Plymouth Public Schools ::
Superintendent's Message
Dr. Martin Semmel

 

It is my privilege to welcome you to the Plymouth Public Schools, a district committed to excellence in education.  Our schools have a long history of promoting student success through the collective commitment of the community, Board of Education, parents, staff and students. We have four schools: Harry S. Fisher Elementary School, Plymouth Center School, Eli Terry Jr. Middle School and Terryville High School, with an overall enrollment close to 1,600 students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelve.

 

The mission of the Plymouth Public Schools is to Challenge, Inspire, and Prepare all students for success in an ever-changing and complex world.

 

As an educator for the past 19 years, I have dedicated my professional life to helping students maximize their learning.  As your new Superintendent, I am committed to attaining this goal for all students in Plymouth.  I will begin my work by learning about all of the wonderful opportunities that we provide by visiting our schools and speaking with students, staff, parents, and community members.  Taking advantage of these educational opportunities is critical for our kids to succeed in the global economy.  The competition for entrance into rigorous colleges and high-quality jobs is becoming fierce.  Through a strong collaboration between our schools and families we can help all of our students succeed.

 

The pages of this website are filled with valuable information about our schools.  I encourage you to take the time to review our website and become informed.  I will use this forum to communicate with parents and provide important information as the year progresses. 

 

I have already had a chance to meet some outstanding staff members, parents and community members in Plymouth, and I look forward to working with all members of the community to ensure the continued success of our students.

 

Sincerely,

  

Dr. Martin J. Semmel

Superintendent of Schools
