Baxter Academy for Technology and Science, located in Portland, opened its doors in September 2013. The school’s students come from nearly 40 Maine school districts, spanning from Blue Hill to towns south of Kennebunk. Baxter’s curriculum is rooted in inquiry and project-based learning, and is connected across subjects. The school’s mission is to be a rigorous, college preparatory high school promoting student ownership of learning through a curriculum focused specifically on science, technology, engineering, and math. Its vision is to use a technology-rich, project-based learning approach to education at the secondary level. In 2017, Baxter Academy for Technology and Science was granted a 10-year renewal to its charter.
