Philosophy
The West Haven Public School District is committed to the belief that all children are capable of attaining high levels of achievement in preparation for productive, rewarding lives and responsible citizenship.

Students will reach this goal through their own diligence and effort, a learning climate that responds to individual academic needs, a curriculum that challenges and is aligned with the state standards, adequate resources and skilled, professional instruction. Furthermore, a belief in social equality underlies West Haven’s commitment to providing a high quality of education for all students.
