The Enlightenment School

The Enlightenment School is a program designed to provide a stable, nurturing, and stimulating environment for "at risk" students in grades 6-12 in the Waterbury School system. All faculty members, are certified in core content areas and deliver the best opportunities for our students to learn. Support staff consists of a twelve month secretary, nurse, prevention specialist, truancy prevention specialist, parent liaison, school counselor, school social worker, school psychologist, and an in-school suspension teacher and all are supported by a School Resource Officer (SRO). 

Students are referred to the program by their district schools. An interview with the principal, a parent/guardian, and the student is required prior to acceptance to the program.  Students and parents/guardians are required to sign a contract before enrolling in the program. The program also serves expelled students in grades 6-12.

Upon acceptance, into this setting students are offered an intensive and individualized program to assist them in developing academically and socially.


Please contact the building Principal Dr. Richard M. Arroyo to discuss all the School has to offer.
