We have a great school, with lots of extras considering we are so small. Dedicated staff, hard working students, community support. SAT scores are used as the state test - very difficult!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maine used the Maine High School Assessment (MHSA) to test students in grade 11 in critical reading, math, writing and science. The results reported show how well students are mastering state standards, specific skills defined by the state of Maine. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
