We are a family of 4 living in Scarborough, ME and looking to move to Yarmouth, ME (Cousins Island). I get that commute will be a bit more but wanted to get opinions on

1. Schools - One kid in fifth now and other going to Kindergarten Sept 2016. Opinions on after school programs in middle school and general feel of teachers in Yarmouth school system.
2. Shopping - general grocery.
3. Community - We are Asians and want to know if this area is a good option to move.

Reason from moving away from Scarborough is the school system... not really impressed as most of the after school programs have either been cancelled or not interesting enough.Also the student teacher ration 21:1.

Thank you.

Hi there,

I do not know a lot about Yarmouth but I do know the real estate market. If I can be of assistance when you are ready to make the move please feel free to contact me. I'd love to help and completely understand wanting to have your kids in a good school system. I do know that Falmouth has an a+ school system!
