MSAD #58 is a small, rural school district in the Western Mountains of Maine and includes the towns of Phillips, Avon, Kingfield, and Strong. We have two PreK-4 elementary schools, a 5-8 Middle school and one high school serving students in grades 9-12. Our current enrollment is approximately 665 students with approx. 183 of the students residing outside of the district. The non-resident students are from the Unorganized Territories of Madrid, Salem, and Freeman Townships; and the tuitioning towns of Eustis, Carrabassett Valley, Highland Plantation, and Coplin Plantation. One of our largest challenges is geography as our district covers over 500 square miles and encompasses several non-district towns and unorganized territories.
