Students choose from a variety of diverse and engaging experiences, including opportunities for active, experiential, real-world learning.

Our Culture/Community: In RSU 5, students learn in joyful environments that are physically and emotionally safe. The school culture fosters well-being, respect, and curiosity while challenging students with clearly defined and rigorous expectations. Partnerships involving parents and community inspire and support enriched learning for all students.
