One of the most important factors when considering a move is in which schools to enroll your children.  Middle and High schools enroll students from large areas but elementary schools do not. In attempts to keep class sizes small and offer the best curriculum, elementary schools limit their assigned areas. This makes choosing the right neighborhood even more important. Below is a list of the Stafford elementary schools to help you make your decision.
