About Us

The Cunniff School is a PreK-5 elementary school located on 246 Warren Street. The school consists of approximately 330 students. The diversity reflective of the Cunniff community makes teaching and learning a rewarding experience for students, teachers and families.

The Cunniff School was established in 1954 as a 12 room schoolhouse. The school was originally erected in order to reduce crowded conditions in the other Watertown Public Schools. During its first year, the Cunniff had an enrollment of 437 students. The school was named after Judge P. Sarsfield, one of Watertown’s most respected citizens.
