News From the Principal, Cynthia Loring

Mrs. Loring
     Welcome!  Presumpscot School is an Expeditionary Learning school that is located in the East Deering neighborhood of Portland, Maine. 
      Learning occurs through grade-level expeditions (in-depth studies of a topic or theme) that are aligned with the Common Core and Maine State Standards.
      The fundamental idea behind Expeditionary Learning is that students learn more by experiencing the world than by sitting in a classroom listening to a teacher talk about it.  During expeditions students are involved in in-depth investigations of a topic that engages them  in the world around them with authentic projects, fieldwork and service-learning projects.
     Another important quality of our school community is our Presumpscot Promise which focuses on the 6 Character Traits: 

Responsibility
Respect
Perseverance
Compassion
Collaboration 
Honesty
