"I was hoping some one might be able to tell us which are the best school districts from the teachers point of view. Which ones have the smaller class sizes, better administration, better parents etc."

All the districts in Greater Portland are co-extensive with the municipal government boundaries.

Portland has the smallest class sizes and among the highest pay, for senior teachers.

Wealthy suburbs are more homogeneous, those include Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough, Gorham, Cumberland, Windham, Yarmouth, Freeport, Falmouth.

In between, South Portland and Westbrook.

Most of them have web sites, I think. There are also private schools of good quality.
