Watkinson has been a school that has literally changed my child's life. Our daughter had a soul-crushing experience in the public elementary school--supposedly one of the best districts in Connecticut. She had a very large gap between her verbal/reading skills and math skills and no one seemed to pick up on it. What a refreshing change to have a school that not only "gets" my daughter but celebrates and finds opportunities for her to demonstrate mastery of learning vs. taking and preparing for mind-numbing standardized tests. The teachers and administration are superb, caring, committed, bright, and responsive. The small student body does pose some problems (you better be able to get along with people....) but it also affords deep friendships and support to develop. The food is tremendous with a focus on locally sourced products--some grown and gathered from the garden. If you equate academic success with hours and hours of homework and high standardized test scores, this isn't the place for your child. If, however, you believe in "going deep" and finding evaluation and testing methods that demonstrate real depth of understanding, you should check out Watkinson.

We have two children who attend Watkinson. Each one has their own style of learning, studying, social experiences and interests. The Watkinson faculty and staff create an environment which allows them to grow and become the person they are meant to be. We have lots of options in our area and truly found the best one for our family!

Well, Watkinson is a great school, but if you are looking to go to a school away from cliques, this is not the place. There is still bullying. Anyway it is okay and go if you want.

I am a senior at watkinson and I have had my ups and downs with the school. Sure, I have faced challenges making friends and with a few of the teachers, but to be honest, most of my problems at watkinson were my fault. Once i decided to break out of my shell, I met the most wonderful people imaginable. My advisor is the closest thing to a father I have ever had and my basketball coach is always there to push me. I made my closest friends at watkinson and will be extremely sad to leave this all behind in June, even though I know I will always have connection to the school. Being at Watkinson has given me a glimpse of what it is like to truly be loved by pretty much everyone around you. All the teachers know me and I know all of them, same with the kids. Watkinson is what you make of it. Dont listen to the negatives, and be wary of the positives. Just remember: Watkinson is what you make of it. i just know ill forever be in debt to the faculty at Watkinson for placing me on the right path to happiness and success--JMC
