Paul G. Blazer has been a amazing experience. Every teacher has been so personable, and offered tremendous help. The school demonstrates hard work with strict policy, and gives you that big school feel. I love our campus, because it is mainly outdoors. We have 7 different buildings all in a unique place. I love the different buildings, because it lets you get up and move in between classes. Overall, Paul G. Blazer has been a great experience, and am proud to graduate in 2020 from this school.

I love Paul G. Blazer High School. The administration is very encouraging and it is clear that they have the student's best interests in mind. The school itself is all about tradition and I truly feel like it was a safe place for me!
I really liked how my high school offered classes to prepare me for college. I especially liked my medical terminology class since I'm planning on going into the medical field. I also enjoyed my phlebotomy class. The teachers were very helpful and patient while I was learning my new skills. I truly feel that they cared about each students success.
My math teachers actually stayed after school to tutor me. That made a big difference and I was able to improve. It helped my confidence as well as the individual attention to master the skills needed. I went from an average math student to being able to excel and get that A. I am very grateful for this school and all the opportunities it provided me with.
