Haha that comment up there is such a lie. Blazer is a very good high school. I currently attend there and plan on going there until I graduate. All the teachers are nice, and very respectful. If you ask with a problem they help you, even if it's personal. Blazers faculty really cares about the students well being and are trying to make sure every single student is treated correctly and graduate. I recommend attending blazer. It's great. Plus they remodeled the campus and it looms awesome now! That shows they care about their students.

Blazer is not a highly thought of high school. I currently attend and plan to transfer this summer. Some of the teachers sleep during class and will not help when you ask. There are many drinkers and drug addicts that attend. The environment is terrible, brutal fights daily and cursing comes out of alot of students and some teachers mouths. I do not reccomend going to Paul G. Blazer (Ashland) High School!
