    The Center for Engineering, Mathematics and Science (CEMS) is a specialty/magnet program at Blaine High School. It offers students an opportunity to explore engineering and provides them a strong foundation in math and science. CEMS is part of the Northwest Suburban Integration School District and, thus, is an option for students in seven school districts in the northwest metro area.

    • 90% work completion
