About

From our building structure to our playgrounds to our lunch programs, EECS is an environmentally progressive school, set in Maine's most urban city.
In our initiative to help children realize their potential as conscious, educated and compassionate thinkers and leaders, environmental responsibility and awareness is woven throughout everything we do.

Here are just some of the ways we make these issues a part of the EECS experience:

Architecture

Built for sustainability from the ground up by Stephen Blatt Architects

Community Garden

EECS’s outdoor classroom curriculum allows students to plant seeds, tend, and harvest their own food.

Solar Power

There are 18 solar panels on the roof at East End Community School that were installed in 2006.

East End's Core Beliefs

The students, staff, and families of East End Community School value diversity, equity, relationships, growth, and achievement.  Our community has high expectations for students and believes that students can grow to meet grade level standards and beyond. We believe that having consistent opportunities and access to strong grade level instruction, when students do most of the thinking and are deeply engaged, will grow student achievement and empower students, for the world.
