Embracing a Challenge at Stratford School

At Stratford School, high expectations yield extraordinary results. Our advanced yet intentionally balanced curriculum starts as early as Preschool to inspire and nurture the minds and hearts of every student. From the outset, we simplify challenging concepts, then accelerate learning to enable our students to study ahead of grade level, develop a love of learning, and prepare for the future.  Our curriculum is created in thoughtful and meaningful ways to ignite curiosity, nurture exploration, and encourage inquiry.

From Preschool through 8th grade, Stratford’s curriculum is infused with sequential instruction in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics — “STEAM” — to help students develop a diverse set of problem-solving skills and talents they’ll need in today’s world. We accomplish this through a unique cross-disciplinary approach that enhances critical thinking, integrates ideas from multiple subjects, and ultimately expands student learning.

Beginning in Preschool, Stratford’s curriculum is designed to develop the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical building blocks. Hands-on, multi-sensory activities, including our Imaginative STEAM Play, encourage preschoolers to play and share with others, while developing their self-confidence, so each child discovers the joy and excitement of learning.

In Elementary, our accelerated core curriculum exceeds the National Standardized ERB Results and motivates students to become critical thinkers, innovative problem-solvers, and proficient writers. This balanced approach imparts students with not only a well-rounded education; it fosters the development of strong friendships, effective study skills, and blossoming self-confidence.

Middle School continues the Stratford tradition of excellence. We prepare and mentor students for placement in honors and advanced courses at top-tier private and public high schools. Stratford’s intentional approach to educating the whole child results in young adults who are gifted communicators, skilled and generous collaborators, and creative problem-solvers.

At Stratford, we combine traditional teaching styles with 21st century learning principles, intentionally integrate technology in engaging ways, and encourage confident thinking. Beyond the classroom, we help students discover and define their passions through a variety of extracurricular pursuits, personal enrichment activities, physical education, and time for free play.

Our caring and passionate teachers cultivate a fun and nurturing classroom environment, where high expectations encourage students to try new things with confidence and enthusiasm. They present a broad spectrum of learning opportunities. They engage students. They invite questions. They encourage students to collaborate. Consequently, students laugh a lot, and learn even more.

By harnessing the collective power of students, teachers, and administrators, this carefully designed approach, along with our commitment as educational leaders, helps students to excel. Stratford School prepares students to become the future generation of creative problem-solvers, imaginative innovators, and confident, insightful leaders.
