Cape Elizabeth Maine Schools

Schools and Educational Services

Cape Elizabeth Schools are organized into three schools located on one campus: Pond Cove Elementary School (K-4); Middle School (5-8); and High School (9-12). These schools are administered by the superintendent and a principal for each school.  Total enrollment is just under 1,700 students. Setting policy is the responsibility of an elected School Board composed of seven members serving three-year terms.

In the most recent report from US News & World Reports, Cape Elizabeth High School was ranked #471 nationally and #5 in the state of Maine.

The school budget accounts for approximately 68 percent of the town's total budget. With the emphasis on academics, more than 90 percent of graduates go on to post-secondary education. In addition to strong academic programs throughout the system, about 80 percent of middle and high school students participate in extra-curricular activities ranging from sports to debating to the arts.

Maine Educational Resources

Cape Elizabeth can reflect with pride upon its services to learners with disabilities. Each school provides a full range of support programs to assist any child identified as needing special education.
