Dear Prospective Worcester Public Schools Employee
The Worcester Public Schools is an urban school district, which serves over 23,000 students in a diverse college town setting. Almost 90% of our city’s residents, with school age children, entrust the Worcester Public Schools to deliver high quality education in a safe and stimulating learning environment. Our students benefit from a cutting edge approach to education, which is enriched by our professional development schools in partnership with the education departments at Clark University, the College of the Holy Cross, and Worcester State College. The Worcester Public Schools also welcomes student teachers from Assumption College, Anna Maria College, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Worcester Public Schools teachers embrace education reform and other opportunities to change their practice in order to improve student performance. Professional development, coaching and common planning are essential elements of teaching and learning in the Worcester Public Schools.
All Worcester Public Schools employees, regardless of their job title, are expected to contribute to the goal of increasing student achievement for all students, while simultaneously closing the achievement gap.
If you have high expectations for public education, as well as for yourself, the Worcester Public Schools may be the right place for you.
