Welcome to Yarmouth Schools
Yarmouth Schools serve just over 1500 students in kindergarten through Grade 12 in the beautiful New England town of Yarmouth, Maine. Located ten miles north of Portland, Maine’s largest city, and bordered to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, Yarmouth is one of the more picturesque, yet accessible, communities north of Boston. Performance indicators of every type point to the Yarmouth schools being among the finest in New England, both on the academic scale and in terms of our co-curricular and community service offerings. Highly qualified staff, motivated students, and engaged parents are our greatest resources, complemented by significant instructional technology, community investment in education, and well-maintained, updated facilities. Our mission, “Empowering all students to create fulfilling lives in a changing world” directs our work each day, and we strive to send our graduates into the world ready to learn, work, and contribute positively in a dynamic society. For more information about our schools, please browse our website, or call 207.846.5586.

A few notes about the start of the 2015-2016 school year can be found in this November update.

From our Superintendent

I am pleased to welcome you to our district website.  I hope you will find the information here to be helpful as you learn more about our schools and programs. 

From the first day of school in September, it is our intent to hit the ground running for another highly successful year, helping each student reach his or her potential in the classroom, on the stage, on the fields of play, and in the community. Our mission, “Empowering all students to create fulfilling lives in a changing world”, is a challenging task, and one we approach with an appropriate blend of demand, support, compassion, and fun. 

As we attempt to meet the needs of each student, we realize that our mission cannot be fully accomplished without the support of our students’ families and the larger community. Working together, we can provide the experiences and opportunities that will assist each student to demonstrate growth. I look forward to working with each of you to continue the tradition of excellence that has become synonymous with the Yarmouth School Department.
