Although many high schools are very divided in many ways, Statford High School has given me a sense of family and unity.
Whenever Hurricane Harvey hit our school and families from our school had been affected by this storm. During Harvey everyone got together to help each other clean up the houses and neighborhoods.
At Stratford we have a sense of unity and not just when a catostrophic storm emerge. This year one of our fellow Spartans in the drill team was diagnosed with cancer, and it’s crazy how united the whole school became once again to show their support for her.
Although high school can be challenging with all the school work and extra curricular activitie, Stratford has shown me what it means to be a part of a community and most importantly of a family with many different people. I wouldn’t change this school or any of the experiences that have come along with it for anything in the world because Spartan Pride never die!

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 transferred into Stratford High School my sophomore year. The reason for my transfer was their outstanding playhouse. The academics there were challenging and demanding, they pushed me into becoming a better student. I had high expectations for the extracurricular which were met. Ever since my time at Stratford, I have been involved in 4 Playhouse Productions. I have also been involved in some after school clubs including their American Sign Language club. The environment there is my favorite part of the school. Everyone is so nice and considerate. I think it's safe to say that this high school really is a bully free zone. Going into my senior year at Stratford, I can't wait to complete my journey through this school. One thing I would change about Stratford is really the physical school itself. The school has so many students but it's very small: you can't walk the hallways without touching the person next to you.
