I had work with emblaze but as a school paraprofessional. I love how they makes students and teachers like family. From when kids and teachers are singing happy birthday to you to us doing spelling bee or poetry. This school is my favorite place to work. I miss working with them. One two three family !!! Four five six Emblaze !!!

I love this school! All the teachers have nice touching contacts with each and every parent, meaning the school is strict yet an excellent school. My son has gradually gotten a lot better in this school and so did his attitude. I would highly recommend sending your child here, you won’t regret it.
