My son has been with this school ever since preschool. This was his first exposure to the world of formal education and I must say he is as happy as we are. It's been over 2 years now and it was absolutely a wonderful experience interacting with the teachers, the principal, the admins in the office room. I like the good mix of academics,music and art ensuring a good balance is maintained. The best thing for me was to see my kid perform so wonderfully along with other kids during the spring/winter programs. Also,the fact that they encouraged parent participation left me with such wonderful memories,that I can share with my son,years later.All in all, we love being a part of this wonderful school.

My kid goes to this school. It's an ok school, but not great. We think the school has some issues, if they fix it - it will be great. The teachers in Stratford have kids enrolled in the same school. Those kids get favorable. One of the teachers uses kids in her class to check on her kid in another class(like sending special lunch box every day). The teachers do not provide more challenging stuff for kids. The public schools in Cupertino do more for the kids than this school. We are not coming back next year.

I have two children attending Stratford this year, one in K and one in Pre-K. I am extremely happy with the quality of education and care that my children receive at Stratford. Each child has two teachers in class and all four of the teachers that my children have this year are fantastic. My children are learning at a rate that I did not anticipate - they are so far ahead of where I was at their age. They love their teachers and their school. All of the other students and parents I have met have been happy as well. We had intended to only send our children to Stratford until they were both elementary school age but now we are torn because we like the school so much, we may keep them in Stratford for longer. I wish every school in the country were as good as Stratford so that all students could have a supportive and challenging environment to learn in. And I love all of the cute little Stratford themed songs they learn at school and are found singing to themselves while playing (Stratford dinos, roarr roarr!).

Terrific elementary school. The curriculum is easily one grade ahead of comparable grades at local public schools. A very attractive and compelling alternative to schools such as Challenger. Very approachable and professional principal. Among teachers, Mrs Chadha is especially well organized and kind to kids. Highly recommended for a well rounded 21st century education.

This used to be a great school last year when my son went to PS. This year after a management change the place bacame gloomy and unwelcoming. The principal is very rude. I've seen her talk to her staff in a very demeaning way. I guess that explains why the teachers are so unfriendly this year. My son doesn't like her He says she scares him. If I worked here I would be scared of her too. I'm so glad that the elementary principal is amazing I will recommend this campus for elementary but not for preschool .

Both my children went to stratford for preschool and preK and we feel it was a wonderful introduction to school.They got a good foundation in letter recognition,reading and math in a stressfree and fun way.The teachers are very responsible and care for the all round personality development of the children so the children are well behaved,smart,hygenic and responsible. They gain a lot of general knowledge about science .They learn lovely songs and presentation skills through their music class and performances.Parents are closely in the loop about what happens in school.Overall,I was very happy with the stratford AM programs for my children.

My four year old son moved to Stratford De Anza from Los Angeles. The school has went beyond our expectation over the last six months. First few weeks, my son missed his old friends but now he looks forward to every day fun. The school is built upon solid academic foundation and employs well researched principles as the kids imbibe new concepts such as patterns and phonics. The teachers pay great attention to every kid and adjusts the material according to the child while encouraging them to do their best and maintaining high bar. The school Principal ensures highest standards are maintained in every class through her own increased class participation and constant parent feedback. The program structure has good mix of learning and play. The kids get along really well. Leadership opportunities are provided where kids get to present their mini project to the class. The teachers are cordial and work hard with the kids on correct letter/number writing and phonics. I highly recommend DeAnza park facility to the parents.

I am a parent at the Stratford - Sunnyvale De Anza Campus and would like to share my positive experience at this school. My son has been at this campus for about a year and he is a happy camper. The teachers are dedicated, helpful and make time for meetings and generally have an open door policy. The principal and vice principal work as a team and believe in a hands-on approach and have a pretty good feel of what's going on. The school is well rounded ie both academics and extra curricular activities are offered and the school culture is mostly participative as opposed to being competitive. We are very happy here and wish the school well.

unfotunately, we had really bad experince in this school, in my openion, the k-teachers are unqulified, and can not help to kids. they ask you to work hard at home and send the student ready to school. so I ask them what you do and why you charge us if we have to make them ready. You pay $1350 for lazy teiachers who don't want to spend time with your kids. wasting money. and also new Principal doesn't know how to interact with kids as a prenicipal. Not recommended at all

I cannot agree more with the previous comment. Teachers just do their routine and the pre-school principal is more focussed on enrollment rather than on improving the kid. The teachers do not help the kids get better and they just go about their timetable (I was able to audit their classes twice while it was in session) and they always get praised whether they did a good job or not. They know how to project to Indian parents. I do not recommend this school at all

Teacher quality is very varied. It is like a lottery and in the name of positive reinforcement they commend the kid whether the kid did a good job or not. Science program is not good and hands-on experiments lacking. Kids learn a lot but do not retain in later years. Too much hand holding and not preparing the kid for real life. I will not recommend this school at all

My son was enrolled in 2009 for pre-school at De Anza campus. It was not a good experience as the teacher always says, he had a wonderful day. End of the year, the report did not say anything. In the middle of the year, the teacher was recommending for morning session. The teacher was more inclined towards the kids, who can do things without direction. That should not be the case with students for whom it is the first experience at school. My kid had a very bad year without learning any skills or development. During that summer, my wife did the coaching and he was able to say numbers, colors, shapes, etc. I will blame in on the teacher for my sons poors performance. During my son's pre-K school year (2010-11), Ms.Suchitra Raj (Suchi), the teacher was very good. She infact made, my son come out of shyness and start interacting with his friends. My son started to sing, dance and all other things along with the class. Me and my wife give credit to the teacher for this kind of sea change in sons development. I rate it as the best year for my son.

