    "Howard W. Blake is a diverse school. I walked in that school freshmen year bias and walked out senior year open minded. I met all types of students who expressed their talents and passion for the arts. As a visual artist, I learned the disciplines and principles to fine arts, but most importantly I had the most loving photography teacher who saw potential in me. Becuase I had gifted art teachers, I was able to get a 5 on my AP art studio exam."

    "Blake High school is a school for students to get better at their art. I'm a student in the theatre program who will major in Costume Design and it is fantastic."

    "It's a wonderful school full of creative and motivated students that often gets underrated because of it's reputation of being in a bad neighborhood and full of lower income kids. The magnet school gives a very small school feel, generally in each department most people know each other. It's a good community that sadly has poor funding. Some teachers, like other schools just do the standard and they're fine but, there are a few teachers who are extraordinary and who are willing to go above and beyond for their students. In the magnet program, the various programs have their own activities than run into the afternoons so it feels like an extracurricular with those events or practices. Severely underrated school, I would give it five stars if the administration wasn't so difficult to get anything out of and the facilities weren't desperate for funding."

    "Most of the teachers are great, but the sanitation and administration needs some serious work. The guidance department is pretty much out to make sure you don't succeed in your life. They tell you to reconsider good university choices to go to the local community college. The bathrooms almost never work. Sometimes they ran out of food in the cafeteria during lunch. One of the worst things were the group huddles, which were completely pointless and sometimes controversial. I recommend going here if you're tough enough to put up with the crap thrown at you because the magnet programs are still pretty top notch and the academics are decent."

    "The teachers are wonderful. If you show you want to learn, they are always eager to offer support. The magnet teachers are great, too. You'll find a small, tight-knit family within whatever major you go to Blake for. I'd like to see the administration change. Guidance and Student Affairs offices are separate and neither one knows anything about the other. Also, making an appointment with your guidance counselor never goes through and they won't see you unless it's your lunch period. At lunch, it's always full of people trying to speak with their counselor. Hope that you never have an issue because it will never get solved through the office (but that's unlikely because there's always mess-ups). The teachers even agree that it's a hassle."
