Stratford School, part of Spring Education Group, is a leading independent WASC-accredited private school in California offering courses from preschool through 12th grade with a vision of creating a unique, multi-dimensional educational foundation for children. At Stratford School, we understand every child has his or her own interests and passions and contributes in their own way. Our proven program includes our STEAM-based curriculum that was recognized by the White House as a leader in early childhood STEAM education, and we are also the first California school to earn the Carnegie Science Seal of Excellence for STEM.

We are looking for an inspiring and dedicated 'First' Robotics Coach to join our exciting and developing new middle and high school. We are seeking someone who is looking for the challenge and flexibility of developing an award-winning robotics program from the ground up. Stratford students are all high-achieving, motivated, and innovative students looking to grow and make an impact. In our rookie year, we won 2nd place in our League championship. Stratford is looking for a coach who can not only keep up but enhance student passion for robotics, and lead the team through the FIRST Robotic competitions and other events.

By participating in Stratford Robotics, students will have a positive, growth-filled experience where they have the opportunity to mature mentally, emotionally, and socially. Through practice and competition, guided by seasoned coaches, students will build fundamental skills in engineering, design, and programming.

If you are excited about this opportunity to make a meaningful impact on our student's lives, we encourage you to apply.
