It STARts with the ARTS!
The Rotella Interdistrict Magnet School opened in 2000. The student body consists of students in grades pre-K through five who reside in Waterbury and its surrounding towns. Our school motto is "It STARts with the ARTS".
“ Rotella Magnet School is the most decorated magnet school in the country.” It is a great example of how a magnet school can be. A model for all magnet schools demonstrating ‘where we’ve been to where we are now’ through true integration of a magnet theme. Rotella contributes this knowledge nationally by participating in conferences and demonstrating how it is done.”
