    "My child is in the coveted Communication Arts Program, and yes, he is getting a rigorous education (meaning rigid and and intense). But what a competitive unpleasant place to be. I hear parents say they want their kids to get used to the real world. What real world is this? The real world I live in is full of pleasant people. The better I cooperate with my colleagues the better I do at work, and everyone in my world has learned that sleep, exercise, relationships and meaningful work is what makes a good life. Blair neither teachers nor encourages any of these real life skills. If your child will be fine anywhere (you know what I mean-- they make friends easily, are generally good students, like to join things and don't mind intense competition) they will like Blair. My child is thriving academically in the CAP program but has no sense of community. It's a really big school, but oddly there doesn't seem to be room for everyone; I know many kids who hated it so much they dropped out. The prior reviewer said that Blair was a lot like college. I guess for kids who are ready for college in 9th grade it's great."

    "This school is awesome, and I recommend it wholeheartedly as a recent alumni. The best part of the school is that it is sooo huge, since, you are bound to find some group to fit into. Everyone gets along very well, and the teachers are some of the best in the county. The Academy programs are great, as are the CAP and Magnet programs. It makes Blair more attractive to some of the best teachers out there, which at least on my part made my experience in high school excellent and prepared me for college. In fact, college doesnt seem too different from life at Blair, just bigger classes. Take advantage of the expertise of your teachers, and get them to help you get internships, which have really helped me in college, and in my career. The teachers have lots of connections, be nice to them!"

    "Way too large. It's the size of a community college - who wants that for their high school kid? On the plus side is the magnet program, which is great."
