Waterford High School 5

To give an update- both field hockey and lacrosse have been incorporated as official school sports. A new high school building was just recently opened in April of 2013. Ceilings, walls, and bathrooms are no longer falling apart; there is also much better climate control throughout the new school. The new resources for students are state of the art as well. The majority of the teachers here truly care and there is also a good selection of AP and honors courses for anyone to take. My one complaint is the little attention upperclassmen get when trying to search for and apply to college. You truly have to advocate for yourself if you feel as if you need help in this department. With about 900 student however, it is difficult for the four guidance counselors to give individualized attention to every student, a problem at at any larger school, private or public. Overall, Waterford High School and all Waterford Public Schools still get five stars, their public education system is one of the best.

Brand new high school just being finished, so the age of the building being a 2013 build makes it state of the art. It will be interesting to see how the students and teachers find the new learning environment to be. That won't be known until next year after both students and faculty get settled in to the new building. It will be better after the old building demolition is completed and then grounds are finished. My oldest daughter graduated from Waterford High School last year and is doing very well in college and that speaks volumes about the effort the teachers and guidance counseling staff's ability to prepare our children for higher education.

The building is old with climate control issues and it's falling down (ceilings, walls and lavatories). The budget is being channeled to build a new school, but basic maintenance is not being done. Teachers are good, but how long can they keep positive attitudes and work in decrepit conditions? The curriculum is average and good students are not challenged to excel; the emphasis is on those who are not meeting standards.

I'm not impressed with this school at all. It has changed drastically since I was a student there. There are some teachers, that should not be working around children. I'm vey disappointed.

I would like to see Field Hockey and Lacrosse added to the sports extracurricular activities-a number of schools in Ct. have already included them.
