The Center Drive School is located in Orrington, Maine, 6 miles from the Brewer end of the Bangor/Brewer bridge. Our school has a student population of 397, and services students in our 4 year old program up to grade 8. We have a professional staff of 52, which includes 21 classroom teachers. This allows us an average student/ teacher ratio of 19-1. Our staff is committed to providing quality education for every student that passes through our doors. Please review our philosophy and shared vision on our web site. This is what we believe-it is our mission.

The school is truly a community school. Parents and community members are invested in the education of their students, and support the programs we are able to offer. The Orrington Recreation Committee uses the building for the children of the community, as well as the adults. You can visit the town website at

    Due to health issues that Mrs. Miller is experiencing, we are unfortunately cancelling our Wednesday evening concert and our Friday afternoon K-4 concert. 

    We will be cancelling before school practices until further notice. Sectionals during the school day will continue, students know what day they should bring their instruments. 

    Thank you, in advance, for your understanding with this difficult decision.

  • Wednesday Concert
    Dear Parents, students and friends;

    I realize that this is short notice but after many hours of thinking and rationalizing I find that it is in the best interest of everyone involved to move the Middle School Concert from December 6th to December 13th.  

    I am currently dealing with a medical situation that is taking longer to get under control than both the doctors and I anticipated.   I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

    The K-4 Christmas Concert will still be held on December 15, 2017 at 1:00 PM as originally scheduled.

    Thank you, in advance, for your understanding.
