RSU 26: About Us

Orono is a beautiful and thriving community located on the shores of the beautiful Stillwater and Penobscot Rivers. It is home to the University of Maine‘s flagship campus, numerous successful businesses, a network of panoramic walking trails and preserves, and a strong Parks and Recreation Department.

RSU #26 serves approximately 800 students in Pre-K through high school. Our students hail from Orono and the surrounding region. Asa C. Adams School, Orono Middle School and Orono High School are located on a single campus in the heart of downtown ORONO, MAINE. Our community is diverse and made up of proud and thrifty Mainers who are passionate about education and providing the very best for their young people.

In our schools we take the work of preparing young people to be successful in a rapidly changing world very seriously. Thus, our faculty and staff work diligently to provide personalized and rewarding learning experiences for our young people.  We believe students’ success requires far more than mere academic readiness, and in response we work hard to infuse the learning of important reasoning skills and our Orono Schools’ core principles: respect, caring, service, responsibility, honesty, courage, and fairness into all of our student programs and activities.
