Floyd B. Watson School

Floyd B. Watson School proudly opened in the fall of 1953. It is located on the corner of Lakeview and North Centre Avenues. The school was named in honor of Mr. Floyd B. Watson, who had served Rockville Centre as teacher, principal and superintendent for a total of thirty-eight years. Since that time, the school has become an integral part of the local community, serving two hundred forty-eight students of diverse backgrounds. A true partnership exists among community leaders, administrators, teachers, parents, and students. The principal of the school is Joan F. Waldman. The underlying philosophy at Watson is to provide a positive learning environment in which students’ multiple intelligences and talents are recognized and celebrated. Employing the strategies of differentiated instruction, teachers reach the needs of all members of the Watson community of learners. Upon entering the building, it is evident that Watson is a place where adults care and students shine. The halls are colorful and the work of the students is attractively displayed throughout the building.
