Welcome to Robert Waters

Robert Waters Elementary School

Robert Waters School was built between 1926 and 1927 and designed by Joseph Lugosch, a German immigrant who arrived in Union City in 1901. It is an original structure that has a combination of several stylistic influences inclu
ding Collegiate Gothic and Second Renaissance Revival. The school was dedicated in 1927 and has gone through many changes and expansions. The school was named for Robert Waters, an author and educator, who was born in 1835. Waters taught languages, history and literature at the Hoboken German Academy from 1868-1883. He was appointed Supervising Principal and Superintendent of Schools of West Hoboken's School System, the present Union City, in 1883. Under his leadership the school system greatly expanded. He died in 1910: a plaque mounted in the main corridor honors his achievements. It reads, "An educator, efficient and conscientious, a man whose deepest thoughts and greatest efforts were given to further the educational interests of the community he served."
