About Our School!

We are a Pre-Kindergarten-through-fifth-grade school of over 250 students, with twelve classrooms, two resource learning centers, Title One math and literacy classrooms and an Afterschool Program. SES has superb parental and community support. We are committed to excellence in education. Our achievement goals for students focus on literacy and math. We are a learning community dedicated to continuous progress.

We believe that all students can learn and be successful. Working together, school, families and the community, we strive to provide a quality education program for all students. Students are nurtured and taught in a supportive, caring environment. We strive to provide every opportunity for maximum student achievement and confidence. Student assessment data indicate that children are doing a great job of applying academic skills and processes in meaningful ways in order to meet or exceed expectations on local and state standards.

We believe that education is a cooperative effort among home, school and community. Thank you for your interest in Searsport Elementary School.

Our students have art, music including chorus for grades 4 & 5 and band for grade 5, library and P.E. weekly. Teachers and students have access to iPads and laptops, including 1:1 laptops for students grades 3 through 5. Our library has over 8,300 titles.
