I went to Blanchet some time ago. I have to agree to a certain extent with a couple of the reviewers. If you did not attend a Catholic grade school ie already have a base of friends attending Blanchet whom you had known for some time, weren't above average in sports or from, at least, an upper middle class family, it was very difficult to fit in socially. One positive was that Blanchet's academic standards served me well in college. I seemed more prepared than a lot of my college classmates for the amount of studying college demanded. However, I always felt that the faculty shoeboxed the students and once you were labeled as an average student, there was little you could do to improve your grades or class rank.
I went to this school and hated it! If you were not wealthy, athletic, or caucasian, forget being recognized for anything. There were more drugs in this school than the public schools of the time. The richer kids could afford it.
I was a student here and did not have a positive experience. If your child does not play sports, do not send them to this school. There is no support for children with learning disabilities as well as the fact that the school is not wheel chair friendly.
I am a student at Blanchet and absolutly love it. It was the best choice I made with out my parents telling me what they wanted. From my experience there, I believe Blanchet it one of the most spirited high schools in Seattle (Washington). The faculty and staff love to get the students involved. Blanchet was the right choice for me!
