i think this is a wonderful school

Teacher's are fantastic--always trying their best to help their students succeed. Very friendly, inviting environment to student-teach in. Love this school.


Posted August 25, 2006

Test scores speak for themselves, this school and many others in the area need to work on the academic programs and how the teachers teach these programs. The teachers do not get paid enough and it shows. My son was bullied often and when I confronted the principle she didn't seem concerned for my sons safety at all. Teachers are nice but don't have enough time to work with everyone because they are to busy dealing with the troubled children.

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.
