Welcome to North Stratfield

NSS is a wonderful neighborhood school filled with caring children and adults.  We work together as a community of learners to focus on the whole child.  NSS staff members work with parents as partners in the educational journey of our students. 

We ensure a balanced educational program that is rigorous yet nurturing.  The arts are very important at NSS as well and we encourage our students to participate in our many music and art programs both in school and after.   The Fairfield curriculum is designed around a focus on higher thinking skills and the teachers at NSS work diligently to provide differentiated strategies to ensure success for each and every learner.  We greatly benefit from our strong parental involvement and especially active PTA.     

As our school song says

“NSS is truly a place of friendship and joy where the happiness and fun never ends!"
