Mr. Scott Clayton - Principal

Welcome to Scofield Magnet Middle School.  Scofield is a truly a special place and I couldn’t be more proud to be the principal.  A little about me:

I graduated from Western CT State University with a BA in History.  I was three credits short of having a minor in music performance.  Maybe someday I’ll take that piano class.  After earning my BA, I entered graduate school at the University of Bridgeport and earned a Masters in Secondary Education.  Following graduate school I enlisted into the CT Army National Guard and served for nearly eight years.  I began my teaching career at Rippowam Magnet Middle School, which later evolved into Scofield.  I am so thankful to have been hired by the Magnet Middle founding Principal, Dr. Karley Meltzer.  Along the way I earned my 6th Year Certificate of Advanced Studies in Educational Leadership from Sacred Heart University.  Shortly thereafter I was appointed Dean of Students and then Assistant Principal of Newtown High School in Sandy Hook, CT.  After many years in Newtown, the opportunity presented itself at Scofield and I was so thankful to be given the opportunity to lead the best school in the city.  I returned to school a few years ago and earned my Superintendent’s License from Central CT State University.  I hope to complete my Doctorate in the coming years.  My wife and I have been Blessed with four wonderful children.  On any given weekend you can find us at soccer, lacrosse, dance/show rehearsals, etc.  In whatever free time I have, I enjoy competing in triathlons.  I have done numerous sprint and Olympic distance, six 70.3 half-iron distances and one full 140.6 Ironman distance.  My goal is to compete in another 140.6 race in the summer of 2018.
