A Note from the Superintendent

Dr. Lucero seated in a chairDear Students and Families,

Stamford Public Schools is proud to be a state leader in the academic opportunities available to our high school students. For instance, Stamford Public Schools offers more than 30 Advanced Placement courses along with specialized academic programs like the Stamford Regional Agriscience and Technology Program, the Academy of Finance, the Early College Studies program, JROTC, the High School of Business, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma program.

We also continue to develop our career pathways. For 2024-25 we are offering opportunities for students to pursue their interest in areas like public safety and advanced manufacturing with new courses in the fundamentals of emergency medical services and blueprint reading, respectively. These offerings are in addition to existing pathways in disciplines such as construction management, culinary arts, information technology, and more.

The Program of Studies serves as a planning guide for students to identify areas of interest and to learn about graduation requirements. I urge you to review this document together as a family and to discuss which courses are best suited to your student’s specific interests and academic goals.  Our school counselors stand ready to answer any questions you may have about the information in this document.

Creating a rich and varied program of studies requires the hard work of many people. Please join me in thanking our amazing teachers and the entire Teaching & Learning Department for developing these wonderful opportunities for Stamford’s students.

I hope you have fun exploring the possibilities in the 2024-25 Program of Studies, all of which support our vision to challenge, inspire and prepare all students for success.


Dr. Tamu Lucero
