Woolwich Central School is truly one that cares about all 365 students. From the office staff, kitchen crew to specials, teachers and principal - you can feel it when you walk in the building. Students are involved in creative learning, show "The Woolwich Way" to each other and LIKE coming to school each day - which for older students is a wonderful thing. Great new school building shows parent and community investment in their local facilities.

Woolwich Central School is such a great school to go to. Every teacher cares about each student and their work habits. If you choose to do well you will absolutely succeed and even if you choose to fail the teachers will make sure to get you back on track and ready for high school. Because it is a small school in a small community though, every minor issue becomes a big deal and the older kids tend to get babied because it a k-8 school. A lot of the activities involve the whole school (and they are fun) The only bad part is the health policy. The last couple of years the sports programs are succeeding and there are many clubs to be involved in. Overall Woolwich Central is such a great school to send your kids to. (Trust me I went there since 1st grade)

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.
