What a great turn around this school has made in the last 2 years. With a new Principal at the helm, guiding teachers and students. Hiring teachers that will make a difference in the classroom and with the children. The Band Teacher is spectacular! We are blessed to have such a fine gifted teacher for our children, music is so important. I would love to see this school continue in the upward motion they are going through.

Overall, The Noble 6th/Berwick 5th is ok. I was very disappointed in the attitudes and lack of interest in parents involvement with their child s day to day. I am very active in my daughters schooling-as any good parent would be. I have found some of the responses I have gotten to be sad. At times some of the administrators are in convienced that I would even ask what is going on in my daughters day to day. I have even asked for some form of weekly communication from the teacher and the teachers response was ?I don t have time for that? My daughter watched him bid on ebay frequently enough to come home and tell me about it. However, OVERALL and ASIDE from that it is OK

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maine used the Maine Educational Assessment (MEA) to test students in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MEA 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.
