My Girls have both thrived on this campus. They have been involved in the music programs, sports and student government. I highly recommend this school and the 3 IB programs offered here to anyone who wants a great educational experience for their child.
This school was not a good fit for my family. My child felt isolated and picked on, was not happy and grades suffering. We left and it is like night & day. My child is thriving and happy
Excellent. Our son is in the 7th grade at Blair this year (2019-2020). He went to private school in Glendale from Pre-K through 5th. Even though we lived in Los Feliz last year, we sent him to Blair after much research of public and private schools in LA and Pasadena. We loved the school so much, we moved to the area last May. I CANNOT BELIEVE the resources and support that are available at Blair FOR FREE. Another reviewer said this, and I agree, I would pay good money to send our son to this school. My husband and I are both lawyers and education is very important to us. We believe very strongly in the education he is getting at Blair due to its IB curriculum. I am so so thankful that we did not jump on the bandwagon and just pay $$$ to send our child to private school b/c it's what a lot of our friends were doing. I think he is getting a BETTER education as well as a Better life experience at Blair. It's diverse, it's a good size, there is a brand new high school building that just opened last year. Blair had the highest AP pass rate in the district last year. Blair is gem of a school and I think it is only getting better and better. Everyone I know is so happy there. PLEASE COME VISIT IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT IT. I visited at first b/c my husband was intent on an IB education because he got an IB diploma in Houston, Texas, and then went on to an ivy league school and law school and always felt so prepared b/c of his IB education. I was prepared to visit but I presumed I would find a reason to rule it out. It was far from our home, I was tentative about public school generally. But from the moment I arrived, I could tell it was special. I had a much better feeling about Blair than I did about Polytechnic, which we also considered. This school is truly an undervalued resource, a diamond in the rough. You have to see it to believe it.
Its an ok school just stay involved get into the Upward Bound Program to ensure your child will get all the help needed to graduate AND go to college
