The old high school, now an intermediate school, was located on Hillside Ave. The new school is located at 543 Rubber Avenue. The building was constructed in 1959. Three wings were added during the 1970s: Castle House, Goodyear House, and the Applied Education Wing, which contains all the shop classes. The main building then became known as Judd House. Recent renovations have resulted in a re-brand of the wings of Naugatuck High School. Judd House is now known as North, Castle and Goodyear Houses have combined to become South, the Applied Education wing is East, and the gym, auxiliary gym, and pool make up West. The original building, located on Hillside Ave., was built in 1905 by McKim, Mead, and White and then was the Hillside Middle School until the 2010-2011 term when it became Hillside Intermediate School.
The school mascot is the greyhound and the school colors are garnet and grey. Naugatuck competes against other high schools in the Naugatuck Valley League.
