School Notes

  • The Waterside School opened with twenty-seven students, a handful of teachers and an ambition bold and timely.Now spanning six grades, with one hundred students and a teaching faculty of twenty-three, the School has grown larger, stronger and better.The dream of all that might be has become a working reality and the successes on every front have provided fitting testament to the worthiness and sustainability of the effort, the promise of the children served and the herculean efforts of all committed and involved.The School is blessed with visionary leadership, a socio-economically and culturally diverse student body, a talented and passionate teaching faculty, an involved parent body and the generous support of the greater community.In the culture that is Waterside, one both singular and inspiring, the promise of every child is respected and honored and all that are a part of the School are challenged to strive to the highest academic and personal standards.
