Location and Transportation

We are located in a revitalized historic building in the heart of Centreville, Maryland. Because of our distinctive mission, Wye River Upper School attracts students from both sides of the Chesapeake Bay. Our students currently come from Anne Arundel, Calvert, Prince George’s, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, Caroline, Dorchester, and Kent Counties as well as the state of Delaware. Some alumni have also come from the District of Columbis, Howard and Montgomery County. To make our school accessible, we offer daily bus service to and from eight stops throughout the region. Estimated travel time to different locations can be viewed below.

*Based on mapquest.com directions. Can vary depending on traffic. We are fortunate to be traveling opposite the traffic flow on both morning and afternoon runs.

If you are driving to our school, be aware that roadwork is being completed on Commerce Street in front of WRUS. Please take note of the directions below. The app "WAZE" also is able to instruct you on how to get to our parking lot which we share with St. Paul's church (adjacent to us).

When coming from Easton, Annapolis, etc. (from south to north on Route 213):
a. After passing the Hillside Gas Station, veer left onto Liberty Street. Approximately 1000 yards after the gas station (on your right) is a white church. Turn right after the church- onto Ridgeview Avenue. Take Ridgeview to Commerce Street - make a left and then proceed to the school.

b.If for any reason Ridgeview is closed or blocked, continue to take Liberty and then turn on Church Lane, which will bring you to the back of the upper/main parking lot that we share with St. Paul's.

When coming from Chestertown, Church Hill, etc. (heading from north to south on Route 213):
a. Once into town, please turn left onto either Water, Fayette, or Church Lane. Church Lane will bring you to the back side of the upper parking lot that we share with the church.

b. From Water, you can turn right onto Happy Lady, and then right onto Kidwell. The edge of Kidwell is directly across from the school's parking lot. c. If you miss any of the previous options, then you can still turn left onto Ridgeview but it is past the school.

When coming from QACHS, ACME, etc.,

Turn onto Kidwell and cross Commerce in order to park in our lot (shared with St. Paul's Church).
