About Us

Blakewood Elementary School is a 3K-5 school constructed in 1971.  The building sits in a leafy subdivision on 22.26 acres and is surrounded by playing fields, playgrounds and Canfora Woods - named after teacher Judy Canfora who was a steward of the forest and used it in her curriculum. Because of its location near a nature preserve and the forest, animal life - including deer, turkey, and ducks - are often seen in the neighborhood. 

The building itself is 92,234 square feet and was built with an open-concept design. The classrooms are organized around color-coded common areas and until security plans required them, did not have doors. Still, today, the library is divided from the hallway by a large curtain harkening back to the original open concept.
