Welcome from the Superintendent of Schools 

The mission of MSAD #53 is to provide all students an equal educational opportunity by offering age-appropriate, comprehensive, challenging programs that encourage all participants to maximize their potential and become well-rounded, socially responsible, critical thinkers and lifelong learners. In collaboration with all stakeholders we will strive to create a climate that fosters respect for diverse learning styles in a safe and caring environment in which cooperation and self-esteem are valued. 

We envision excellence in education for our community of learners, characterized by:
  • Students and teachers who are deeply engaged in learning; 
  • Authentic, integrated learning experiences;  
  • A rigorous and developmentally appropriate curriculum; 
  • Deep connections within our community of learners and beyond our schools’ walls to the larger community of our towns, state, nation, and world; 
  • Creative use of existing resources to their fullest potential.

 It was announced on June 1, 2015 that the USDA has granted Manson Park School and Vickery School their Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. This grant allows the children to always have an opportunity to have fresh fruit and/or vegetable, every day of the school year. The fruits and vegetables are purchased locally.

Dear MSAD 53 Family and Friends

I wanted to make sure everyone understands why we have put cones and barricades up around the school driveways and parking logs.  

It is very simple, SAFETY!

Several parents have asked me to do something to protect their children and our students.  We have had several close calls with cars pulling into parking lots extremely fast, not waiting for children to go through a crosswalk and almost get hit by speeding cars.

I know it's an inconvenience to walk into the school and get your children or have your children walk into the school, but please obey the signs and cones as we don't want any fatal accidents.  Please drop at the crosswalks.  

Thank you for understanding. 

Superintendent DePatsy
