The Center for Teaching and Learning is a K-8 demonstration school dedicated to the development and dissemination of authentic, rigorous and joyful methods for teaching across the curriculum.

The Center for Teaching and Learning was founded in 1990 as a non-profit demonstration school.

It draws students from twenty-three communities in the mid-coast region.
