Welcome to the website of the Needham Public Schools! I hope you will find the information you need to learn about the people, programs, and activities that make our school system a dynamic learning experience for all students.

​The Needham Public Schools has identified the core values of Scholarship, Citizenship, Community, and Personal Growth as being fundamental to our mission. These values provide a foundation for educating our children and support district goals and plans. I encourage you to review our 2018 Performance Report to better understand the beliefs and goals that guide our work with Needham’s students.

​Through this website, the Needham Public Schools commits itself to share timely information to students, parents, staff, and community members who depend on updated and helpful information and assistance. I invite you to join the superintendent’s listserve to receive periodic emails about various school programs and events. Please join now!

​Additionally, the Needham School Committee wishes to hear from members of the community about issues and concerns critical to the schools and its many programs. You may contact them at schoolcommittee@needham.k12.ma.us and ask a question or make a comment.

​We are proud of our school district and are happy to share information about the Needham Public Schools with you.
