Welcome!

Waterford Public School, home of the Wildcats, is a Junior Kindergarten to grade 8 school of approximately 340 students located at 100 East Church St. adjacent to county baseball diamonds and the arena. It came into existence in its present form in September, 2010 with the expansion of the former Ada B. Massecar Campus from six classrooms to twelve with three portables. Additional portable classrooms have been added to meet the needs of our community in recent years.

At Waterford Public, staff and students promote the ideal of being “A Community Where Everyone: Can Learn, Is Safe and Is Respected. It Takes a Community to Make Our School The Best Place To Be.”
