Ive lived in Waterbury for almost 18 years now and I can honestly say the public school system is horrible. Despite a waterbury teacher from my old school winning national teacher of the year, I can honestly say that in my four years of highschool Ive learned nothing to truly prepare me for college. In those four years, I did not learn how to write an essay at all! I watched a movie in every english class for the majority of the year for all four years which ended up being embarrasing for me when I started my first year of college. I hate to write this review becuase I really love the teachers in that school and they really do care about their students but schools in general have to change the way they are teaching things, its essentiallly time for an upgrade.

Too much violence going on! This is the whole reason why I'm in school to become a teacher, I want to see a change in the world and our kids. They are our new generation. We need more positive adults and leaders. This city was good and went downhill. Too many killings, car accidents, careless citizens trying to harm everyone around them, and many more robberies going on.

15 Best Things to Do in Waterbury (CT)


Waterbury in Connecticut is a city with a population of a little over 100,000 inhabitants that sits in leafy New England, and although its name may make you think that this city is closely associated with water, it is actually most well known for something else entirely.

Also referred to as the ‘Brass City’, Waterbury is known for is brass production and, as a natural result of this, as a large producer of clocks, watches, and other time pieces. To that end, there is even a time related museum here where you can learn all about this industry in Waterbury.
