Warren Fox Kaynor Technical High School was established in 1953, and is located in the city of Waterbury on approximately twenty acres. The building size is approximately 158,000 square feet (14,700 m2). Kaynor accepts students from the city of Waterbury and the towns of Naugatuck, Prospect, Watertown, Wolcott, Beacon Falls, Middlebury, Southbury and Woodbury. At present, Kaynor offers the following twelve trades: Automotive Collision Repair and Refinishing, Automotive Technology, Carpentry, Culinary Arts, Computer Aided Drafting and Design, Electrical, Electronics, Fashion Technology, Hairdressing and Barbering, Manufacturing Technology, Plumbing and Heating and Health Technology. In addition to the trades, the curriculum offers the following trade related subjects: Mathematics, Science, Art, and Computer Literacy. A full academic program is offered consisting of English, Social Studies, Physical Education and Life Skills. A 9 day cycle rotation is normally used to provide equal exposure to both occupational area and academic subject.

W.F. Kaynor Technical High School continues to provide the student population and the community with additional services such as: Special Education Programming, Remedial Reading, Math Lab, English Language Learning Programming, and counseling services. Kaynor has a well staffed Guidance department, a full-time School Psychologist, a part-time Social Worker, and a full-time Registered Nurse. During the first year, freshmen are assigned to a structured twenty-week curriculum that includes exposure to all twelve trades, trade related subjects and academic classes. Hands-on opportunities and theory lessons are provided in each trade area.

Since its opening in 1953, W.F. Kaynor Technical High School has undergone three expansion projects that have reflected the changing complexion of the community and have maintained pace with updated technology. When the school was initially opened, ten trades were offered. In 1968, one of the trades, Watch Clock and Instrument Making, was considered obsolete and was replaced by Electronics. In 1973 Automotive Collision Repair was moved into their new location after years of sharing space in the Automotive Trade. Plumbing and Heating was also added at this time. In 1982, Culinary Arts was added. In 1985, Automatic Screw Machine was added, but a lack of interest by students, coupled with a decreased need in the community resulted in termination of the program in 1989. In the 2006-2010 school year Health Technology was added. To date, Twelve trades are offered.

Placement is carried out through the combined efforts of the Administration and Guidance Department, with the shop department head acting as primary advocate. Many graduates return for additional training in our apprenticeship program offered through the Adult Education Program. There has been and will continue to be demand for our students and their skills in the marketplace.
