Scarborough Maine Real Estate

Schools and Educational Services

Scarborough's school system is housed in modern facilities at strategic locations throughout the community. Its educational programs are student centered with choice being an essential part of the school system's philosophy. At the primary, intermediate and middle school phases, children and parents have a choice of either graded or three-year multi-age educational programs. Scarborough High School offers a diverse curriculum with a range of options including advanced placement courses and state of the art vocational education at two regional vocational/technical schools.

In November 2011, a referendum was approved to build a new Wentworth Intermediate School. Construction began in the summer of 2012.

Maine Educational ResourcesThe Scarborough school system's commitment to the visual and performing arts is as impressive as its athletic programs. Student programs include choral and band in grades five through twelve, a wide range of visual art opportunities culminating with a week long art show for the public in the spring of each year and several theater productions at the high school.

Academic success includes 90% of the seniors going on to post secondary education, a designation by the Portland Press Herald that Scarborough High School is one of the top twenty high schools in the state as measured by its performance on the Maine Educational Assessment, and numerous Academic Decathlon and speech and debate state championships.
