Montgomery Blair high school is a very big school. Many might consider this to be a bad thing, but it allows the student to find multiple different types of people in one building. Everyone can find someone who they fit in with. Blair is also extremely diverse which allows you to experience lots of different cultures and outlooks. On top of that the teachers and administrative staff member are truly there for each student. They are constantly having academic support classes for those who might need a little extra help. In terms of sport, Blair provides every sport that Montgomery county allows also it includes sports for people with disabilities. There are tons of activity and field trip to sign up for. Overall it’s a very loving environment which allows you to be who you are. There is a top magnet program, although I'd say they are average for anything but the magnet program.
I like the opportunities my school provides. There are many different programs, clubs, classes, and leadership opportunities for people of all kinds of interests!
