I attended Falmouth High School many years ago for all 4 years. I still look back at it as the best time of my life. I was a new student and immediately accepted. There were no cliques, but some harmless grouping of students. Falmouth is one of the wealthiest towns in Maine, but also has large rural, more middle class component - and blends well. Academics were as high as you will find in any school anywhere, but tailored to every level. I currently live in Fairfax, VA, who has almost 25% of all the top high schools in the Nation and I'd rather my kids went to Falmouth - a much smaller, friendlier, progressive, out-of-box thinking school that really should be the model for what a school should be. Athletics super top notch too - div III championships abound. I made the Top 10% in my class at Falmouth (barely) and still attended an Ivy League college. They prepare you for SAT test well. Other students in my class went to Harvard, MIT, etc. Unless something has drastically changed, you just cannot beat this school. If you think Falmouth home prices are high, come to Fairfax, VA, and see what it costs to get into a top school system!

My children do not go this school yet, but I did tour it recently. I was so impressed with both the school staff and the curricular programming. The new STEM and Arts programs seem particularly exciting. The principals of both the middle and high school seem to be fully engaged with the schools, and I loved the general energy of the place.

Best school system In Maine. The post below has no idea. You are going to get cliques and not so well mannered kids everywhere but honestly this is one of the best schools ever. I attended college right out of High school and was so far ahead it was scary. The sports programs are number one and have been for many years. Each year Falmouth has several students going to Yale, Harvard, Brown etc. As I have stated this is one of the best schools in Maine!

The teachers are tired and teach the same curriculum over and over. Studies look sad and have no manners-cliques

The Falmouth school system is as good or better than most private school educational programs. I believe that this is due to the incredible teaching staff there as Falmouth is a destination, not a stepping stone, for many of its faculty.

The Falmouth school system is great! I've had 3 of my children enrolled since 1999 and 2 more on their way. Everyone's involved from siblings to grandparents. Social circles appear to be a little 'clicky' but what school isn't? Great neighborhoods from seaside to rural. This town has it all.

Falmouth High School is a great school with a firm foundation in the belief that all students have the ability and right to achieve. It utilizes both input and resources from the community and within the school to create a unique academic environment based on transparency. It provides its students with basis to become strong fundamental leaders in society, talented athletes, gifted artists, and most importantly an active participant in a community. The academic programs are amazing offering a variety of Honors and AP courses taught by talented and highly educated individuals whose mastery of their topics can be seconded by none. The strength of the History and English Departments are found seldom in similar communities, and the Math and Science Departments offer not only depth and clarity, but true interest for all students.

Best school system in Maine, no question. And, way ahead of their Greater Portland rivals in terms of meeting the needs of all learners. Best teachers, best coaches, best location, and top notch facilities.
