Welcome to Worcester

Worcester County Public Schools has a long and proud tradition of excellence. When faced with the challenge of preparing the county's over 6,700 students for a successful future in the global economy, the Board of Education and the Superintendent of Schools established a strategic direction.   The five goals of the strategic direction outline the school system's focus to become a World Class Educational system.

An integral part of the strategic direction is improved partnerships with our school system community. Following feedback received from our stakeholders, we have redesigned our district and several schools' websites to give you - our online visitors - an experience that is more functional and easy to navigate. 

Please take some time to explore the new site, and don't hesitate to share your feedback by emailing info@mail.worcester.k12.md.us. Thanks for visiting, and we hope you return to the site soon!

Special Note: Many of you have asked, "Where is the school delay/closing notification on the new website?" The new website has the same feature where it will display delay/closing information on the homepage; however, if schools are operating normally, no message is displayed, so keep checking back here (or on our social media channels) at 5:30 a.m. for school delay/closing information. Thank you!
