Waterford has a Dual Language Two-Way Immersion Program. We provide kindergarten students with the opportunity to begin the journey toward bilingualism, bi-literacy, and bi-culturalism, in English and Spanish.
Waterford is blessed with a staff that creates positive relationships with students in order to meet their social and emotional needs. It is very evident that this staff truly cares about its students! We are committed to meeting the academic needs of every child that walks through the doors of Waterford. Through weekly staff professional development, teachers continue to grow their instructional capacity in order to provide quality instruction to every student. Waterford parents and community members play a huge role in the success of our school.
Waterford students experience academic and social learning through a variety of hands-on and content-rich opportunities. Our curriculum is anchored to the essential learnings of all content areas (language arts, math, science, and social studies) and allows for balanced and enriching activities that build intellect, foster curiosity, demonstrate mastery, and are applicable in real-world situations. As with all Goshen Community Schools, Waterford emphasizes literacy and math and provides additional programs that help students succeed. Check out what we have to offer!

Parents, students, and educators follow a common set of guidelines to make the school year run smoothly. Elementary schools in the Goshen Community Schools district share a standard school handbook. Policy items and contents range from student progress and conferences to the lost and found. The handbook also covers procedural information such as dropping off and picking up students.

School Improvement Plan
Every school, as part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act and Indiana’s Public Law 221, must have a school improvement plan. Each school has an improvement team comprised of staff, parents and community members. These teams developed their initial building plan in 2001-02 and revise the plan as needed each year.
