Welcome to the Litchfield School District—SAU 27.

While Litchfield is a small district, its schools are vibrant communities where caring and talented staff and administrators guide and support the growth and development of our students. Our students are successful in the classroom, in the arts, and on the athletic field. Please take the time to visit the individual school websites for more information.

The town of Litchfield is served by three schools of roughly 500 students each:

Griffin Memorial Elementary school serves students in grades K-4; 
Litchfield Middle School serves students in grades 5-8; and
Campbell High School serves students in grades 9-12.
 
Best regards!

What is the Cost to Educate Students in Litchfield?
Have you wondered what it costs to educate public school students in Litchfield?
 
Much research has been done with regard to the cost per pupil and the capacity to pay for that education in Litchfield and districts that are similar in size and valuation.  The data in the presentation posted here includes comparisons with the state and districts of similar size to Litchfield with regard to cost per pupil, equalized valuation per pupil, as well as the median household income and income per capita.
 
 
Please contact the SAU Office at 603-578-3570 with any questions you may have or if you would like to request a copy of the data as presented.
