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 high school is very student oriented, besides the food, everything is available to take advantage of. The almost every teacher goes above and beyond to help students excel, the faculty however is merely abiding by the rules and goes no further to help students because they cannot be inconvenienced. The Club opportunities are limitless, and I would confidently say 70% of the student body is involved in some type of extra curricular. There are police officers but they are older men, and the doors are opened by students for anyone at any time, which seems a little too easy. College readiness depends on the individuals academic coursework, but any Stratford AP student is definitely ready for college and the coursework.
