Welcome to THE WEST HAVEN BOARD OF Education

Welcome to the West Haven Board of Education’s website. The West Haven Public School District is composed of nine schools: Alma E. Pagels Elementary School, Edith E. Mackrille Elementary School, Forest Elementary School, Savin Rock Community School, Seth G. Haley Elementary School, Washington Elementary School, Carrigan Intermediate School, Bailey Middle School and West Haven High School.

We invite you to learn more about our schools, which currently accommodate around 5,900 students, and the countless programs that help enrich each child’s education.

We are fortunate to have a school system brimming with bright and ambitious students, resourceful and innovative teachers, and staff members who work tirelessly to keep the district running. We see our teachers and staff members truly putting students first in everything they do and making strategic decisions to help our youngsters advance in their academic careers.

We are developing more opportunities for kids each year. Course selections are growing, and schools continue offering new programs that help create well-rounded and inquisitive students. Meanwhile, administrators are strengthening partnerships with outside institutions, such as the University of New Haven and Yale University, to give children a leg up in learning about career and college paths.

Teachers and staff members are recognizing their students’ strengths, while encouraging them to take on new challenges, and we’re seeing the positive effects of this approach every day.

Be sure to visit this site frequently, as events, announcements and school and district news will be updated nearly every day.


  • Calling all West Haven High School softball alumni: Help us honor Frank and Bonnie Biondi and Cliff Casner on May 4 at Frank Biondi Field at WHHS. The ceremony will be held at 6:45 p.m., and West Haven will face off against Sheehan starting at 7 p.m. Come out and pay tribute to these three for their years of coaching and teaching, as well as their dedication to the West Haven softball program.

  • Bennett Rink is holding the Great Skate Open House event Tuesday, April 21, and Friday, April 24, 6-8 p.m. Bring the family for a free night of fun and learn to skate or get some extra practice. Skating, lessons, rental equipment, and raffles will all be free. The events will also feature meet and greets with WHHS boys and girls hockey team players, pictures with the WHHS Blue Devil, and more. Bring a helmet for your child if you have one (there will be some available at the rink as well). Click for the The Great Skate flyer.
