MSAD #24 / RSU #88 welcomes all students, parents and staff back to a new school year. A new school year presents opportunities for new beginnings, new classes, new faces, new learning.

Starting a new school year gives us the opportunity to make new plans, design new strategies, and implement new ideas.

We are proud of what we achieve at MSAD #24 / RSU #88, in our classrooms, in our offices, and on our playing fields and stages. Our program is what it is because of a staff of dedicated professionals with a common goal - to do what is best for all our students.

Maine School Administrative District No. 24 / Regional School Unit #88 serves the primary and secondary educational needs of Van Buren, Hamlin and Cyr Plantation.

Please feel free at any time to come visit or call with any questions or concerns.
