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 developed a framework for educational excellence, innovation, and equity - the Portrait of A Needham Graduate Strategic Plan - that  informs the district's work going forward. Needham Public Schools supports all our students in becoming creative thinkers and problem solvers, communicators and collaborators, socially and culturally responsive contributors, responsible and resilient individuals, and empowered learners. I encourage you to review our Performance Report and  FY24 Actions for examples of current teaching practices aligned with this Portrait vision, along with ideas and challenges for boosting student learning around each of the district priorities.

Through this website, the Needham Public Schools commits itself to share timely information with 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 with updates about various school programs and events. Please join now!

Additionally, the Needham School Committee wishes to hear from members of the community. You may contact them at [email protected] and ask a question or make a comment.

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