We start small. At Catharine Blaine we strive to limit our four kindergarten classes to 20 students each, providing an outstanding teacher/student ratio to launch your child’s academic career. The small class size pays off, too. Click here for a snapshot of Blaine's 2010-11 performance as measured by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI.) Catharine Blaine also offers the only middle school program in Magnolia. Our K?8 structure allows us to nurture and support our students in a personal, in-depth way for nine years. Continuity in curriculum, facilities, staff members and programs means a seamless transition from elementary school to middle school at an important point in your child’s academic career. It is a unique opportunity to prepare for the rigors of high school by adjusting to a set of teachers and changing classrooms throughout the day in a familiar, supportive environment. Catharine Blaine is the kind of school where the principal knows every student by name, from kindergarten through promotion onto high school.
