NEASC Update:

The visiting team has completed the BHS NEASC report, which includes an overview for each committee, commendations and recommendations for moving forward. Just a reminder that we will hear back in October regarding our NEASC status because the official review of the document will take place during the NEASC fall meeting.  Click for the NEASC report.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the NEASC accreditation process. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Shanna Crofton or Jim Flanagan at BHS.

We would like to hear from YOU, the Brunswick community!

A Superintendent’s advisory committee has been researching innovative K-12 academic programs in Maine and across the country, and we would like to know what you think about some of the ideas we have found. Are there programs that would work well in Brunswick? Are there existing programs in Brunswick that should be expanded? This survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete, and we would really appreciate your input.

Thanks in advance for your participation!
