It is with great pride that I welcome you to the Baugo Community Schools. We have a rich tradition and history in the Baugo Community Schools of providing for the needs of each student as an individual. From early childhood to graduation day, our focus remains on student success. Our high expectations have led us to have the highest iRead scores in the area. We also have the fifth highest growth scores for math in the entire state, as measured on the ISTEP.
Our district motto reflects our educational ideals and the values our community embraces:
Small School Feel, World Class Education
The educational purposes of the Baugo Community Schools are detailed in our Strategic Plan. To summarize, the district continues to implement comprehensive and rigorous academic programs that develop critical thinking and problem solving skills in our students, by delivering relevant curricula and by providing student-centered learning experiences. In addition, programs continue to be developed to build a culture of professional learning that utilizes a data-driven assessment system and infuses our schools with technology to enhance instruction, assessment, and mastery of curriculum content.
First and foremost, the district is committed to addressing the needs of each individual learner. To fulfill that commitment, we insure that the academic, social, and emotional needs of each student are carefully monitored and adjustments and enhancements are provided as appropriate.
We continue to take great pride in the fact that the district puts the majority of its financial resources into classroom instruction, purchasing textbooks and supplies, providing busing and technology, and offering a wide range of extra-curricular and co-curricular programs for the students of the Baugo Community Schools. Many of our teachers, students, administrators, and programs continue to receive positive recognition on the local, state and national levels as being among the best. We continually strive for educational excellence.
The parents, students, staff, and stakeholders of Baugo and Jimtown take tremendous pride in our schools. The community works collaboratively to ensure the success of the curriculum, programs, and activities that provide the children of the Baugo Community Schools with an exceptional educational experience.
Welcome to our school community! We look forward to serving you!
-James DuBois, Superintendent, Baugo Community Schools
