I just transfered out of Blake to Mckeel and to be honest... I miss this school SO MUCH! This was suppose to be my last year (8th grade year- which is the best year of them all) at Blake. The teachers are AWESOME! I wish i never transfered because when you enter middle school, your with the same group ...  Read more

My oldest has attended Blake for 6 yrs with 2 siblings following..I have never been a big fan of the principal. She doesn't seem concerned with consequences when children misbehave. She cares more about the child being in class and working. If the child was working he/she wouldn't have time to inappropriately ...  Read more

So not true! The teachers are very helpful to 'willing' parents. And the principal does everything for those kids. I have talked to her regarding 2 problems and she is overboard with willingness to help resolve the situation. It is your job to raise your child and maybe you have failed, not Blake Academy.

My child feels inadequate at school and teachers have not helped to come up with plan to help my child adjust. On many occasions I have made attempts to become involved and be active in a solution. Also I have experienced a snubbing attitude from the principle and some staff. Making it difficult to continue ...  Read more

We have been in several area schools both private and public. My son is a middle-schooler at Blake and I really like the community created by his grade-level teachers. They function as a team and they help the kids to feel connected to learning and to the school. He is involved in band and is taking ...  Read more

After 4 years and multiple children at Blake, I can say the following: pros: band, cons: poor leadership, about 1/4 of the staff are teachers in their first or second year teaching, high turnover rate of teachers, horrible time management for parents at school events

I'm very impressed by the responsiveness of the staff. They've been readily available to answer all questions and are quite proud of their lovely school. I'm excited that my child will have the opportunity to start band in 3rd grade and will be able to experience 'hands-on' academics. This is definitely ...  Read more

I love this school. I love that my kids will know the same teachers and routines for the next 7-8 years. They will have the opportunity to join the band at a young age and know the same kids. They will learn to have structure and someone they can find year after year to talk and confide in. I recommend ...  Read more
