  • Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!

    Dear Parents and Guardians of Searsport Elementary School Students:

    On behalf of the dedicated and passionate staff at Searsport Elementary, I am excited to welcome everyone to the 2017-2018 school year!  Our Custodial and Maintenance staff have been working hard all summer to prepare our building and grounds for a fresh start.  The staff are excited to fill their classrooms with students again!  

    Open House:  We would like to invite students and families to our SES Open House on Wednesday, August 30 from 4:30pm - 5:30pm.  This is a time for students to see their new classrooms, classmates, and teachers.  We hope to see many faces stopping in for a visit!

    Parking Lot Construction Project:  Many have noticed that our Front Parking Lot Project is underway and moving fast.  The paving company’s goal is to complete the project on the same night of the PreK -5 Open house, Tuesday, August 30 from 4:30pm - 5pm.  The surface will not be ready for use until after Labor Day weekend.  So, it is very important to be aware of the change in traffic flow and any congestion that may arise due to ensure the safety of all.  Together we can get through the first two days of school!


    Welcome Pre K:  Our building is now a PreK - 5th grade school!  Our Head Start classrooms will be located in the Cape Of Dreams wing, across from our 2nd graders.  It is exciting to be able to have our 4 year olds begin their academic journey within the walls of SES.   

    Arrival & Dismissal:  During normal school days, students may be dropped off between 7:45am - 7:55am at which time proper student supervision occurs.  This is to ensure safety and to maintain high attendance marks.  Upon arriving, students follow their classroom procedures for breakfast.  Attendance is promptly taken at 8:00am.  

    *If your student has a change in his/her normal dismissal destination, please contact the office by sending in a signed note with your student or calling by 11:00am.     

    Teamwork:  We at Searsport Elementary School are proud to be working in partnership with the families of our students.  Our teamwork and collaboration will empower our students for success.  Let’s all work hard to keep the lines of communication open.  After all, we are all in it for the students.


    Mr. Clement, Principal

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.

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 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. Click on our automated catalog to see what the library has to offer. 

We have a full-time guidance counselor in the building, 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.
