MSSM is an equal opportunity employer.
The Maine School of Science and Mathematics (MSSM) is an all-residential magnet high school located in Limestone, Maine.
MSSM serves students from all over the state of Maine, as well as youth from other states and international students. It is a high school for students in grades 9–12, and has a summer program for boys and girls from grades 5–9. A residential community committed to the pursuit of academic excellence, MSSM provides an extensive and challenging curriculum in science, mathematics, technology, and the arts and humanities.
After the announcement that Loring Air Force Base would be closed, funding from the Defense Reauthorization Bill provided for the creation of the Maine School of Science and Mathematics at the site of Limestone High School, which was poised to lose many of its students upon the closure of the base. The town’s elementary school was eventually converted into dormitories for the school, as they are located on the same property.
Chartered and funded by the Maine State Legislature, MSSM opened with a pioneer class in 1995. At that time, it was only the eleventh statewide residential magnet school specializing in mathematics and science education in the United States and the only school of its kind in New England. Both remain true today. It is the only magnet school currently operating in Maine. Since its founding the school continues to expand its outreach and programming for distance education to serve the entire state of Maine and beyond.
MSSM is a member of the National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools.
The Board of Trustees seeks a permanent Executive Director to begin July 1, 2018. This is an ideal opportunity for an energetic, principled leader who will embrace the school’s mission and strategic direction. Experience in a senior leadership position, a willingness to work closely with State government and outstanding personal qualities are required. An advanced degree is preferred.
