Waterville Senior High School by J.Farnola


All Parents and Students:


Each fall the Waterville Senior High School Guidance Department offers an evening event for parents and students with a focus on early college planning.  This year’s event is schedule for Wednesday, October 8th at 6:00 pm in the Trask Auditorium.


Jonathan Kent, Vice President of Enrollment Management at Thomas College will be our guest speaker.  He will discuss topics such as, the application process, selecting a school that is the best “fit”, what to look for on campus visits, writing the college essay, what colleges look for in a student, testing requirements, estimating college costs and much more. As well, Jonathan will present helpful information about financial aid for college.


It is never too early to begin gathering information about the college and financial information process.  The more information you and your student have, the easier the decisions become when they are seniors.  Given the cost of a college education at this time, it is important to start learning and preparing.

Can you help?

We have high school students in need of basic school supplies and our reserve is low.  We could use things like 3-ring binders, filler paper, dividers, pens, pencils, pocket folders. etc.  Even gently used binders and folders would be appreciated!  Please drop off donations in the guidance office.  Thank you!"



Thank you all for a great year. Have a safe summer. Graduates, the very best of luck on your future beyond Waterville High, and underclassmen, see you after the summer break! 

US News Silver Medal - Best High Schools

*Correction: Student Population as of 4/28/14 was 588 providing a 13:1 Student/Teacher ratio.

For the third year in a row, Waterville High School has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a medalist school (Bronze 2012, Silver 2013, & Bronze 2014).  U.S. News starts by analyzing over 31,000 public high schools in the United States and reduces that down to their final list of schools with a "high enough 12th-grade enrollment and sufficient data from the 2011-2012 school year to be eligible for the rankings."  We are proud of our selection again this year, as it confirms what we already know--Waterville High has great students and a dedicated faculty and staff.
