Scofield Magnet Middle School is one of five middle schools in the Stamford Public School District. As a Magnet Middle School, we respect the unique characteristics and individuality of emerging adolescents. Our staff, in partnership with parents and students, strives to develop independent and responsible learners in both heterogeneous and homogeneous groupings. Through our unique school culture, we address the physical, social, and emotional needs that further intellectual development.
While using an interdisciplinary approach to learning, special emphasis is placed on math, science, and technology. The school is strongly committed to implementing the principles of the Carnegie Foundation Report and the Coalition of Essential Schools. The goal of the Magnet Middle School is to involve students in a learning partnership with the school, home, and community in order to insure success for all students.
The school philosophy is that students need to learn to think critically, master an appropriate body of knowledge, learn to apply knowledge in new and unfamiliar settings, and to develop a constant desire to learn something new if they are to succeed in their adult lives. The students acquire an appreciation for science as a critical inquiry across the subject areas so they are able to have the necessary skills for employment. The staff and parents work collaboratively on ensuring the success for all the students.
