Central Office

       The Town of South Windsor, was founded by English settlers in 1633 as part of Windsor and, in 1845, incorporated as a separate municipality. South Windsor is a community consisting of approximately 25,000 residents with 4,100 public school students. The school district is comprised of five elementary schools, one middle school serving grades 6-8, and one high school serving grades 9-12. Money magazine has ranked South Windsor as 38 out of 100 best small communities in which to reside in the United States. South Windsor Public Schools is fortunate to partner with committed parents, a dedicated board of education, and a supportive community.

The Central Offices are housed in the former Ellsworth Memorial High School at 1737 Main Street. Built in 1834 using stones and building materials from the Hartford Theological Institute, the school is named for Erastus Ellsworth who is largely responsible for placing the Theological Institute in South (East) Windsor. The portico of the school is from the chapel building of the Seminary. William Wood, benefactor of the Wood Memorial Library, donated the land and materials from the Seminary for the project.

The South Windsor Public Schools promotes an engaging and dynamic culture of learning that prepares students to achieve their own individual excellence.  Within an emotionally safe environment, educators will foster students' academic, social and personal growth.  Our students will demonstrate critical and creative thinking, self-direction, collaboration, adaptability, compassion and civic responsibility in an ever-changing global society.  (South Windsor Public Schools Vision Statement adopted by the Board of Education, April 9, 2013)
