    Our grandchildren are very happy Kaneland Blackberry Creek Elementary School. They are growing and blossoming each year. We are impressed with their work and their progress. Thank You to all who share in their education.

    My daughter currently attends kindergarten and I am very pleased with the school overall. My wife also volunteers at the school and enjoys doing so. I feel informed and kept up to date on school activities as well as my daughters progress. The school recently added an addition about two years ago as part of the referendum and my daughters class has about 20 kids in her kindergarten class which I feel is just fine.

    This is a wonderful school. I am proud that my daughter has the opportunity to attend this school. The teaching staff and principal as a whole are great!

    As a former teacher my children's education is very important. Blackberry Creek's principal teachers and support staff go over and above most of the area schools. They educate each child as individuals and look our for their well-being. As a parent volunteer since day one of the school I have never met a more dedicated staff as a whole. I am proud to have both of my children attending.

    The quality of academics is excellent. There are many specials at the school that the children are involved. Parent involvement is different with each grade level. The PTO does not get as much support as it would like.
