Welcome to the Beals Elementary School!
Our school is located on a scenic island in Downeast Maine. This is the home of a large lobster-fishing fleet where you can watch fishermen hauling their traps and delivering the day's catch at waterside markets. Our community offers spectacular views of the mainland.

    Beals Elementary School is offering all assignments on Google Classroom for students in grades 5 through 8 who remain at home due to concerns over COVID-19. Assignments that are complete and turned in will receive a grade as usual.
    For students in Pre-K through grade 4, we are also offering work packets that parents can pick up at the school. If you have any questions over this, please call the school or email Mr. Crowley at

At Beals Elementary School, our goal is to create an environment that fosters a love of learning. Through collaboration, hard work, creativity, and fun, every student will achieve his or her full potential.

Our Core Beliefs and Values:

Student Assessment
The ­­­­­­­­Beals School Department utilizes all assessment data to help inform our practices at the district, school, classroom and individual levels for our students.  Although we encourage students and parents to participate fully in our assessment program, it is important to note that parents/guardians may opt their child out of state testing.  If you are interested in doing so, please reach out to your child's principal to make this request in writing.
