Welcome to Wethersfield Public Schools
Our focus is on ensuring that students acquire the skills and knowledge for lifelong learning, develop a positive sense of self and self-discipline, and function as responsible citizens of society.
Our students benefit from a close partnership between the District and the Wethersfield community as well as from strong parental support and involvement. More than 3,600 students attend one of five neighborhood K-6 elementary schools, matriculating to our middle school and high school. At all levels, students are exposed to a variety of learning experiences both in the classroom and through athletics, the arts, and other co-curricular activities - experiences that help them explore and discover their talents and interests. Students are guided in this journey of discovery by our talented and dedicated faculty who are committed to all learners and whose mission is to ensure that all students truly can be successful.

The Connecticut Appellate Court is "On Circuit" at Wethersfield High School
The Connecticut Appellate Court will hear arguments in two cases on Tuesday, April 16, at Wethersfield High School, 411 Wolcott Hill Road. The arguments are open to the public.
The visit is part of the Appellate Court’s “On Circuit” program, which provides students, educators and the public with a greater understanding of appellate courts. Since the program began in 1996, the court has heard arguments at several high school and higher education locations.
United Way ALICE Challenge
ALICE is an acronym that stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed which means families are not poor enough to qualify for financial assistance but they don't make enough to cover the basic cost of living. Right now over 1 third of Wethersfield families (34%) are ALICE families. That number is up 8% from 2014. How can we reverse this trend?
The United Way has offered Wethersfield 3 nights of food and childcare and $20,000 to work together to benefit Wethersfield families. What can Wethersfield do to help families succeed? We invite you all to attend the ALICE Challenge!
