News & Events
Read Anna Guo's, class of 2010, recollections of Waterside School. She is currently a Freshman at Boston College.
On Saturday, September 16, Waterside launched Transition Academy, a series of classes for our sixth and seventh grade alumni. Led by Mr. Duennebier, a middle school teacher at Brunswick School, Transition Academy provides academic assistance and coaching to the alumni as they transition to their new schools. The Saturday morning classes provide the students with support in long-term planning, organization, and other skills that will enable them to excel in middle school. Additionally, the students are able to reconnect with each other, ensuring that their connection to the Waterside family remains strong well beyond graduation.
During the week of June 26, Waterside School welcomed back rising juniors and seniors for an intensive College Boot Camp. Students from Waterside's class of 2011 and class of 2012 worked all week on college essays, resumes, and interview practice. Guidance counselors from local independent schools shared their expertise on college affordability and the college search, and juniors and seniors recommitted to finishing their high school careers on the best possible note. Additionally, Carnegie Pollak provided state of the art ACT tutoring for the students, and the students returned the week of August 27 to continue their ACT Prep. In keeping with the school's mission to help students gain access to superior academic opportunities, College Boot Camp was just one of the many ways Waterside seeks to level the playing field, both for its students as well as for its alumni.
On Monday July 24th, Waterside School Summer Productions put on its 4th annual summer musical: "Willy Wonka." With more that 50 students involved, our performers took the audience to a world of "pure imagination" with their creativity, their talents, and their spirit.
