Moved to this town so our kids could attend this school. We have a child utilizing IEP and the school has absolutely gone above and beyond!

we love Strafford School and the wonderful teachers and staff. We moved to this town for this school system and have not been let down! We have a child on an IEP and could not be happier with the care and understanding we have been shown towards his needs!
