Located adjacent to the University of Hartford, Watkinson School is Hartford's oldest independent day school serving students in grades 6-12/PG.
The Watkinson Community is committed to aggressively affirming the dignity, value, and uniqueness of each person. We strive to maintain a community that reflects the diverse perspectives and backgrounds. We believe in creating a school community of students, faculty, staff, trustees, and alumnae where justice and equity for all people live in our words and actions.
We celebrate the contributions to our society that all forms of diversity make including gender, race/ethnicity, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, political beliefs, economic background and or physical ability/disability. We believe in continually surfacing and confronting discrimination of any kind and teaching ourselves how to acknowledge prejudice when we observe it, how to create understanding and how to heal wounds.
