Our son is the one who actually chose to apply for the music program at Blake, as my wife and I knew very little about the school. After talking to several people, most in the music field, we agreed with our son. He is in both the marching band and the symphony band, and is loving every minute of it. Since he wants to be more into the writing and producing area of music, he is taking music theory. He is only a freshman, but he has learned a lot in that short period. My wife and I are band booster members and have a great time working with the kids, and the other parents as well. We believe that the education our son is receiving at Blake High school is going to help him get into a quality college program, and also has helped him meet some new friends that are some fine young people. I would strongly recommend Blake High school to anyone.
