About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of the Stafford Public Schools is to prepare our students to assume productive, meaningful, and responsible roles in an increasingly competitive global society.

The Community

Stafford, Connecticut was settled in 1719 and is located in Tolland County.  Geographically it is 58 square miles and is the 3rd largest town in the State of Connecticut, based on the land area. The size of Stafford allows for educators to develop strong relationships with colleagues and families.  In partnership with students, families and the community, ours schools strive to nurture learners that are productive, responsible, independent and dedicated to excellence.

The Schools

Stafford Public Schools has an enrollment of approximately 1,500 students across five schools- two primary (PK-1), one elementary (2-5), one middle (6-8), and one high school (9-12).  Stafford Public Schools was recognized in 2017 by U.S. News and World Report as a Silver Award Winner for America's Best High Schools and named the 2018 Michael's Cup Unified Middle School of the Year.
