Our Mission

At Emerson-Williams Elementary School, we strongly believe in the joy of learning. Ours is a caring, compassionate environment that respects and supports the dignity of the whole child. We work hand-in-hand with families and the community to develop lifelong learners and contributing members of our changing society.

The Emerson-Williams School

The Emerson-Williams School was named after two prominent educators, the Reverends Joseph Emerson and Elisha Williams:

The Reverend Joseph Emerson (1777-1833) was a pioneer in women's education. In addition to writing several educational works, he organized a school of religious instruction for women. In 1824, he moved his female seminary from Massachusetts to the Old Academy on Main Street in Wethersfield.

The Reverend Elisha Williams (1694-1755) was a pioneer in higher education, and a famous teacher in colonial America. He taught at Yale College, when the largest of its three branches was in Wethersfield. In 1726, he was chosen President of the college, and then established in New Haven.
