Gorham School Department Reviews

2 reviews
I loved most of the staff and teachers. I felt the course work prepared me well for college. I would like to see more safety measures in the school, especially in light of recent tragedy. I would also like to see the school set you up with teachers that are a better match to your personality and learning style, not repeat teachers that created a block to your learning potential.

We currently have two children in the Gorham school system. One in high school and one middle school. We are overall very pleased with their/our experience.
