About Our School!
Searsport Elementary School was built in 1991. If you visit our school you will see it reflects our coastal heritage. Murals, paintings, and sculpture depict the ocean, and tiles on the outside of the school are of ocean animals. We currently have approximately 200 students in grades K-5.
Our students have art, music including chorus for grades 4 & 5 and band for grade 5, library and P.E. weekly. Teachers have access to 4 portable laptop carts. Our library has over 8,300 titles. Click on our automated catalog to see what the library has to offer.
We have a guidance counselor (who is shared with the two other elementary schools in our district) in the building two days a week, who provides classroom, small group, and individual guidance. Our guidance program works to support the academic needs and meet the emotional needs of our students.
On the second floor of the library is the Waldo Peirce Art Gallery displaying 13 works of Waldo Peirce. Peirce was a world known artist who is exhibited in major museums in the United States and Europe. The paintings were donated in 1952 to the Central Elementary School to thank Searsport for welcoming his children when the family moved here. When Searsport Elementary School was opened the paintings were moved to the upstairs of the library and the Waldo Peirce Art Gallery was established.
