A little About Us
Stratford School is an independent private school founded on the belief that education is a significant influence in the life of a child. Our mission is to create a school community that inspires children to realize their full potential, while providing a safe and nurturing school environment. To support our mission, we bring together principals, teachers, and parents who are passionate about education. 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. Together, we provide the best possible learning environment for our students to achieve outstanding results.
A little About You
You thrive in a team environment where collaboration is encouraged and you are able to participate in hands-on exercises. Solving complex problems with students is your passion. You are a leader in the classroom, but provide opportunities for students to step up and lead you. You have high expectations of your students, but make sure challenges are supported with warmth and encouragement.
You fashion yourself as an innovator and enjoy collaborating with others. You allow students to be themselves, and to accomplish more than they ever imagined.
A Typical Day
The integration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) into all aspects of our curriculum allows students to explore and excel in areas requiring core knowledge, as well as their individual passions such as musical theater, foreign language, and creative writing. Students begin to understand what they love most about school and learning, and realize what individual passions they will pursue in high school, college, and as a career. Our students understand that they are part of something greater than themselves.
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.
A teacher shall have a BA or BS degree from an accredited or approved college or university.
