Welcome to Prescott Memorial School!
I would like to welcome everyone back to another great year of learning. I am excited to begin my eighth year at Prescott and privileged to be starting my first year as principal. I am honored to lead our outstanding team in the 2022-2023 school year!
Prescott Memorial School is a small, friendly school located in Washington, Maine, and has an enrollment of approximately one hundred students. We have a self-contained classroom at each grade level (K-6), and in addition, we provide art, physical education, music, library, and guidance for our students. We rotate our Art, P.E., and Music staff on trimester schedules as we share them with two other schools. The experienced and dedicated staff here work very hard as a team to make our school an inviting place to learn and maintain high expectations for all of our students. Our vision is to create lifelong learners who are productive members of society and our mission is to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and understanding needed for future success. We value the partnership we have with our families and know that in working together as a team we can meet the academic and social needs of our students. Our school-wide behavior system is about demonstrating “Respectful, Responsible, Ready and Safe” characteristics, and when you visit Prescott, you observe this in action.
One of our most recent accomplishments was placing among the top 30% of elementary schools in the state of Maine, making Prescott a 2022 U.S. News and World Report Best Elementary School!

We also won the 2019 WinterKids Winter Games competition, which awarded us $10,000!!
Our mascot is the Panda, and we are very Proud and Productive Pandas at Prescott!!
