Welcome to Regional School Unit 50
Regional School Unit #50 is comprised of Katahdin Elementary School (PK-6), Katahdin Middle/ High School (7-12), and Southern Aroostook Community Schools (PK-12). Our schools are committed to developing a learner-centered experience for our students in a safe educational environment. Our district is currently aligning curriculum and instructional strategies to ensure students across the RSU will have a similar educational experience, while striving to attain our vision of “Challenging, educating and equipping all for productive global citizenship.” We currently serve approximately 750 students and offer adult education programming as well.
The RSU was formed in July 2011 and encompasses the former SAD 25 and CSD 9 school districts. The district lies in Northern Penobscot and Southern Aroostook Counties and is approximately 460 square miles, making it one of the largest geographic school regions in Maine. The RSU serves the twelve communities of Crystal, Dyer Brook, Hersey, Island Falls, Merrill, Moro Plantation, Mt. Chase, Oakfield, Patten, Sherman, Smyrna, and Stacyville.
The area is an ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts. Natural features of the region include: the North entrance of Baxter State Park, scenic views of Mt. Katahdin, abundance of wildlife, and access to many lakes and ponds. This region can be easily accessed by I-95 and is centrally located between two service areas. 
We appreciate you considering our region as a location to educate children and to experience the incredible opportunities our region offers.
