Stamford Public Schools (SPS) comprises nearly 16,000 students, over 1,500 professionals, and 21 schools, including seven magnet schools and three International Baccalaureate sites. SPS has a total of 13 elementary schools, five middle schools and three high schools. SPS is proud that our district is as rich in diversity as it is in talent. We have students from many cultural backgrounds and geographic locations—as demonstrated by the more than 65 different languages spoken in the homes of our families. SPS offers our students a learning experience rich in cultural diversity and reflective of the global society in which they will work and live.
The mission of SPS is to provide an education that cultivates productive habits of mind, body and heart in every student.
SPS will be a learning organization that continuously improves its effective, innovative and transformational teaching and learning. We will challenge, inspire and prepare all students to be productive contributing members of society.
The mission and vision are part of the SPS ongoing long-term visioning and strategic planning process, which began in 2016. The district is finalizing five-year goals, objectives and initiatives that will have the greatest impact on student outcomes in support of the mission and vision.
Stamford Public Schools recognizes the successes and accomplishments that happen every day in our schools. Our District Strategic Plan builds upon this strong foundation and provides the strategies and framework to ensure further success. We are transforming into a learning organization capable of change and growth in which all students, teachers, parents—and the community—work collaboratively to ensure that every student is challenged, inspired and prepared to reach his/her maximum potential.
