Overall school is wonderful but, the principal is all about show and not very concerned about the children. School would be much better with a new principal.

Failed to discern learning disabilities in 2 of my kids- said it was 'behavorial problems' and 'poor parenting'. Now the 2 are in another school system which diagnosed SEVERE disabilities, came up with a short & long-term plan for both and provided all the support in & out of school that went beyond our wildest dreams. Now 1 child is skipping a grade (back to where he belongs) & the other was just named to the National Gifted Program. Both are now on the Honor Roll and can't wait to go to school in the mornings. Bridgton does have some good caring teachers, but the management made us feel like we were 'problems'

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.
