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.

Honestly, I came into Stratford High School as a transfer student my junior year of high school from Hastings High School. The transition was from an easy academic level school (Hastings) to a semi college academic level school (Stratford). Even though it was a different environment, I immediately felt apart of a big community due to its diversity among students and being involved in different club activities and its well known sports teams. It was an amazing experience being a Stratford spartan and as a student who just graduated from Stratford, I look back at my past memories and realize how much I miss being a spartan.
Stratford High School not only has a very friendly and family-like community, but has a high level of academic success. This school welcomed me from the start, and is a school that I very much enjoy. Another great aspect of Stratford is the preparation for college. Stratford High School has excellent teachers that not only you can develop a friendly relationship, but teach you how to prepare yourself for college. Some of the classes provide you with the state requires to graduate, but over 90 percent of them make you want to school.
