Ashford is a small community in the northeast section of Connecticut, also known as the “Quiet Corner.” Our children have the opportunity to thrive in a school with grades PreK-8 in one building.
Our motto is “We Optimize Learning For all” (WOLF).
Our mission statement is:  To present a school district that supports ALL students in achieving their highest educational and personal potential as productive citizens of the diverse, multicultural, and global 21st century community in which they live.
To achieve our mission we utilize a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) approach.  STEAM is how we empower students to use all of their learning to think about the world, solve problems and show what they know.  Ashford School values a core set of learning and life skills that we refer to as Habits of Mind.  These are the skills that help to prepare students for success and for solving problems in their careers and daily lives, both at home and at school.
