Fiddlehead School of Arts & Sciences was approved February, 5th 2013 by the Maine Charter School Commission to become one of Maine’s first Charter Schools. The non-profit 501-c-3 organization will be governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Guided by core values and inspired by Reggio Emilia, child-centered and placed based approach to learning, the regional School opened and in 2016-2017 we will reach our full capacity with grades from Pre-K through Grade 5. Though children may come from anywhere in the state, the catchment area includes: Auburn, Casco, Cumberland, Gray, New Gloucester, North Yarmouth, Minot, Poland, Pownal, Raymond, and Windham.
The school provides for the foundational needs for growing children in a community where children, teachers, and families learn together in a nurturing environment. Fiddlehead School will honor children’s curiosities, interests and unique capabilities to encourage learning at a high level, unfolding each child’s fullest potential.
Fiddlehead expects to be nothing less than the finest model of community learning – an acknowledged leader that awakens the curiosity within children who want to learn, explore and discover the arts and sciences.
