Stratford High School Reviews

The teachers and coaches I have had over the years are people I admire and respect. They are people I know I can trust and come to if I need something. They challenge students to think for themselves and defend their opinions. Over the years, I have grown into a more confident, self-assured person because of the environment they make and I can't imagine who I would be without them. This past volleyball season is a testament to that. Our season was one of physical and mental toughness that I would have never developed if it wasn’t for my teammates and coach. One thing that I wanted to change was the cooperation the administration had with its students. It was sometimes difficult to work with them to set up events, but we just got a new principal this past month and he is great! He is passionate about Stratford and wants to hear what the students have to say. I can’t wait to see what my last semester holds.

Curriculum at this school is wonderful! I have come to learn so much in my years here. The issue are the teachers I have had. I have only ever had one teacher that remotely cared about me or my understanding of the subject. Every other teacher couldn’t care less. In regard to sports, they are atrocious. I may not be the fastest or most talented player, but I always give it my best. To these coaches, that doesn’t matter whatsoever. All I would get is a “good job” here and there. NEVER would I actually get a question answered or get coached in any sense of the word. Fellow students are very friendly and I have never ever met a bully that caused me any kind of suffering. The school is what it is. I simply cannot wait to graduate and leave this school, as my time has been mostly filled with frustration and stress. I appreciate Stratford most for the curriculum it provides, and not much more.
Something that is very present at Stratford is the community. There is a reason the school and all it's programs fall under "Stratford America." There are many opportunities available, but sometimes it might be more difficult for low-income students to access said opportunities. There is a clear divide between what diversity looks like in AP/ Pre-AP classrooms and grade-level classrooms. I think can do more to encourage students of low income to challenge themselves in rigorous classes by pushing for them to succeed. There is clear contempt for grade-level students which can sometimes be discouraging in regards to academics. As long as students communicate well with teachers, they are often willing to help. Overall, I really like Stratford but like everything, there is always room for growth.
