The Waterford School in Utah has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates to conduct strategic planning for the 2017-18 school year. Our work will commence with research in late spring.
Founded in 1981 by the non-profit Waterford Institute, the Waterford School was established as a research school to join the great lessons of a classical liberal arts education with the benefits of the latest computer technology. This partnership produced a model that the Waterford Institute has integrated in public schools throughout the country and has thus produced improved educational opportunities for all children. Today, the Waterford School and the Waterford Institute are two separate non-profit organizations, each independently governed by its own board of trustees, yet still enjoy the benefits of ongoing partnership, collaboration and research.
Waterford School provides liberal arts college preparatory education for students in Preschool through Grade 12, serving students from Salt Lake City, Holladay, Sandy, Draper, Park City, Utah County and throughout the Wasatch front. Founded in 1981, the school instills qualities of independent thought, responsibility, and service as it helps students lay a solid foundation for college and prepares them to lead purposeful and honorable lives. Parents trust Waterford to deliver the finest education based on the richness of its curriculum, the quality of its faculty, the commitment of its students, and the safety of its environment. Using classical ideals for learning and life, Waterford teachers measure their effectiveness by the growth and development of each student.
