The Mary. R Tisko Elementary School was named for Mary Resjan Tisko, who was born in the Resjan homestead on Main…More Street in 1908. She and her husband, Chester Tisko, were lifelong residents of Branford.
Tisko's fifty-five-year teaching career was culminated by the distinctive honor of being named Principal Emeritus of all elementary schools in Branford.
Today, the Mary R. Tisko school is led by Principal Mr. Mark Rabinowitz and serves nearly 500 elementary students from the area.
