Wesley Elementary School
Wesley Elementary School is a small rural school in beautiful Washington County Maine. Our town is 114 residents strong. We typically have 5 to 10 students in grades Kindergarten thru 8th grade. Wesley Elementary School is a member of A.O.S. 96 located in Machias, one of 11 members that share services and the guidance of our superintendent Scott Porter. Under the Alternative Organizational Structure we are able to pool resources and services with the other towns to supress costs to the tax payers. Wesley Elementary is a very family and community oriented school and our students thrive under the very supportive nature of our community. Every student is treated as an individualand gets an individualized education built around their talents and abilities. Grade levels are simply markers, our students learn skills that cross over grade levels. Our school has a family atmosphere and one of our students once said it was like being home-schooled. Our students enjoy a beautiful playground and often get glimpses of wildlife -moose, deer-turkeys-foxes-eagles and bobcats in our idyllic natural setting.
Our 8th graders have the opportunity to choose attending either Machias Memorial High School in Machias or Washington Academy in East Machias. Many of our students have gone on to military careers, small business ownership and and have achieved distinction in Art.
