Stafford Elementary

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

Hello! My name is Melissa Scott and I am honored to serve as Principal at Stafford Elementary. I began my career in education in 2011 and have been part of Abilene ISD since 2014. I received my undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University and my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership at the University of Texas in Arlington. In Abilene ISD, I have had the pleasure and opportunity to work at both Reagan Elementary and Clack Middle School.

At Stafford Elementary, we are dedicated to academic excellence and preparing each child to be successful. We have the hardest-working group of educators that are passionate about ensuring that all students learn at high levels. We are here for you and your family. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns!

Stafford Elementary sits on the corner of North 10th and Pioneer Drive, adjacent to the Lee Athletic Complex. Stafford serves a diverse population of approximately 450 students. Built in 1961, Stafford was later expanded to its current layout.

We are dedicated to providing an excellent education for our students. We are also dedicated to teaching the virtues necessary for students’ success, enabling them to make a positive contribution to our country through things such as honesty, respect, and pride in a job well-done. We realize that family, community, church, and school all play a part in a child’s education.

We invite everyone to come and see the wonderful things that are happening at Stafford Elementary.
