Welcome to Stafford County, and Stafford County Public Schools!
Stafford County Public Schools serves a diverse and mobile population of more than 30,000 students in 33 schools across a county that covers 280 square miles. Stafford County has a total resident population of 142,000 dispersed among approximately 43,000 households. SCPS is a high-performing school division as evidenced by all of its schools being fully accredited. Both parents and employees describe SCPS as a close-knit community that embraces and leads every child to success, no matter what the child’s background, educational experience, or nationality.
Stafford Schools is bordered to the north by Marine Corps Base Quantico. Many of our families live in Stafford County but commute not only to MCB Quantico, Fort Belvoir, and NSF Dahlgren, but also to other major installations in the National Capital Region. Stafford Schools hopes to make the school transition as smooth as possible for military families as they enter and/or exit the county. Highlighting Stafford County's devotion to military family friendly transitions, the following schools have received Virginia Purple Star Designation:
Anthony Burns Elementary School
Conway Elementary School
Falmouth Elementary School
Margaret Brent Elementary School
North Stafford High School
Rockhill Elementary School
Rocky Run Elementary School
Widewater Elementary School
