Our curriculum, instructional methods, and assessment tools are built upon Maine's system of standards for student learning.  To read more about many of these standards, please visit our standards page.

We're working to design a proficiency-based learning system in which:
  • All students will be better prepared for college, career, and civic readiness

  • All students will connect to, engage in, and develop a passion for learning

  • All students can learn and show what they know in a variety of ways and paces(multiple pathways)

  • Students, teachers, and families have a clear understanding of where a student’s learning is, and where it is headed  (Here is our grading philosophy.)
