Leroy H Smith School has a committed and enthusiastic staff. Parent volunteers are welcomed and encouraged and provide many enrichment programs for students. The facility is beautiful and well maintained, with a fully equipped playground and a walking trail and ballfields next door.

I've had kids in this school for 8 years and it's been a wonderful experience! I wouldn't have them at any other school district. Their Title I program for reading is outstanding.

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.
