I was a Portland Public School employee for twenty years and in those years I had exposure to all schools (as I worked in Central Office). There are many talented and gifted teachers and staff in the entire school system.....yet I can say without hesitation I HOLD NUMEROUS MEMORIES OF OUTSTANDING EFFORTS AND OUTCOMES BY THE STAFF AND STUDENTS OF CASCO BAY HIGH SCHOOL. I so admire the strength, focus and energy CBHS has manifested since its inception. Bravo!
