knowledge that made him able to be in the advanced classes in high school. I laughed at how often his teachers asked me where he had gone to school before, but as small as this school is, they knew of it! It has a great reputation for academics. I tell people all the time to send their kids here, no matter where you live. It is really worth it. Best academic investment I made for my child.

We all had to deal with schools closing. I was so upset. I had to assume the role of a teacher assistant but I was surprised right away. This school was prepared right away for classes to be taught through distance learning. The kids used their iPads (which were required on the supply list). Teachers worked hard, and I got to see and hear inside the classroom. I decided I was going to pray more for teachers. I could never do it. They learned new things and started and finished books and a novel (which the teacher quizzed them on). I am glad this is a small school. This is a benefit now for kids for sure. This staff is stellar. They even had violin classes continuing. My child couldn't wait for the call from her kindergarten teacher. Classes for my older son started at the same time as his normal day. The teacher in kindergarten even read with my daughter on the phone! I was really happy with their quick response. My kids were already ahead but now I understand how being small allows the teachers to make quick changes and support every kid. They really miss their friends but did not miss school learning. One day the principal came and delivered schoolwork to my mailbox just to make sure my daughter had what she needed. They had a drive-up lunch each day ready to go. It was free to anyone wants lunch. Chef Doss can cook! Going back this fall because I can count on this school during any emergency. They take care of their kids.

I recently went to tour this school. I was greeted by a secretary who gave me a lot of info and made me feel welcome. Then while I was waiting to meet the Principal a group of students come to meet me. Honestly I thought they were specially selected for guests. They were all very well behaved. I thought like the best and smartest kids would meet me! They talked about everything from their classes to lunch to places they had traveled at school and the computers they built. Like wow these kids love school. What really shocked me was when I went from class to class all the kids in the classes wanted to talk with me and were all just as sharp and smart as the others. I was really shocked and thought this whole school is full of these kinds of kids! They made me feel welcome and were funny too.They made me proud just looking and listening to them. It was clear that this was no act. Do yourself a favor and take a look at this school. My visit was wonderful and there is no question that somebody loves some kids in this place. I didn`t even visit the other schools on my list!

Blossom Wood is an excellent school if your child needs advanced academics it is here.!Kids read novels and experience a lot. The parents really show a lot of support. I was impressed when I visited. I like spoke with several random students of different ages and they were ALL able to communicate well, showed great confidence and loved school. The expensive private schools are no better no matter how much more space they have. I saw true love from the teachers and some great communicators! And I can get this in North County??!!!! My kids will graduate from this school!

I left the Hazelwoood School District last spring due to retirement. I taught 28 years in the district and have seen it change in so many ways. What I know for sure is that the district is now awarding so many children in our city with failure. It made me sick and no matter how I fought for children I was surrounded by apathetic coworkers and administrators. I referred all my best students to this school. Academically it is great. They demand the best from their students and they get it if parents commit. I don`t know one kid that did not make academic strides here. I do know that special education is not their specialty and you should not consider this school for those needs. They turn out the best students who are wanted by the best private schools.Call me a hypocrite but I saw great potential and sent it to this school so that they had a chance to win!See this school out. It`s in my opinion the best elementary school in North County.

I love this school. It is a great school. My child graduated and went to Westminster but was accepted by Whitfield and Crossroads too. The school is small and it is training ground that will benefit your child for year to come. My child performed at the topOf his class. I am so grateful. Enroll in this school and don`t change until graduation. Your student will be set! The bar is high for teachers here. Love it.

This school is a real jewel in North County. It is small and it appeals to the Professional Black parents so it has a little air about it that is not at all what you would consider stereotypical,for a,predominantly black school. Parents are organized, involved, and I was so impressed with the way the children behave. The academic at this school have a long reputation of leading its grads to upscale private middle and high school. I loved my experience when I visited. Enrolling both of my children from Parkway school district. My neighbor and a church member rave about this school. The only problem is they don't do well with kids that have a lot of learning and behavior challenges.
