  About The School  

History of Blountsville Elementary

The town of Blountsville has had an elementary school since the commencement of public education in Alabama.  Prior to 1927, the school building was located in the downtown section near the Blountsville Methodist Church.  In 1927, a school named Blountsville Elementary was created at the present location.  Through the help of State Aid Programs and donations from local contributors, five acres of land was purchased in an effort to connect the high school with the elementary.  Blountsville Elementary had six classrooms, and by 1964, it had grown to twelve classrooms.  Unfortunately, the school was destroyed by a fire in November of 1964.  The school was rebuilt and by 1972, it had grown to housing eighteen classrooms.  In 1998, a new wing with eight classrooms was completed.  A few years later, a cafeteria and media center was added to the school.  The final addition happened in 2008.  This addition included seven classrooms.  Currently, Blountsville Elementary is the home to forty-four classrooms, two computer labs, media center, cafatorium, nurse's office, two administrative offices, a gymnasium, and extraordinary amounts of educational opportunities.       


Blountsville Elementary school has been accredited since 1979

Accreditation is a voluntary method of quality assurance developed more than 100 years ago by American universities and secondary schools and designed primarily to distinguish schools adhering to a set of educational standards.

Accreditation is designed to help educational institutions boost their ongoing performance efforts for the benefit of their students. AdvancED insists on a relentless pursuit of excellence – for itself and for the institutions it accredits. This ethic of excellence ensures that institutions will find rich benefits from accreditation and that parents can confidently make informed decisions about their children’s education, knowing their child’s school is accredited. Accreditation matters because our students deserve the highest level of educational excellence possible
