School Notes

  • The Blake School is a unique institution where over the last forty years, traditional Montessori methods have been combined with the latest educational technology tools to create a hybrid learning environment that prepares your child for the technology-driven future. Additionally, our low student-teacher ratio allows us to know every student at our school and their parents by name. We believe in educating the whole child and view the freedom to develop without boundaries to be one of the greatest advantages of the Montessori system. By focusing on the academic, social and moral development of the child using an un-paralleled education-delivery model, The Blake School has become the hidden treasure among South Florida's private schools.
