Sheepscot Valley RSU 12
Somerville is a proud member of the schools below.
Following the reorganization of Maine schools in 2009, the Somerville primary school was closed, and Somerville became part of Sheepscot Valley Regional School Unit 12 (SVRSU 12). The Superintendent's office is now housed in the former Somerville school, at 665 Patricktown Rd, which also offers Pre-K and Adult Ed programs.
RSU 12 is partnering with Head Start to offer a free, high quality, Pre-K program to Somerville children who turn 4 by October 15. Bus transportation is provided. The program operates Mon-Fri throughout the school year. Meals are served and a short rest period will be included. All families are encouraged to apply. For more information or to receive an application, call 549-3261.

Windsor Elementary School, Windsor, Maine (RSU 12).
