About Our School!

We are a Pre-Kindergarten-through-fifth-grade school of over 230 students, with twelve classrooms, four resource learning centers, Title One math and literacy classrooms and a 21st Century 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.
