    I need your opinions...My family and I might be moving to southern Maine and i am researching elementary schools. There is lots of information on the web about how the schools rank in test scores, etc. but i want to hear from the parents who send their kids to these schools. What school would you recommend? Which would you not? and why? To me, a strong academic program is a given, but just as important is the schools emphasis on the arts programs, physical education and even it's nutritional program in the lunch room. I would appreciate any advice, opinions or suggestions you can offer.

    I have family that attends the Windham school district and friends with children that are in the Gorham school district. I definitely recommend the Gorham school district. Windham seems to be putting more focus on athletics and less on the arts lately. Also, Windham seems a bit overcrowded.

    Thanks - and it sounds like Gorham is building a new elementary school too?
