Regional School Unit No. 51 (MSAD 51) Reviews
The math department is terrible, they don't teach and this is after 3 years in the High school. The Middle school was good but the overpriced budget MSAD51 gets is crazy! they only cater to performing arts where around 5% of the school actually goes to and is in. The administration does not want to pay teachers overtime for detention so they hand out out of school suspensions like candy at a parade which makes it hard for their students to get into colleges. Also, if you do not conform to their ideas and political beliefs you best believe they wont be silent about it-- and you can even get in trouble for it.
At MSAD 51, community matters. The staff and faculty make sure that students have a positive experience. Teachers are inviting and make sure the classroom is a safe space. There are some improvements that could be made over time, however, over all a great district.
I grew up in the district, and I found that the community is very nurturing. The academics are incredible as you go through the schools. Greely offers many opportunities within the district for sports and clubs, which definitely improve any child's success socially as well as academically in many cases. Overall, I loved the district and I appreciate all that I learned there.
