The Jacket


The Jacket Online is Blake High School’s official site for on and off campus news, sports and entertainment. The Jacket’s staff is dedicated to giving a voice to the voiceless, reporting real news, about real people. Our goal is to keep you updated with current and upcoming events going on in school and in the community.

The 2017-2018 school year will be a very busy year for the staff.  We produce and publish on, we also produce and publish the 2018 yearbook The Performer. We will be attending the statewide Florida Scholastic Press Association Convention in Orlando.

The Jacket is committed to working hard in bringing the best in news and information to all H.W.B. stakeholders.
