Stratford High School Reviews

Stratford is and has been a great choice to go to school. There is a place for everyone and solid developed options for anything you'd want to do. However SBISD has been placed in new administration which, frankly, sucks. If you had a younger child and are looking to attend, Don't. They're are moving administrators around ruining peoples lives and screwing up the schools in the process. People who work in other districts are wondering why there is "a mass exodus" of staff in SBISD. Run. Before it's too late. Also the parents here suck. Way too involved, and make people's lives miserable. All the district wants is to please the parents (who will be gone in a couple of years) instead of following the rules and having integrity.
Review Stratford High School
I have loved almost all of the time I've spent at Stratford because of the general attitude and atmosphere of the school. Students and teachers alike tend to be friendly and non-judgmental which allows each individual room to grow who they are and begin becoming who they will be. While there is plenty of encouragement and opportunity to be plugged into and successful, it remains your choice to take advantage of it. I've throughly enjoyed being a member and/or leader in various organizations and have felt welcomed and supported in every community I've been a part of. From what I've heard, this is spectacularly uncommon and I'm infinitely grateful for the time I've spent at Stratford America!
I've been wanting to join the fashion design club and on the school website they only meet up once a month. So on club day I signed up on the sign up sheet. But it seems like they never meet up. I've contacted the teacher sponsor of that club and always asked when there was going to be a meeting but she always said that'll be soon. But its second semester already and there hasn't been any club meeting. And the next club is Key club, a club thats supposed to be a volunteer group that helps out around the community. I'm Secretary of that club and I can tell you honestly no one does anything in that club we tell all the members all the activities we could do and less than 5 members of the club show up. There is 30 members in the club! It seems like a lot of the clubs are only there to be a resume builder, no one ever does anything for the good of their heart or is passionate about anything.
