Life in Maine
What do you think of when you hear “an urban campus”? Maine’s take on a city school might surprise you.
Portland, Maine’s historic West End neighborhood is filled with grand old homes and vibrant public housing, cafes and restaurants, parks, gardens, views of water, mountains, and more—all bounded by brick sidewalks, shaded by flowering trees, and steps from all the best cultural offerings the city has to offer.
The Waynflete campus is a safe, secure oasis where students can learn to appreciate and engage with their wider community. Early Childhood excursions to the playground on Taylor Street turn into service trips to local elementary schools and community gardens or afternoons at the Portland Art Museum, Portland Stage Company, and Portland Symphony Orchestra.
Waynflete families moving to Maine from out-of-state or abroad come here for many reasons, but they stay because life in Maine can be simpler, sweeter, and slower while still offering world-class restaurants, cultural amenities, recreational opportunities, and more.
