Superintendent

Educating All Students Today for Tomorrow's Future

Welcome to Naugatuck Public Schools!

It is an honor and privilege to serve Naugatuck's children and families as the superintendent of schools. We have one Early Childhood Center, five Elementary Schools (K-4), two Intermediate Schools (5-6), one Middle School, one High School (9-12), and an Adult Education program. In Naugatuck schools, we partner with our families and community to ensure that each and every child is engaged in learning every day that helps them develop into the Vision of our Graduate. Our graduates are empowered citizens, researchers, innovators, informed thinkers, communicators and problem solvers. 
 
We believe that children learn through active, meaningful, and socioculturally designed experiences that nurture curiosity and excitement for learning. We celebrate our diversity and value the differences in our stories!  We expect all of our students and educators to ask questions, explore, make meaning, create and contribute. We take care of one another as we collaborate to make Naugatuck schools happy, and engaging places where each and every child is learning, growing and demonstrating competency.
 
Lastly, we value your insights and feedback as we are always striving to get better. Please feel free to contact me directly with your thoughts or suggestions by emailing me at Sharon.Locke@naugatuck.k12.ct.us
 
Sincerely, 
 
Sharon Locke
