Cromwell High School is the town high school of Cromwell, Connecticut.



In 1811, Cromwell High School occupied the building now used as Belden Library, which is adjacent to the town hall. There were 278 students total in this year. In 1902, the Nathaniel White School was built, and used as the high school for 54 years, until the current high school, Cromwell High School, was built in 1956.[1] The Nathaniel White School is now known as Cromwell Middle School and until September 2006 was used for grades 5, 6, 7, and 8. Fifth grade is now taught at Woodside Intermediate School along with 3rd and 4th grade. The high school is used for grades 9, 10, 11, and 12.
