The quality of any school begins and ends with its teachers. Since its inception, The Waterford School has developed a faculty with varied backgrounds, impressive credentials, and an unquenchable love for teaching and education.
Waterford teachers were educated at many of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the United States, including Brown, Cornell, Yale, Stanford, and Harvard. They are experts in the subjects they teach. And they are all committed to their lifework as educators.
At Waterford, these talented, dedicated professionals enjoy unusual freedom to explore their fields of study, expand the breadth and depth of their curriculum, and take advantage of their unique experiences in their classrooms. Members of the Waterford faculty respect the power they have to influence students’ lives. They know how to make meaningful connections with students and unlock the potential within them. They have the ability to transform the most basic topics into exciting explorations that are substantial and relevant.
Waterford is for students who want to learn, who want to experience so much and do so much. In the process, these students of dramatically different sizes and ages, interests and abilities become remarkably good people, ready to take their place in the world. They all wear uniforms, yet each stands out in the crowd. They all love to play, whether in organized team competition or in activities they fashion themselves.
It is a very busy regimen. One that is as demanding as it is consuming and fulfilling. Put simply, Waterford students enjoy a remarkable school experience. They learn to work together; small numbers prompt camaraderie and community. For each student there is more than enough to do, never enough time to do it all. What they choose to do, they do well.
