Fort Kent Community High School Reviews

Fort Kent Community High School Values a family aspect as advisors talk to individual students about how they are doing each week, and students feel as though teachers are fairly trustworthy. However, in my search for colleges my grades, and therefor GPA has suffered due to the new Proficiency-Based Grading that the school has started. Because of this, I find myself suffering as I apply to competitive programs and scholarships as my grades do not reflect who I am as a student. I would like to see this change in the future, and to help this happen I am currently doing my Senior Project on the possible negative effects of PBG that I will present to the school board at the end of the school year.

Our new Principal, Vice Principal and Superintendent are turning our school around. Mindsets are changing. Future is looking good!
At Fort Kent Community High School, there is something for everyone. The sports teams are very competitive, with nearly all of them being in the playoffs this year. The teachers are very interactive and will come in early and stay late for their students. Every year there is a week for a winter carnival, this is extremely important as it increases school pride.
