Blackwell Public Schools

Blackwell’s public school system is rated among the top award-winning systems in the state. Facilities include a modern campus-style high school for grades nine through twelve, a middle school for grades six through eight, and an elementary school for grades PK through fifth. 
Blackwell Public Schools have an enrollment of  around 1,400 students on the three different school sites. Innovative programs to accelerate learning at all age levels include tools such as Leap Track Learning Systems, Waterford, and Reader & Math Rabbit for early childhood; Star math/reading, focus on Reading and Renaissance software in the elementary and middle schools; and Skills Bank, A+ and Work Keys are used at the high school level.  Through the use of interactive SmartBoard technology at all levels, learners are actively engaged in higher order thinking processes. Student learning and teacher instruction have become intertwined as a prescriptive process whereby student data is used to identify individual areas of need.
Community involvement and support have long been recognized as staples for the Blackwell Public Schools. The Blackwell Public School Foundation has collected more than $1,000,000.00 in funds used for grants to teachers. The foundation’s generosity and vision has created a protected endowment with gifts to the foundation becoming perpetual. 
While Blackwell Public Schools is proud of the recognition it has received for its many accomplishments and commitment to higher student achievement levels, the most important and rewarding feature of our schools is that we truly care about each student and are committed to their personal success and well being.
