This is a great school in a small, close-knit community. The teachers and faculty are wonderful. Mr. Foster (the principle) in such a caring and hands-on administator. We just moved from the area and we certainly miss this school.

THis is the most outstanding school in the Kittery system. The leadership and staff are caring and centered on student needs. My daughter has made tremendous gains academically and I am very pleased with the academic program.
