__________________________________

Highcrest Elementary School is a vibrant, high-performing Kindergarten through Grade Six Elementary school located in a quiet residential Wethersfield neighborhood.  Brilliant views of the Connecticut River Valley frame our front doors.  Opened in 1969, Highcrest is a school of character that actively engages all of the 435 students in the Responsive Classroom and PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) model.  The hallmark of the “Highcrest Experience” is that all members of our community – our incredibly committed teachers, staff, families, and students, see each other as a true “Family” – heavily invested in the success of our school.  We enjoy all the benefits of being part of the Wethersfield Public School system: a highly trained, enthusiastic staff; an outstanding dedication to the use of the best curriculum and teaching strategies; an on-going commitment to the arts across the grade levels; and cutting edge assessments and interventions that promote the best opportunities for learning for all students across our population.  We maintain high expectations and are committed to creating an environment of mutual respect and responsibility. 

The Highcrest School community also enjoys a strong partnership between home and school and looks forward to your active participation.  Important ways for you to stay informed about daily happenings at Highcrest during the school year is through our school website and our electronic messaging system.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or Mrs. O'Connor if you require any additional information.

We are celebrating Dot Day today (Sept. 15th).  It's a world wide celebration to encourage people of all ages to harness their creativity. The inspiration behind the event is the children's book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.
4th graders decorated their dots to show support for those affected by the hurricanes.  Click link for photos...
