Waterford Township lays claim to the first public school in Oakland County. That school was established in 1821 on the shores of Silver Lake with seven students. That number grew to 13 when its first permanent home, a log schoolhouse, was dedicated the next year. Ira Donelson, for whom Donelson Hills Elementary is named, was elected as the township's first Supervisor of Education in 1835, the year Waterford Township was organized. As the township grew, more schoolhouses were built, including Drayton Plains in 1865, Four Towns in 1866 and Waterford Center in 1869.
At its peak in the 1970s, Waterford School District contained 27 elementary schools, three middle schools and three high schools—Waterford Township which closed in 1983, Kettering and Mott. Today, there are nine elementary schools, two middle schools and two high schools.
