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 http://orrington.govoffice.com.

  • Notice to parents of athletes regarding spring break "practices"
    ALL practices during school break are voluntary- There are no mandatory practices at Center Drive School when school is not in session. Some coaches choose to hold voluntary practices during this time and some do not. In no case will your athlete be penalized in any way for missing these practices-we understand that families leave on vacations during this time of year and we support you and your student athlete having time as a family. We also understand that transportation can be a problem for many families that stay in the area. So Please Remember that the practice times below are all Voluntary. Also please remember that Spring break is the time for our janitorial staff to do their best to get our fields in shape after a long, cold , snowy winter so many of these practices may have to be held inside.

    Baseball- No practices during spring break

    Softball Coach Phillips will be available to work with players from 5:30-7:00 Monday Through Friday

    Track Coach Cortis will be available on Wednesday and Thursday from 11:00 to 3:00- he asks that each athlete use common sense about practicing if it is raining on these days- In other words we cannot do much if it is raining: Athletes are  scheduled according to the events they compete in as follows:

    11:00-11:45 Shot
    11:45-12:30 Discus
    12:30-1:15 Sprints/Distance/ Hurdles

  • Notice to Parents of Baseball and Softball Players
    We would like to invite you to a brief meeting on Tuesday 4-29-14 at 6:00 PM. By now I am sure it is obvious to all of you that we are going out of our way to keep everyone who is interested in baseball or softball on the teams. We feel very strongly that this is the right thing for the program because of the dramatic drop off in numbers after this year (example in baseball we currently have 22 players on our roster and 14 of them are in Grade 8). We need to keep our younger players interested and involved in order to have sufficient numbers to have a viable program in the next few years. This is the purpose of the two "B" games that we have scheduled. We thank you for your understanding and support and we look forward to seeing you on the 29th. Meanwhile- have a great spring break.

  • Newly scheduled baseball/softball games
    We have an opportunity this year with a neighboring school to add two games to our existing schedule that will give our younger players an opportunity to see more playing time. This is similar to a "B" game situation. We are not implying that we have a "B" Team we are simply saying we want to take advantage of this opportunity. These games will not be included in the final league standings. The dates and locations for these games are as follows:
    Wednesday 5-7-14 Center Drive at Orono
    Monday 5-19 Orono at Center Drive
