I notice that the negative review that I gave the school was taken down. Why? The school, Temple Academy in Waterville Me. released a portion of my sons school records to the Bangor Daily News on 4-13-2010 "Dad's dispute" The school receives no federal funding, so it broke no laws (FERPA), but would you really want your child in a school that would place your child's privacy right at risk. We intrust our children to educators, but need to hold them to standards as a public school when it comes to the child's safety.

My brother went there and is the student the person below is referring to. Not only was a part of his private school record released in a news article but he was expelled in a student assembly with the high school student body present. He was dismissed with only one day notice and when I say he did nothing wrong, I mean he did nothing wrong! The school and some are very vindictive looking only to satisfy their agenda. NOT IMPRESSED

Im Amanda Adams and I have gone to Temple for 9 years, and I just graduated in 2003. I miss the school so much and I am, so happy that I go to be part of that school. I miss my family their and they told me that their will always be a special place for me their, I miss the teachers the people, the food, and the feeling of just being in a safe enviornment. When I have kids I will defenitly send them here.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
