News and Events

  • Finishing up the Year
    Hello to Searsport Elementary School Families:

    Our students and faculty have been "wowed" by our latest school event, that of the Elementary Impressions art show, facilitated by Tracy Colby, Ross Cottrell, and Heather Nadeau, SES parents.
    Through their diligence and hard work, they fashioned a memorable print-making experience for all of us to enjoy, now on exhibit in our school's "Cape of Dreams". Mrs. Nadeau painstakingly photographed each student and staff member as they created his/her individual print; on Thursday, June 5th, we were treated to a slide show of us sharing this wonderful event. Students, staff, and family members then walked through the gallery to view our collective exhibit.

    Thank you very much for all your work, to provide us with such a rich experience. If you missed the event, a link to the WABI news coverage may be found on our web-site soon.

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.
