Stratford High School has been a good place to grow up. However, there are too many teachers who are not good at teaching (even if they do have a lot of knowledge) or barely know about their subject (often because they are coaches). The administration also punishes AP Students by forcing them to take AP exams even if they are unprepared in order to exempt the final in that course. School spirit at Stratford is great though! We love to support our sports teams. The fine arts department is also very strong, even if underappreciated by the rest of the school. The counselors and especially the post-secondary counselor are very helpful and invested in helping us succeed.

I very much enjoyed attending Stratford high school. The school lunches honestly have to be the only negative experience. I could go on about how I didn't like chemistry or how I'm not great in English, but these are classes I have to take.

In band, I am the principal horn player. Every year during our award-winning musicals, we have a live student orchestra, and I play solo horn in it. This upcoming December I get to perform a horn concerto with the entire orchestra as my accompaniment!

I am also involved in a unique program called the Academy of Science and Engineering, which entails coming up with and completing a senior capstone project. I'm building a PA speaker system!

I could go on about programs, but the teachers really make it worthwhile. I've had some boring teachers, but so has everyone. Some of my favorite teachers have been for subjects I didn't even care for, such as World History. The teachers loving what they do is what makes Stratford High School one of a kind.
Stratford is an extremely well-rounded school. We have our share of wealthy students, but we are still very socioeconomically diverse. Our athletics are above average; most teams make the playoffs almost every year, with a few sports frequenting the state finals. Academically, we are very strong without being to competitive. We offer an array of advanced AP and dual credit courses that prepare students very well for college. Our sports are all above average, not to mention of extremely prestigious musical theater department. At Stratford, there is truly a place for every student, and students are encouraged to get involved in as many activities as possible. The lines between cliques are incredibly blurred, and almost all the students are very accepting of each other. Personally, I'm a cheerleader, but I have friends in almost every other sport and activity.
