    "If you're looking at the IB Program in terms of education, you do learn lots and you gain useful skills (you teach all these things yourself). Also the previous student academics survey answers pertain to IB students mostly, non-IB students are generally not very committed or have a focus on their future. IB really saves this school."

    "As said before, there are a few gems, but they are out-weighed by the rest. My principal, is, well, not really a principal and this unfortunately affects the rest of the staff; she has low standards. My principal is rarely seen walking around our small campus and saying "hello" to students, even if you walk passed her. She is also disrespectful and flippant when you come to talk to her about something you're working on for the school. Why? If it doesn't make her personally look good, she doesn't care. This was true for our school newspaper that hasn't existed for decades until a friend and I started it last year. This was very difficult in the beginning because the staff and the student body loved it, it replenished our missing school spirit! However when shown to the principal, she barely had any respect for it or interest in it. Her tune has changed, but this is because she was able to present it to the board. This is the kind of attitude/outlook she has for most of the school activities, events, etc. Our track team is a pretty good one, a team with heart and dedication. We WIN events, and this has been true for a few years. However, I have only seen the principal come to ONE of the meets, and it wasn't even at least the finals. As you can expect, this neglect affects the whole campus. The staff adopt this attitude as well and in turn, much of the student body learns to not care much. It is sad and discouraging, especially when there is so much forsaken potential."

    "There is rarely any middle ground with Blair teachers, either they're great or they're pretty bad. What it is most discouraging is the few that are great, are TRULY great teachers. They have engaging in lessons, they listen to their students so they can get a measure of student preparedness, they keep to a schedule but do not rush (part of it is their ability to understand and communicate the subject themselves so we can understand), and they genuinely want to help if you are struggling as long as you actually want to put in the work too. It's fantastic, it's what learning SHOULD be. However, most teachers at Blair do NOT do this. Most are completely disorganized, they literally come up with the lesson plan on the spot, and you can definitely tell. I am also in the rigorous IB Diploma program, and this way of "teaching" is pretty hurtful and discouraging. The teachers also seem to not actually know what they're saying when giving IB assignments. They use keywords like "multiple points of view," "global," "culture," "language," and "analyzation." If you ask them what these words mean in the context of the assignment, they can't explain it (they really don't know themselves). As an answer, they give you this reworded list of keywords without ever answering or hinting at "how does this even relate this assignment?" or "how should I do that?" If anything good can come from this, it would be that I have definitely learned to rely on myself and go above-and-beyond in self-responsibility. I must consistently doubt or question what the teacher says in class because it either isn't clear or I know from experience that they might say one thing but they will tell you something else if you ask them one on one (due dates for example, they change, a lot!). So I will say this, I most definitely am prepared for college and any difficult professors."

    "At first I didn't like the school but when I get to join different clubs. I enjoyed it. I get to meet new people and it's never boring because I got to do things that can help my school and the students. Being active at my school made my school year enjoyable and memorable."
