The Mission of the Blake Middle School is to inspire enthusiasm for learning and to nourish each adolescent’s intellectual and emotional development in a supportive and diverse community grounded in the values of honesty, acceptance, respect, responsibility, and trust. Our program and strong partnership among students, parents, and faculty will empower our middle schoolers to become well-rounded, lifelong learners who are able to see through multiple lenses in order to understand and improve their world.
The Blake Middle School promotes an atmosphere dedicated to learning and to allowing intellectual curiosity to flourish. It believes that the environment must be safe, secure and caring for all students and staff. It further believes that such an environment promotes learning and good citizenship. As a community, we in the Middle School must work together to create that environment and believe the following values to be essential:
Honesty — We do our own work unless instructed otherwise on homework, projects and exams. We are honest in our interactions with others.
Acceptance of Others — We are accepting of others and appreciate the differences among us. We include and value others.
Respect — We are respectful to staff and students and recognize the need to respect authority and the role of the faculty. We respect our environment and facilities.
Responsibility — We are responsible to ourselves, one another, the School and the community.
Trust — We work to establish and maintain a high level of trust within the School community.
