The Dedham School enjoys a fine reputation for educating students in a caring, supportive manner. School climate is something of which we are very proud. We have talented staff and a wide range of educational programming. With a student population of 180 students Pre-K-8, class sizes are small. We try to provide individual attention for all our students. We have approximately 100 high school students at various area high schools.

The Dedham community is special to me. Not only have I been at this school going on 38 years as an educator, I attended Dedham School from Kindergarten to grade four before moving to Bangor. I moved back to the community in 1977; two years after starting my teaching career here at the Dedham School. I began as a Title I tutor, taught Kindergarten through grade three and served as the Assistant Principal before assuming the position of Principal in 2003. As the 2014 - 2015 school year begins I am beginning my twelfth year as Principal of Dedham School. I feel I know the school and community well and believe we have the best school, staff and students in the state. I am excited about beginning another school year. I want to assure you we strive to do what is best for students and put them first in the decisions we make. I look forward to working with the staff, student, parents and the community throughout the upcoming school year.
