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.

The Wethersfield Family Hour of Code Night
Posted 12/01/2017 11:35AM
Once again, the WHS Computer Science students would like to invite kids in grades 4 - 8 and their parents or guardians to the WHS Family Hour of Code.  The event will be in Room 402 at WHS on Thursday, December 7, from 7 - 8 PM (but you can arrive as early as 6:30 to avoid waiting in line).  This is part of the world-wide "Hour of Code" celebration happening in December.  You and your kids will be writing computer code to create colorful, noisy programs.  You don't have to know anything at all about computer code; that's the point!  We guarantee you will write your first code in ten minutes or less, and have fun doing it.  You will be assisted by current and former WHS Comp Sci students, who will help every step of the way.  We will be adding one or two new choices to the program, so if you have joined us before, please come again and see what's new.
The event is open to all employees and residents of Wethersfield, and their kids in grades 4 - 8.  (If you need / want to bring younger kids, just let us know; we can adapt!)
You can sign up by completing the form at:
You can also see the attached flyer for a more colorful invitation, here:
Hope to see you there!

Such very exciting news!!! This morning, at Emerson-Williams, we welcomed representatives from the Fund for Teachers organization as they surprised and presented Mr. Bubser Grade Six Emerson with a Summer 2018 Fellowship Grant in the amount of $5,000! This is incredibly exciting news that will benefit all of Emerson-Williams when he brings back his amazing new learning. Mr. Bubser will be studying ways we can increase the overall mathematical thinking and problem solving here at EW. He will travel to Italy (Florence and Rome); Geneva, Switzerland; and Frankfurt, Germany. While there, he will speak with experts, investigate math museums, and discover examples of historic and modern problem solving that he will bring back to us.
