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, Jonesport Elementary School, and Jonesport-Beals High School are offering "pooled testing" for our students for Covid-19. To find out how "pooled testing" works, click here to see a video that explains it. On Tuesdays, students at Jonesport-Beals High School are tested. On Wednesdays, students at Jonesport Elementary are tested. Students at Beals Elementary receive their "pooled testing" for Covid-19 on Fridays. Participation for Covid-19 Pooled Testing is voluntary. Please click on this link if you wish to sign up and have not already done so. The access code is G2E1MA.

                              Mission Statement
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.

ESEA Report Card -Elementary and Secondary Schools Act School Report Card 
The ­­­Elementary And Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that schools should be able to be compared to each other in terms of academic performance. Please click on the link below to be taken to the Maine Department of Education website to look at Beals Elementary School's ESEA Report Card.
