Stafford County Virginia Private and Public Schools

For the 2014-2015 school year, the enrollment is 27,462 students and facilities include 30 schools – 17 elementary schools, 8 middle schools, and 5 high schools. Stafford County Public Schools rank 25/131 school districts statewide. Although the school division has experienced rapid growth, the county has maintained its commitment to educational excellence. Support received from the Board of Supervisors and the community have enabled the school division to maintain, improve, and expand school facilities, transportation offerings, and instructional programs. Commitment to an excellent student-teacher ratio has enhanced quality instruction and attention for our children. Significant technology advances ensure students have the opportunity to learn practical work skills in modern facilities. We moved from Prince William County to Stafford County during 1991 for affordable housing and better schools. After our 3 children graduated from Brooke Point and North Stafford high schools, we wouldn’t give Stafford County Public Schools a perfect grade. But we also have few complaints.

Stafford Training School – The Rowser Building

The school was built by the Public Works Administration and was the only African American high school in Stafford County operating during the Civil Rights Movement. For a number of years, before the 1950 expansions, 11th and 12th grade students were transported to The Walker-Grant High School in Fredericksburg, because the other high school in the county was for whites only. The Stafford County School Board paid tuition and transportation to attend this accredited high school at Fredericksburg.

The Stafford Training School, also known as H.H. Poole Junior High School, H.H. Poole High School: Stafford Vocational Annex, Rowser Educational Center, and the Rowser Building, is a historic school building for African American students located at Stafford, Stafford County, Virginia. The original section was built in 1939, and enlarged in 1943, 1954, 1958, and 1960. After the 1954 addition, the facility consisted of: eight standard classrooms, a principal’s office, a clinic and teacher’s lounge, library, homemaking department, cafeteria kitchen, combination auditorium-gymnasium, and modern rest rooms.

The Rowser Building was built in 1939 by the Public Works Administration. It was dedicated as the Stafford Training School for Negroes and became the elementary and junior high school for black students during segregation. The construction of a single story rectangular cinderblock building became possible after African-American parents raised money to buy the land for a school under the organization of Henry Harrison Poole. As the Stafford County Supervisor of Negro Schools, Mr. Poole coordinated several black parent-teacher organizations named the ‘County League’ to raise the necessary funds to buy 5 acres of land in order to begin construction.

After a 1954 building addition which included modern heating, flush toilets, and 2 new classrooms; black students could attend 9th and 10th grades at the Stafford Training School, and a 1958 addition added 2 more classrooms, lockers, and showers. This allowed 11th and 12th grade black students to stop taking buses to Walker-Grant School in Fredericksburg, and all black students attending high school in Stafford County were now educated at the Stafford Training School building which became H. H. Poole Middle School in 1954.

The integration of public schools in Stafford County began in 1961 beginning with elementary school students Cynthia and Dorothia Montague successfully enrolling at Stafford Elementary School. Seven years later the U. S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Brown v. Board of Education. Stafford County voluntarily integrated all public schools in 1964.

In August 1962, the first high school integration in the Fredericksburg region occurred when 11th and 12th grade classes at H.H. Poole were transferred to Stafford High School. In 1966, H.H. Poole was closed and opened the same year as the Stafford Vocational Annex which was integrated. In 1976, the building was dedicated as the Rowser Educational Center after the death of Ella Rowser who dedicated 31 years as an African-American educator and principal at H. H. Poole. In 1981, the building became the offices of the Stafford County School Board, and the Superintendent of Stafford County Schools. Stafford County Board of Supervisor meetings were held in the school auditorium until the completion of the George L. Gordon Jr. Government Center next to the court house. In 2003, the Rowser Building was transferred to Stafford County Department of Parks and Recreation. The building is used for offices, and once more as an educational facility with instructional classes open to the public.

On December 13, 2012 the Stafford Training Center became listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register. On February 5, 2013 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Stafford African-American History Mural is hanging at the Rowser Building detailing the struggles and triumphs of African-Americans in Stafford County during the past 350 years.
