Back in Fall of 2001, my daughter Casey was welcomed with open arms By the MMC on Charles St. The difficulties she had with day to day life and her social skills made things a bit more difficult for us all here in her home environment. After she spent 10 months with the Teachers and Clinicians, working to improve the aggressive moods and learning skills, we found that with the school in conjunction, teaching us ABA skills, that Casey's life was improving almost daily! THey helped us transition her back into public schools here, though new scenarios upset her, we worked through them as a unit and the MMC Team guiding Casey back on track. in 2009, she was introduced to the Dixfield school system and is excelling there! Her social skills, her classwork, and follow through has been amazing. Just one class, just her math class is in the classroom with Lucy Kochis, and she is still growing in leaps and bounds there. Her lowest grade throughout the past 3 years, has been a mid 80! She has been in plays, but the biggest leap was this December, she took part in a play at 49 Franklin St. in Rumford, and covered where tech had minor mistakes. She soared thru it and was glowing!

They don't work well with blended families, lots of blame tossing when children do not progress as well as the should. Placing unfounded blame accusations on a child's school record and creating problems between parents. Noncustodial, unrelated persons have more say than legal family members if they choose to like them more. Overall I believe they have good intentions but need to work on supporting blended families rather than tearing them apart. It never helps the child to have parents that work well together as a team pitted against each other. The attitudes of the staff dealing with parents (drop off and pick up) need work. And if a child is being dropped off and picked up late almost daily they should contact both parents rather than letting that go on as they did. I hope they improve for the sake of future students and parents but I chose to remove my child to prevent future hostilities. My child was blessed to have four caring parents and we all played an important role for him. A school should encourage that rather than tear it apart.. In the end it was them who was taken out of the equation.

Poland Regional H.S. tells the parents that they are preparing the students for their career- from day one. They talk about the "Round Table" teams, but this is a laugh. The teachers do not follow through with their students and then at the last minute they are running around telling their Round Table students that they need stuff. PRHS does NOT want parents involoved because then the parents would see how disorganized they are.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
