The School Committee of the Brewer, Maine Public Schools invites qualified candidates to apply for the position of Superintendent of Schools.  Dr. Daniel Lee will be retiring at the end of the academic year after serving the district as Superintendent for eight years.  Brewer is a suburban community located in Penobscot County in eastern Maine.

The pre-K-12 school department houses approximately 1,700 students in two well-maintained buildings:  the newly dedicated Brewer Community School (pre-K-8); and Brewer High School (grades 9-12).  The Brewer School Department is associated with the Community of Caring Program which encourages a positive and supportive atmosphere in which to work and learn.  For additional information about the school district please visit:


Brewer has a population of 9,500 and was incorporated in 1889.  The city has a rich history founded upon working men and women who understand the value of family and friends.  Brewer once was a center for brick manufacturing, shipbuilding and the lumber industry.  Today it is a modern community hosting numerous businesses.  It is also a community where residents enjoy access to nearby recreational areas including the beautiful city waterfront, parks and a performing arts center, as well as the academic, cultural and sports activities offered at the University of Maine.   

The school district is recognized for its consistent success in providing high-quality comprehensive education for all of its students.  The district is proud of the accomplishments of its students and the work of its outstanding faculty and staff.  Brewer Public Schools enjoys the strong support of parents and community.  The mission of the Brewer School Department is to challenge students to fully realize their potential by offering a high-quality educational experience.
