About Deering High School

DHS Asia Society Logo
About Deering High School Deering High School is the most diverse high school in the State of Maine and north of Boston. Our students speak over fifty home languages and come from more than thirty countries on five different continents. We are the only high school in the state to offer Mandarin, Arabic, French and Spanish. Committed to our over one-hundred years of tradition, we are still that beautiful high school on Stevens Avenue that continues to build our community and proudly serve our city! 

We are the first school in New England to be a member of the International Studies Schools Network (ISSN), a network of thirty-five schools across the country. Our mission is to prepare our students for college/career and to be global citizens who investigate the world, recognize perspectives, communicate ideas and take action. 

Deering High School is committed to creating a student-centered and globally-focused environment for teaching and learning, both in and out of the classroom. With over fifteen Advanced Placement courses, multiple dual college enrollment opportunities, many extracurricular clubs and activities, and abundant Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELOs) and activities to choose from, we invite every student to find their strength and their passion in order to make their unique contribution to this school community, the State of Maine, the U.S. and our global community!
