Exeter School District News

EXETER - Student enrollments generally fluctuate during the school year and official records are maintained and provide annual comparisons of information available on October 1st each year. September enrollments show some minor variations from the 2012-2013 school year.

Actual enrollment as of September 4, 2013 is as follows: Exeter High School - 1697; Cooperative Middle School – 1369; East Kingston Elementary School – 176; Main Street School, Exeter – 482; Lincoln Street School, Exeter – 542; Kensington Elementary School – 134; Newfields Elementary School – 135; Swasey Central School, Brentwood – 343; and Stratham Memorial School – 617. More detail about student enrollment, especially with regard to an annual comparison and/or trends, will be provided in October.

Cost Per Pupil by District - Each year, the State of New Hampshire receives information relative to the cost per pupil for the past school year. This actual cost includes all services provided to students. It encompasses staff salaries and benefits, books, supplies, facility upkeep and maintenance, and extracurricular activities. In order to maintain some level of consistency among school districts in the state, this figure does not include student transportation, food service, debt service, or out-of-district special education costs.

These numbers are subject to change after review by the New Hampshire Department of Education and the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration. Preliminary figures for 2012-2013 are as follows: Brentwood - $12,996.17; East Kingston - $14,079.42; Exeter - $14,555.75; Exeter Region Cooperative - $12,684.44; Kensington - $15,691.89; Newfields - $15,881.56; and Stratham - $14,129.83.

Upon entering the main lobby at East Kingston Elementary School (EKES), one immediately notices The Tree of Kindness that is decorated with leaves in honor of students who have performed random acts of kindness. Each Friday, during the school’s Morning Meeting, Principal Jim Eaves announces the weekly additions to the Tree of Kindness and those students receive a “Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible” sticker. The Tree of Kindness was created several years ago by classroom assistants and it continues to stand as a true symbol to visitors that the school is a caring community.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
