My son and I moved to the area a year ago and compared to his school he used to go to I give Caribou a thumbs down. He was a straight A student and was complimented by all his teachers and now he is low B's and C's and his teachers have nothing good to say. He also was put into a French class with no prior French when all the children had french since they started school. When I ask the teachers how he is doing they say he is doing well but when the report cards come home there are comments all through it that say different. Frustrated mother

The Caribou school system makes a sincere effort, but small student body size, 'no child left behind,' and limited staff result in not serving its more gifted students to their potential.

Hello! I am an eighth grader at Caribou Middle school for 2007-08. I love all my teachers. They are so helpful, and they make you feel good about yourself.

I love this school! I'm an eighth grader at 2007-08. Teachers here are helpful and kind. At least, mine are. There is one special teacher who changed my life--forever. I'm soooooo lucky to go to school in this educational environment!

Not enough opportunities for parent involvemet. Good Leadership. Some kind teachers, but some who are not so understanding. A big transistion for fifth graders. Kids are pushed to grow up too fast by being a part of a 5-8 school. A big difference between fifth graders and eighth graders.

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.
