Naugatuck Public Schools

The Naugatuck School District serves over 4,000 students from pre-kindergarten to grade 12, with continuing education for adults. We have 1 early childhood center, 5 elementary schools (kindergarten through 4th grade), 2 intermediate schools (grades 5 & 6), 1 middle school (grade 7 & 8) and 1 high school (grades 9-12). We also have a school for adults seeking to complete their GED, earn a high school diploma, learn English, and continue their education through arts, technology, exercise, personal development, and culinary skills.
Our newly renovated high school features state-of-the-art science laboratories, pristine turf fields, a beautiful auditorium and swimming pool with stadium seating. This $81 million investment is providing the perfect space for students grow into graduates who are responsible citizens, researchers, innovators, informed thinkers, communicators and problem solvers.
During the past three years, the Board of Education has invested heavily in teaching and learning.  Our schools have been equipped with new technology, books and curricula.  More importantly, we have cultivated a culture with a focus on developing happy and curious learners who collaborate to solve problems. The investment is paying off; our math results on the Smarter Balanced Assessment improved by twelve percentage points!
Naugatuck Public Schools employs about 574 full-time equivalent positions, including 300 certified teachers. 
The 2018-19 budget is about $61.68 million dollars.
