My children attended this school until recently. I am now homeschooling them because the school is failing my children. The school is so far behind other schools in teaching children what they need to know. The test scores are horrible in this school. I do not recommend this school or any school in this district.

My daughter attends this school. The teachers and principal are great - an experienced staff of caring people. Unfortunately, the school lacks the leadership at the upper levels of administration and school board oversight to provide for the opportunities that students need. The building is in disrepair, the materials old and outdated, and supplies skimply furnished to the classrooms. Meanwhile, higher level administrators squander funds on needless stipends and pet projects and an ineffective school board is mislead and bullied. Fortunately area businesses have stepped up to put in a playground as extras such as this and afterschool programming are not even on the radar here. As a professional person who cares about education, I find there is no outlet to make improvements as the superintendent and school board seem oblivious that our failing test scores and lack of opportunities are an issue. I plan to move out of this district.

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.
