W. F. Kaynor Technical High School, or Kaynor Tech, is a technical high school located in Waterbury, Connecticut. Students from Waterbury and the surrounding towns can attend Kaynor.[1] Kaynor Tech is part of the Connecticut Technical High School System.

History

Since 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 kept pace with 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 its new location after years of sharing space with 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. The Fashion shop was no longer available to be selected as of 2014. Beginning in the fall of 2015, Informational Systems Technology will be offered in its place.
