Previous poster is right about the Guidance department lacking because they 'know it all'. Otherwise, it is a wonderful school!

Loved having my child there. The teachers are great, the pricipal really cares, and the office staff is wonderful. I cannot say enough about the great teachers! Guidance (BW) is lacking because one of the counselors 'knows it all.' If you can deal with that, your children will have a great experience there.

This school is one of the highest rated in the entire state of Maine. No wonder why the Town of Gorham's students are ranked as some of the smartest in Maine according to the No Kid Left Behind criteria.

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.
