Both my kids went to this school. Their teachers treated them with respect and challenged them. Both were well-prepared for high school.

We moved to Maine last summer, and heard many great things about TES. We're very happy that our sons attend this school.

I am writing in agreement to the review about notices of schools events being given out, especially with those students that have split visitations with parents. This occurs frequently to the parents in these situations with younger children.

I think that this school was a very good school for my children to have attended.I found it very pleasing when she and he went to that school. It met all of my childs needs. they both walked out of that school with a well packed in brain of school material ready for high school at Mount Dessert Island High School! So for that, thank you TES!

I think the teachers at Trenton really do care about their kids. Unfortunately communication between the school and home is not great. Most of the time we get notices about field trips and school activities the day before the event. It would also be great if the teachers who use the web to list student's homework would actually update the site regularly. My child had homework and I had no way to make sure that all of it was completed.
