About Us
At Blake Elementary, we actively challenge, engage and support EVERY STUDENT in meaningful learning EVERY DAY, in order to reach each one’s full potential. We believe that students' sense of belonging comes first, and our staff strives to deliver a caring, supportive, and inclusive school community. We focus on instruction based on Kentucky's academic standards, and our teachers differentiate learning content to meet the individual needs of our students and their diverse learning styles. We meet students where they are; whether they need small group academic intervention to master grade-level standards, or they are ready to move beyond the standards in their grade. We offer Primary Talent Pool in grades K-3, and Advance Program in grades 4 and 5 for students who are identified as gifted and talented. Blake also offers a quality ESL program to support our English language learners, Exceptional Childhood Education services, and a Preschool program recognized by Kentucky as an All Stars Level 5 environment for learning. 

Every student in grades K-5 benefits from technology integration and deeper learning opportunities on Google Classroom using 1:1 Chromebooks and interactive flat panels in every classroom. Students learn many aspects of digital innovation weekly in our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Lab; using the engineering design process, along with learning the fundamentals of robotics, coding, video game design, digital art and graphic design, virtual reality, and digital music creation. Students also enhance their collaboration and communication skills by creating video messages using green screen technology.

Blake is very fortunate to be one of 20 JCPS schools participating in  The Compassionate Schools Project. Focusing on educating the whole child, the curriculum integrates mindfulness for stress management and self-control; contemplative movements, postures, and breathing for physical awareness and agility; nutritional knowledge for healthy eating; and social and emotional skills for effective interpersonal relationships. Students learn to cultivate focus, resilience, empathy, connection, and well-being as the basis for academic and personal success. In addition, all Blake students enjoy Art, Music, Library, and Physical Education weekly.
