We measure our classrooms in acres instead of square feet.
Comprised of 80 acres of fields and woodland trails, we are located about three miles from Freeport harbor. Five state-of-the-art buildings are home to our early childhood programs and grades 1-8. Our teachers took an active role in designing the buildings to meet our program needs. Each day-lit classroom has hardwood floors, a sink, and direct access to the outdoors. We are committed to energy efficiency and environmental stewardship, with a vision for a campus that’s a model for a sustainable landscape.
Facilities include a dedicated handcraft building, a woodshop, and a community hall for student performances, assemblies, and school-wide gatherings, as well as events such as public talks, after-school programs, and weekend workshops.
We use our extensive campus for play and study, gardening and camping, cultural events and recreation. Maine Coast has competitive cross-country running and Nordic ski teams; our trails are active across all seasons.
