Superintendent's Message

 

Thank you for visiting Windsor Public Schools’ website. Windsor is a town that takes incredible pride in its school system.  In Windsor, younger students are separated by geographical area into one of two Prek-2 schools, Oliver Ellsworth School or Poquonock School.  Oliver Ellsworth students then attend John F. Kennedy School for grades 3 through 5, while Poquonock students attend Clover Street School for grades 3 through 5.  All district students join together for grades 6 through 8 at Sage Park Middle School. Windsor High School services all district students in grades 9 through 12. For any questions about which school your child would attend, please visit the Registration page under the Departments section of our website or call or visit our Welcome Center at the LPW Community Center, 601 Matianuck Avenue.  

Windsor Public Schools offer a comprehensive educational program in a caring and supportive environment that celebrates the diversity of our students and community.  Windsor Board of Education believes in offering a truly free and appropriate education to over 3,300 students who are served in our schools and the over 3,900 students we maintain educational responsibility for.  The Board’s stated mission of “developing the genius in every child and creating lifelong learners” is evident every day in our schools.

Windsor High School offers over 200 different courses with 18 athletic teams and 26 extra curricular programs.  Students are encouraged to challenge themselves with a strong system of academic and social and emotional supports in place. Both Sage Park and Windsor High School maintain accreditation through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).  Students at Sage Park Middle School are placed in one of three teams for each grade level which ensures a small and supportive environment. Over 95% of students at Sage Park Middle School participate in an afterschool activity during the school year. Windsor elementary students receive rigorous instruction based on curriculum aligned to state standards.  Opportunities for involvement such as instrumental strings starting in grade 1 are plentiful in Windsor. Thank you for your interest in Windsor Public Schools and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask any of our dedicated staff members.
