This school has a lot of good points and a few bad, however, has the potential to be a great school! This is a smaller school still offering programs that others have cut due to funding with a majority of teachers that still care about their students and involved parents. I have seen my share of school systems having moved around with my job. Believe me when I say that Stafford is a cut above the rest. Every time that I have had a concern of any nature, it has been met with a willingnes to do whatever it took to fix the issue, with the exception of the Principal, which someone else here noted as well. It is this parents opinion that Mr. Lewis has been in his position for too long and has become complacent. I believe that with a simple change to that one position, this school has the potential to be a great school! I have appreciated the willingness of the staff to lead my child in the right direction as well as the feeling of belinging to a community of involved adults, I simply wish that there were better leadership.

The inefficiency of this school and its staff is mind boggling. They really come across as they are just there to collect a pay check. I don't understand how you can get a note sent home, an email and an automated phone call for parents who's children are involved in athletics and each form of contact states DIFFERENT times, dates, and fees. How can they have such miscommunication in their ranks?

The principal has zero communication with the students. I have never seen such low student moral at a school. Students do not feel that their voices are heard by the administration. Student leaders have tried to improve moral among the student body by suggesting activities that will get students involved and raise their spirits but are quickly shut down by the principal. I have attended a few functions at the school to show my support for the students. Unfortunately I did not see the principal or assistant principals. Pretty sure if I noticed then the students are also noticing the lack of support.

This school has mediocre teachers and their standards for education are unfathomably low. My son had honor roll at his last school and is now an average student at best. Do not enroll here

Worst School Ever!!!! The guidance and administration do horrible jobs at listening to the student and do not care if you have any type of concerns about a teacher. This school is most definitely discriminates against students of other cultures.

I love this school! My teen loves this place...He is involved in a great sports program, and he is no longer bullied as he was in Spotsy. My daughter also goes there, and she is impressed with the choir and the amazing teachers and principal...she says they always try to help with anything they can, and they have nice kids as a result. I recommend this school highly to anyone looking for a great high school.

The best Principal in the system who motivates the Staff to do their best and this is reflected in the students increased performance.

I have three children in Stafford High School. The school system is strained, but I believe the school makes the best with what they have. It is your typical public school system these days ... strained and under-funded. My children have done well and are looking forward to and planning for college.

I attended this school for two years, which were my junior and senior year. I enjoyed being a student at Stafford high school. I learned a lot and the teachers were amazing. I ended up graduating with a 4.0 GPA.

I spent my first two years of high school here before the re-districting that came with colonial forge and my subsequent transfer. I went on my only high school field trips at south stafford, one was on a fishing boat in the chesapeake (catching specimens for marine biology), the other was a day trip to the metropolitan museum of art and the moma (join the nahs!). The art trip is what inspired me to earn a degree in art; i have one semester left for my bfa in art education. I had some very average teachers and i had some teachers who were so good, i didn't realize how much i was learning until i was gone. My freshman year in honor's english was amazing as well, due to my teacher s spunk and emphasis on organization.
