Mission of the Wethersfield Public Schools

Education in Wethersfield is the shared responsibility of schools, students, families and other community agencies working together so that Wethersfield students may realize their full potential. Accordingly, the mission of the Wethersfield Public Schools is to ensure that all students will:

  • Acquire skills and knowledge for life-long learning, enabling them to compete in a global economy;
  • Develop a positive sense of self, enabling them to set high expectations;
  • Develop self-discipline and function as responsible citizens of society; and
  • Develop and understand their ethical, cultural, aesthetic and intellectual values and respect those of others.
