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 2017 - 2018 District Goals to better understand the beliefs 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 and ask a question or make a comment.
