Our purpose at Stratford is to enhance student learning with creative and energetic educators who share their love of learning with students and colleagues.
A little about us

Our mission is to create a school community that inspires children to realize their full potential while providing a safe and nurturing school environment.

Stratford offers a balanced and unparalleled curriculum from preschool through eighth grade with an emphasis in the areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) that incorporates music, physical education, foreign language, and social skills development. Our goal is to prepare students to become creative problem solvers, innovators, and confident, compassionate leaders.

A typical day
Elementary school is where the foundation of the future starts. Our teachers allow students to be themselves, find their passions and stretch themselves to accomplish more than ever imagined. At Stratford Schools, our balanced approach provides our students with a positive and nurturing learning environment, combined with a rich and challenging curriculum.
Teachers who are inspired in their approach, who stretch the boundaries of learning, are typically the most successful. We encourage enthusiasm and support our instructors to demonstrate the thirst for knowledge to our students.
We are looking for teachers that stretch beyond textbook teaching and bring together instruction methods that will ultimately help a student delve deeper into a subject.
