South Windham Reviews

I love living in Windham, ME. We have lakes, are close to the ocean and to several ski areas. The town is very welcoming and my high school has many great teachers. Our sports teams have won several sportsmanship awards; especially my cross country team.

In the Winter of 2015 our high school received a bomb threat. Our police station was very calm and efficient in handling this threat. The school was evacuated safely and the police keep the community updated with their developments.
Windham is a great town to raise a family in!
