Get Involved

Waterford Staff members are committed to providing enriching opportunities for our students.  We know that students will take ownership of their learning and grow academically when they are involved with the school outside of the classroom.  Whether during the day or after school, our activities are supervised and give students a chance to learn new skills and experience success.
