Watertown Public schools were wonderful when it came to diversity, many students from different ethnics really put things into perspective. The elementary schools are wonderful, the staff is amazing when it comes to the children's academics and safety. Sadly, the high school isn't the best place to attend, many of the staff are useful and care about their students, but when it comes to little things such as preparing for college. Getting assistance can be difficult.

As a student who has grown up in Watertown and attended the public schools each year, I have definitely had a really great experience. Every teacher is committed to helping students learn, even if it means taking time outside of class. I have also loved how in at Watertown teachers "teach to the test" as little as possible and really try to get students interested in learning about what they need for the real world.
Watertown is a small town, in the beautiful state of Massachusetts. Within its limited borders Watertown is full of history and very friendly community member. Compared to other towns Watertown is not completely diverse. The time spent in Watertown school was memorable, although the lack of diversity was a huge disappointment
