Welcome to the
Watertown Public Schools
It is with enthusiasm that we welcome you to the Watertown Public Schools.
Watertown views the education of its children as a shared responsibility of the school system, our families, and the community. The school system serves a diverse population of approximately 3,300 students in grades pre-K-12. As part of the district’s continuous improvement initiative, considerable efforts have been undertaken to revise curriculum and engage students in powerful learning experiences aligned to state standards and emphasizing the critical thinking and problem solving skills necessary for students to be successful in college and as citizens in our global community.
Across our five schools, administrators, teachers and staff members work in collaboration with families to engage in continuous improvement efforts that challenge and support our students. The Watertown Board of Education is deeply committed to strengthening the engagement of the community in the work of the public school system and is focused on excellence at all levels of the educational organization.
The purpose of our website is to keep our students, staff, parents and community informed of the services, resources and programs that are offered by the Watertown Public Schools. We encourage you to explore this website and learn more about the quality programming that is offered in our schools and community.
The Town of Watertown comprises 29.8 square miles located within picturesque Litchfield County. As a suburb of the Waterbury Metropolitan area, we enjoy the educational and cultural resources within our town as well as nearby in Hartford, Boston, New York City and beyond. Welcome to our schools.
