Special Education

Welcome to Pupil Personnel Services

Home to Special Education, Guidance, and Nursing services for our Waltham Public Schools students, dedicated to educating and supporting the whole child.

The Waltham Public Schools Special Education Department is responsible for making sure that our 1250 students with special education needs successfully access the general education curriculum with the support of specialized instruction and support services. Our students, who range in age from 3 to 22 years old and are in grades Pre-K through post grade 12, have learning needs that are met in the least restrictive educational environment as possible. Specialized programs are found in each building.
