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
