  • Disciple and discipline have the same letters, but the teachers at Blair do not practice their duty with the small number of students that they have in the upper grades. The other reviews that you read here are true. The preschool and elementary program is adequate- middle school- a waste of your hard earned money and high school does not exist. Your child will require tutoring if he/she has no other training in the subjects. Parents have complained that their children's standardized test scores are dropping. Most of the staff and admin. are well meaning, but that won't help your kid. You would hope that you could find a school that supports and truly guides your child's academic and spiritual development, but sadly, you won't find it there.

  • My daughter attended Blair from Pre-K3 to Kindergarten. The teachers were excellent and so was the academic curriculum. However, I was extremely disappointed with the administration. My daughter received photo copies of all her work for two months into the school year instead of her books that were paid for in advance before the new school year began. Noting was done until I complained to administration and started questioning how tuition was being handled.

  • Teachers are dedicated and Administration is trying to nickle and dime parents to get money for a large tax debt. It is a real turn off in this economy. Photo copies instead of books at times, lack luster appearance and the academic curriculum is good for just the beginning grades.
