James Hubert Blake High School Reviews
Rating 3.72 out of 5 505 reviews
I liked their arts program and how devoted they were to their students and the music program. The principal was an amazing principal and made sure every student felt included. It was truly a good experience.
One thing I liked about the school was the diversity. I also like the variety of classes available to take.
Despite my 2 star rating, I have had a few amazing teachers (mostly in the art department), and have made some amazing friends. That being said, my time spent here was incredibly detrimental to my mental health, and I am still recovering.
All of my daughter's teachers are caring always going the extra mile when she needs it. The music department team are wonderful, patient, enthusiastic and very caring. I'm very grateful for all of them.
Honestly I never intended to go to Blake. I was supposed to have my cosa cross over so I could attend Blair however things don't work out always. Blake offered me a lot of opportunities artistically I'm always grateful for taking although the students weren't the greatest people to surround myself with I made do. The staff was a big help you get your occasional problematic teacher but who doesn't? wouldn't go again but definitely cherish the weird experience I had with that school. In the end it was better for me in the end because I'm an arts major it only made sense I go to an arts school, (the best and only one in the county for that matter).
Blake offers the best college preparation out of all schools in the Northeast Consortium (the NEC, comprised of Blake, Paint Branch, and Springbrook). The administration, especially the principal, does its best to ensure students have a welcoming and supporting environment. The building is always clean, the students and staff are diverse, the courses are challenging, and I had no trouble finding friends and building relationships with teachers and counselors. If I could go back four years and choose the NEC school I wanted to attend after graduating middle school, I wouldn't hesitate to choose Blake again.
It’s a good school, has a lot of diversity and a great music and arts program. Students have many opportunities to involve themselves in school actives and the many clubs.
What I liked about Blake High School is the kindest of the staff. Teachers were always there to help me if I needed it and always let me know I could go to them if I had any questions related to school or life.
The atmospehere was completely different compared to middle and elemantary school. You communicate on a professional level. As well as the chance to get internships or part time jobs with a special class where you have a coordinator help you get there.
At Blake High School, I feel very safe and welcomed. Teachers here are very flexible and understanding of students. The students here treat each other as a family as we are very familiar with each other.
Very diverse environment. Surely to find a group of people that you can relate too. Lunch food can be improved but staff members are heart-warming. Great school spirit! Definitely proud to be a bengal.
Teachers were amazing. Had a great experience. Had a fun time during football games and pep rallies. Sports teams were competitive. Education was good and the people there were very supportive. Overall, I had an amazing four years at Blake.
I loved how accepting the entire school was. The teachers are always there for you and are willing to help as well as the students. The community is just overall really supportive and understanding.
It's a good school but it gets boring pretty easily because there aren't really that many interesting things to do there. For example, I feel like lunch should be somewhat fun all we ever do throughout the school is eat and walk around the school.
Blake is a welcoming environment with incredible students and staff. Every once in a while you will run into a teacher that is difficult to deal with, but for the most part teachers are willing to work with and support you. The school is clean and well-run, but should devote more time and money to the music program, considering it specializes in Arts and Humanities.
Blake is a great school, they have so many fun and well run clubs and activities, and everything is so inclusive! Theres so much to do and so many new people to meet. The teachers make class so much fun, especially the art and music departments.
What I really like most about James Hubert Blake High School was the diversity in not only the students but the teachers as well. The different cultures and diversity present at James Hubert Blake High School made the atmosphere very comfortable due to the fact that you could go throughout the school not feeling alone in anyway. I also really loved my schools music department. Blake is known as a signature school for arts and music and everything that made everyone be able to display their artistic expressions.
