Welcome to RSU 26 

RSU 26 consists of 3 schools in the heart of beautiful downtown Orono, Maine, and has an enrollment of approximately 800 students. Orono is home to the University of Maine’s flagship campus is a thriving community located on the shores of the Stillwater and Penobscot Rivers.  Our community is diverse and made up of people who are passionate and committed to 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. Our faculty, staff, and administration work diligently to provide personalized and rewarding learning experiences for our students. We believe students’ success requires far more than content area readiness, and in response, we work hard to infuse the learning of important reasoning skills, work habits, and our core principles: respect, caring, service, responsibility, honesty, courage, and fairness into all student programs and activities.
