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! 

At Deering, we believe students succeed when everyone is valued, challenged, and empowered.  For us, living up to these values means creating a strong and inclusive community, supporting all students in achieving at high levels, and promoting student voice and youth advocacy throughout our academic and co-curricular programs.

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!
