A Message From the Head of School
People often ask me to describe the essence of The Waterford School. This is not an easy question – the answer is surprisingly nuanced and complex. Of course, it is simple enough to talk about our exceptional faculty, outstanding facilities and programs, and rigorous academic standards. It is certainly no secret that Waterford students consistently excel at many of the nation’s finest colleges and universities. And it is not particularly difficult to outline the benefits of our educational philosophy, which is firmly grounded in the liberal arts tradition.
But the true essence of Waterford goes beyond these. It includes a unique passion for knowledge that our students and teachers bring with them to school every day. It embodies an intense curiosity and thrill of discovery that encompasses classrooms and hallways. And it embraces a commitment to excellence that motivates each Waterford parent, teacher, and student.
Perhaps the only way to truly understand the essence of Waterford School is to experience it. From the moment you set foot on our campus, you will begin to sense the passion and commitment that define our school. As you observe our teachers and students, you will see the advantages of an educational philosophy that combines academic excellence with natural curiosity and a profound love of learning and knowledge. And as you watch your own children develop into complete, well educated, and purposeful adults, you will fully recognize the immeasurable value The Waterford School can offer your family.
We invite you to visit the school and discover this remarkable essence for yourself. Learn how Waterford can transform and enrich your children’s lives.
