Welcome to the AOS# 47 website serving the Dedham and Orrington communities.   We are very proud of our district.  The collaboration between our communities has allowed us to continue to support two excellent schools that develop lifelong successful learners.   Both communities offer Pre-K-8 programming and tuitioning out of our high school students.  The Dedham Elementary School and Center Drive School are true community schools welcoming all students, parents and community members.  Through the continued support of our communities, we are able to offer an excellent education to every student.   

I am proudest of our commitment to the well-being of our students.  We support all of our students, all the time, as a team.  The team approach in our system is what makes the difference for students, for staff and within our communities. 

As a district we are committed to ongoing improvement of the instruction for all students.  Our Strategic Plan supports this goal by having two primary focuses of communication  and curriculum and can be found here.
