I love this school, they really highlight what your child's needs are and follow through with their strengths and help improve their weaknesses.

The teachers at this school are great, my son was able to get all the extra help he needed with reading, math and spelling. Everyone one of the teachers were very dedicated to helping him with whatever extra help he needed. He went from hating school to loving it in 1 year. If your child has speacial school needs this is the place to get it.

The teachers at the Coffin school are dedicated individuals who take the time to get to know the children and whatever special needs they have. We have a child that attended school there for two years and both teachers knew exactly what she needed as an individual to succeed. I am very impressed with their genuine concern for these kids and with their willingness to go the extra mile. I also have to say that the Coffin School has one of the best music programs I've seen. They should be very proud they have such a wonderful school environment.

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.
