I attended Stamford Public schools from 1st grade to 12th grade. I had a great experience overall. I would recommend the idea of using a different food vendor with more salad choices so students can eat healthier. I think child hood obesity is on the rise and we need more awareness to this issue. I love the fact that Stamford provides nutritious lunch to kids throughout the summer. This will help students with better food choices instead of fast food. This will help students maintain a healthy weight.

Living in Fairfield County, it is easy to bury oneself in the white, wealthy culture of the area. However, Stamford is different, an escape if you will, from such societal ills. Stamford Public Schools facilitated in me becoming the independent, ambitious woman I am; it was not forced, nor shoved at me. I could take help if I felt I needed it, or excel on my own, it was my choice always, just as success is a choice. It is a choice of how hard you push yourself, how much you want to make your ambitions, your dreams into a tangible reality. However, Stamford has its woes, as any other district does. Yet, I love and thank it regardless.
Amazing experience formerly of Poughkeepsie School District Alum. Welcome was especially gracious, well represented, very polished and professional. Everybody smiling. Happy to be included.
