School History


         Blanchard Elementary was established in January 2000, when the two former schools of May Greene and Washington were joined.
It serves PreK-4 students with a population of about 300.  We have three to four classrooms per grade level with a staff of approximately 50.

On December 6, 2011, tragedy struck our school in the form of a fire.  A workroom was completely destroyed, and smoke and
water damage affected every classroom in the building.  Our loving friends at Lynwood Baptist Church welcomed us for two months
while reconstruction took place.  In addition to the heroic fire fighters and countless community volunteers, they will forever be in our hearts.

Blanchard students and staff are a hard working bunch who work diligently to maintain our five star rating.
Blanchard strives to be a school that lives up to the honor of our namesake, Barbara Blanchard, and that makes our community proud.

Welcome to Blanchard, "The School with a Heart!"
