The town needs to either close this school or fix it. It is an old old building. The only places to have any sort of program is upstairs or down stairs and there is no elevator or any other way to get there other than walk up the stairs. The teachers are excellent. They care about the children. The teachers and the children deserve a state of the art facility and since the town can't afford it and will not do any needed upgrades I give this school 2 stars. The town is evidently waiting for a lawsuit to get them to fix things.

The teachers in this school care so very much for the children that they want only the best for their education. My daughter could not write her name before she started kindergarten and two weeks after school started she could write her name perfectly.

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.
