I just moved two years ago and the school system is poor in Wiscasset. The kids have more days off and half days than they are in school. It is no wonder that my children are not learning anything, they are never there.

There are not many things for teens to do in this area.
Beautiful village but taxes and rentals are very expensive. Not very job friendly and not a lot to do .
