Eddington School is awesome. Teachers, staff and parents are a team,a village making sure everything is done right by our children. And they have fun too. Lots of activities for the families, not just the kids. GREAT school

VERY caring staff! Eddington School has made all the difference for our two sons with special needs (autism and Asperger syndrome). Dedicated and creative teachers and principal. We really couldn't be happier.

Eddington school seems to be a wonderful environment for learning just based on what we have observed with our friends children and our own grandchildren.

Kids can't wait to go every morning. Wonderful teachers and caring students. Always ready to help. Wonderful school. The only students that have any problems, have less than active parenting.

Bad school system. Principal, teachers and other staff have own agenda. Principal is a bulley.


Posted March 5, 2012

Principal is a bully. He picks on his students and teachers/staff alow this to happen.


Posted March 5, 2012

Would not send my child to this school. Pure horror story. Principal is a bully, superintendent is friends with principal, teachers and staff uncaring.

Eddington School is a good school. Academically, they are working hard to improve. My girls are doing okay and I work with them at home. The school has a good music and art program. It is an elementary school preK to 4. For sports the kids get involved in the recreational program. The school has the Parents Teachers and Friends group that meets and are very involved in the school activities. Parents are encouraged to help out anytime.

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.
