When I graduated in 2005, I left with an excellent education because I worked at it. That being said, the teachers I had were thoughtful, evocative, helpful, and supportive. I did realize that if you did not take an honors or AP class in math, the quality of teaching was not stellar. However, there's a reason why we have a Maine Teacher of the Year in almost every department. AP and Honors classes offered in every major and most secondary subjects, excellent arts program, great sports program, and also the option to take vocational classes in a plethora of subjects in conjunction with your regular classes. The extracurricular activities are numerous, like multiple championships in Mock Trail including varsity, the former highest attendance Civil Rights club in the state of Maine, a well-traveled Foreign Languages club, a published Writing Club, and Maine State Champion drama club. Don't be afraid to send your kids here. Like all, you either sink or swim, but there's so many opportunities to flourish in this environment, and people to help you along the way.
