Superintendent's Message

On behalf of the Strafford R-VI School District, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our district.

Our committed staff of teachers, administrators, and support personnel serve over 1,400 PK-12 students. Strafford Schools has developed partnerships with a supportive community, vibrant PTO, and a School Board committed to public outreach: all are key elements in our school district's equation for sustaining strong communication and interaction with all of our patrons.

Our mission and vision for Strafford Schools consist of developing potential in every student by providing a learning environment conducive to developing mature, responsible individuals who contribute to our changing society.

Everything we do is designed to create a "Culture of Learning" emphasizing that every student should achieve their maximum potential. As your superintendent of schools, my goal is to further solidify a community partnership and unite us in our mission to help all students thrive. Thank you for your support of our Strafford R-VI students and schools.

If I can ever be of assistance or service to you individually, please do not hesitate to call or come by my office.

Dr. Mark D. Hedger,

Superintendent of Schools
