Message from the Principal

Welcome to James G. Blaine Academics Plus!  The purpose of this website is to inform you about the many wonderful experiences shared here at Blaine, as well as the policies and procedures that will help you and your scholar reach success.    


The staff is family oriented who are energetic, hard-working and creative. They work together as a team and are constantly sharing and learning. Parents are actively involved and can be seen in the schoolyard, classrooms, library and office. They stand behind all we do and their support is essential.


Blaine is a great place to learn because as soon as you walk through the doors our scholars know they are loved and ready to learn in a positive, polite, and productive atmosphere.  All staff spend a great deal of time getting to know each child to better meet their social and academic needs. Evidence of student work can be seen throughout the hallways and classrooms.


I hope this website will be a tool to help you maintain involvement in your child’s education.

Principal Gianeen Powell
