I love this school! My time at Blackstone made the best 4 years of my life. What I really love that the fact the workers there wanted to be called by their first name and what I really like about that is want to be your friend and they really do care about their students and they do want them to succeed. And with that I really love the people there because right now the people who I met there and become friends with is people who I Iove. Next is the way that they teach you, for me having autism I had face challenges with learning and to know what to do but the teachers there really helped to know the material or help me anyway they can and that another I really love about Blackstone. But this is just few amazing things about Blackstone, right now I graduated from Blackstone but being there was one heck of a lifetime.

Overall, Blackstone Academy is a pretty good school with an environment that doesn't exist anywhere else. Even though the recent expansion changed the school climate, it's still a small school, and most of the general systems within the school didn't change. Being placed in one advisory that you meet with everyday for four years helps to create bonds between people that almost certainly wouldn't have happened otherwise. The workload is more rigorous than most of the public schools around it, which serves to help students prepare for their futures.
Blackstone Academy is one of the school you that are unforgettable. The teachers are extremely respectful and are always willing to help. This school is like a huge family. Everybody knows each other and have a close connection with each other, something that you don't see often in other schools.
