About The Watershed School

At Watershed, students learn by going off campus, working with experts, and creating solutions to real-world problems. Instead of memorizing answers for standardized tests, they might learn economics by starting a small business or master algebra by solving an engineering problem. Watershed students learn with a purpose. Along the way, they’re part of a close-knit community that allows them to be who they are. It’s no wonder they love coming to school every day.
