My daughter loves this school, the teachers and principal are amazing. The front office staff leaves a little to be desired, but overall a wonderful environment for my daughter.

My child only went to Pre-K at Gilbert due to no Pre-K at Farrington. My child had such a great experience there. Mrs. Clements and Ms. Nancy are 'pure magic' with the children. When I observed their interaction with the children I noticed such a smooth transition into helping the children learn, regardless of the learning ability or manners of the child. They are so soothing but yet get the children excited about learning.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maine used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math and in grades 5 and 8 in writing. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maine. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
