School presentation

There are two schools participating in this event; South Street Elementary School and Westside Middle School Academy (WMSA).

Westside Middle School Academy offers students a unique opportunity to partake in rigorous hands-on activities. There are two academies at Westside, STEM and Global Studies. In the STEM academy, students take part in engineering projects such as building small paper boats, designing escape pods and launching weather balloons. Students also participate in the Connecticut Invention Convention and Connecticut State Science Fair. Teamwork is essential at Westside. Our teachers encourage us to go beyond our limits and to give our best effort. In addition, Westside has a culture of safety, respect and responsibility (S R 2), which ensures that all students are learning in a safe environment. Finally, the diversity of our school community enhances the learning experience for all students.

South Street School is one of 13 elementary schools in the city of Danbury.  The staff of South Street prides themselves on the diversity of the school as it compares to the rest of the district as well as the state.  The state average for Hispanic students making up the school population is 22.1%, South Street boasts a solid 64.5% Hispanic population.  The “Melting Pot” community that is found at the school allows for an incredible mix of background experiences, cultural traditions and a wealth of different styles of learning.  The majority of students gets to and from school by walking with their families or friends and the sense of community and family is strongly felt in the school and the surrounding areas.   Students at South Street thrive in an environment that emphasizes inquiry based learning and hands on experiences to fully immerse themselves in the complex curriculum of today’s schools.
