Principal is ineffective and lacks an understanding of middle schools and middle school children. Has some excellent teachers who have high standards and provide outstanding educational opportunities. As is the case with many schools there are some teachers who are only interested in being friends with the students rather that actually providing an education, but they are limited. With different leadership this could be an exceptional school.

No technology in the classrooms. Teachers follow cookie cutter lesson plans. Use of 'Everyday Math' causes strain on both students and parents.

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.
