    "Blair has just been listed by Los Angeles Magazine as one of the 75 high schools, both public and private, most likely to get a student into a good college. It is deserved, as we list of our recent graduates now at Ivy League schools, at institutions such as Stanford, and at the top UCs. The International Baccalaureate Programme - both the Middle Years Programme (grades 6-10) and the IB Diploma Programme (grades 11 and 12), are unique in the area and certified only for this school site. We have an award-winning culinary/hospitality academy, which is (as I write this) cooking all of the turkeys for the huge Thanksgiving feast run by Union Station, Pasadena's homeless shelter - a part of their community service component. We also have a fine health careers academy, and a welcoming "international academy" for students who are new to the country and learning English. Our fine special education department rounds out the solid and inclusive feel of our school. The JROTC is impressive and very visible in the community. Even in bungalows, waiting for long-delayed upgrades to the now-empty high school building, we are doing good work. Don't judge us by our "cover.""

    "Blair offers a lot more than the community is wiling to allow. If we had more backing from the district instead of "Lets Close; to help Muir". Then not only would the numbers increase, but so would the neighboring people understand. For several years Blair has been promised a High School remodel, the two programs that are Blair's strongest defense are the JROTC program, and the IB program. The other schools wish they could have these strong programs, but there is only 1 Army JROTC program, and its setting the example. The JROTC program has IB, International student's as well as student's who just want to take a break from traditional PT. They not only learn physical fitness, but many other subjects along the Armies guidelines. The JROTC program boasts a 96% Fitness gram passage, and 99% graduation rate. So give Blair some respect, and understand were just not another run of the mill high school. Give us the support we deserve, and the lights will burn forever as the education in our students does."

    "Terrible school. The environment is discouraging, and many of the teachers, in my view, aren't doing the best job. My son attended this school, until I pulled him out and placed him into a private school, simply because he was struggling academically. He is a straight A student, and thrives to seek education at its upmost quality. However, the staff is so incompetent; and don't even make me bring up the principal. As soon as I noticed that F creeping within his report card, I thought the proper and responsible choice must be made."

    "The best kept secret in Pasadena has that exact phrase painted onto an outer wall of the school, for all to see. Not a very well kept school, not a very well kept secret."

    "My daughter entered Blair as a 6th grader in 2011. Despite the budget cuts from the State, she has received a quality education at Blair. It s not just her test scores that reflect her learning but the types of projects/assignments she works on and the way she talks about her teachers and what is she is learning in class. Her 6th and 7th grade teachers had great classroom management, were highly organized, resourceful, talented and most important committed to high quality education for the students at Blair. The teaching staff have been extremely supportive and accessible in person and through email. The Vice Principal Mrs. Brambila is an visionary adminstrator with dynamic school leadership. I know there are concerns about the social environment, but with any school, it s about the choices your child makes. We are thankful that our daughter has a good group of friends that she connected with at Blair. Like with any child, parent(s) have to be involved in their childrens education."
