About BSD

Welcome to our website. On it you will find general material for the public, such as meeting agendas and dates, but if you are a parent of a Brewer student, you can also access your child’s grades and even the status of their lunch account. If there is anything you need that you don’t find here, please feel free to contact us and we’ll do our best to serve you.

This year Brewer High School is undergoing the first phase of major renovation. The sections we’re working on this year are more than 50 years old and need to be completely renovated to provide more functional space, to improve safety for our students, staff, and visitors, and to provide the technological infrastructure we need to support the tools of education. Phases II and beyond of the renovation will return Brewer High School to the up-to-date capacity that it has not had for decades. Thank you for your support to bring it back to what it once was. Major investments now ensure that a whole new high school will not be needed for many, many years.

Individual Brewer students are excelling, but it is incumbent on us to provide the opportunities necessary for increasing numbers of them to find their niche and to experience personal excellence in preparation for their lives after high school graduation.

Brewer Community School is in the able hands of Principal William Leithiser and his team. He has been an educational leader in Brewer since 1989, including stints as Brewer Middle School Principal from 1992 to 2011 and concurrently as State Street School principal from 2008 to 2011. Brewer High School is led by southern transplant Principal David Wall, who visited Maine in 2012 and wisely decided to stay. His 25 years of educational experiences as an administrator, science teacher, and teacher of physical education in South Carolina have allowed him to bring different ideas and insights to our veteran staff.

I am thrilled and honored to join the Brewer School Department team, which is led by its forward-thinking, yet practical, school board. I believe this generation of Brewer educators has what it takes to assist this generation of Brewer students to excel in ways that will serve our city, state, and nation admirably and with acclaim.