I have been a parent at Stratford School for the past 10 years. I am extremely satisfied with the quality of education, safe and nurturing environment, convinient campus locations and loving staff. I have looked into other private schools for my three children and could not find a better and well balanced school than Stratford. Now that my two older children are in college and high school, I continue to watch my youngest child blossom at Stratford. I highly recommend this school to any potential parent that's looking for quality!

I think this school just want the money. No matter how you change your payment plan all the money you have put in is nonrefundable plus they still charged you 2 months more. I think their teachers are OK, I'm not very impressed but the Principal is not that professional especially for P-Kindergarten school at Fremont Curtis. Now I know they are opening a new campus site but I prefer switch my child to the other school that the payment charge is more reasonable. I would recommend you all that chose the Ten plan only and give them the check not the credit card. Believe me, so you won't get surcharge.

This is a terrific school with excellent teachers, and a very highly competent, customer-service oriented staff. My son is in his second year at Stratford DeAnza Park, and we are very pleased with his progress and the support we get from his teachers and school administrators. We have already enrolled for next year, which I never thought I would be doing because I am both very frugal and already live within the Cupertino School District bounds. So, our re-enrollment is saying a lot about how we feel about this school; even though my son would receive a very fine public school education, we choose to send him here. Needless to say, we have extremely high standards for our son's education, and Stratford DeAnza Park is exceeding them in every way.

My daughter and I, love this campus and the school programs. She enjoys her learning and friendship with other students. She loves to go to school and always asks if she can stay a little longer when I pick her up. The principal is always available to answer any questions or concerns I may have and the office administrators always greet parents in a friendly way and ready to help. This is my daughter s 7th year in this campus and I believe the quality of education and the safe environment Stratford provides is worth every dollar, as well as my 2 hour commute every day.

Both of my children have attended school at Stratford from pre-school (PS/PK) into Elementary. Currently, they are completing 3rd and 1st grades. We are very involved in their education and know most of the teachers and staff. This is more than a school; it is a community of educators, students and parents. The staff is wonderful, particularly the principal, who knows every child by name. The curriculum is challenging, but that is what we are paying for. The teachers care about the students, and work hard to keep them engaged and on-track. The program includes PhysEd, Music, Language and Art, as well as strong Math, Science, History and Grammar. Stratford is a huge step-up from the local public schools.

Some parents complain about the tuition, but the quality of education and the safe environment Stratford has, is worth every dollar! We are definitely coming back next year.

Stratford School is a warm, parent and student friendly school. I love their approach to education - very high academic levels achieved through an exciting and engaging teaching style. I agree that education isn't (and shouldn't be) all about fun but if the students are engaged and find the subject matter fascinating (due to teacher's attention-grabbing presentation), if the teachers are enthusiastic about what they are doing, the children are more likely to truly enjoy school. My 1st grader LOVES going to school, including homework! Her teachers (core, P.E., Spanish and Computer) are highly experienced, very well educated, and love to teach and it shows.

My son can't wait to get to school and doesn't want to leave. A far cry from his past pre-school, where he would cry and not want to go. His teachers are caring and very energetic and play with the kids! Being at that De Anza Park, feels like you re walking back in time, the way school use to be, FUN! The after school extended care is also very fun and the staff is amazingly energetic (even that late in the day!) The entire staff is nice and friendly.

Stratford s strengths are: high academic standards, great faculty that works as a team to give individual attention to students that allows children to be challenged at all levels. Spanish, Art, Computer, Music and PE are taught by specialty teachers in each subject. Both of my children love attending Stratford School! My preschooler is learning to read while having fun and my fourth grader is doing great as well. Both principals are nice, approachable and care so much about the safety of our children. Thank you Ms. Neda and Ms. Tate for creating an enriching environment for my children.

I am so happy to have a wonderful school for my two children. Not only the teachers are nice and caring but I have to share with all the parents about the preschool principal, Ms. Neda who has been a great help to my children ever since they joined de anza park campus. She is so sensitive to my children s' needs. I saw Ms. Neda at the Children's Discover Museum tonight and she came up to us and hugged my kids and spent some time with us even though she had her family with her. I was very satisfied with the de anza campus to begin with but tonight gave me a confirmation that my children are definitely cared for not only by their teachers but by their principal. I couldn't be happier!

She keeps bring us surprise not only on the academic side, but also the social skills. I have talked with a few parents with kids in different grade. We are all amazed.

I switched my son from one of the 'rigorous academic' private schools he had attended for pre-school, kindergarten and first grade. Couldn't have made a better move. Academics on par (and in some areas more in depth) with what we left but the kids and parents are happier and far more friendly. This school caters to teaching the 'whole' child...sports, art, music, foreign language as well as the basics. Director and Principal stress community, family and respect for self and others. Plus, they accept parent input unlike school we left!

We have two children at Stratford and could not be more delighted with the school. Our children are challenged academically and are being taught to think outside the box and how to analyze issues. As a result, the children are engaged and really happy to be attending the school. The art, science, music, language and PE programs are fantastic and part of an integrated curriculum as opposed to being tacked onto a busy day. We genuinely feel fortunate that our children are getting this amazing education at the same time that we have met a great group of fellow parents.

My son has only been at Stratford for 3 months and I am absolutely thrilled with his teachers, curriculum, principals, extended care program activities, and the friendly parents. They truly provide a well-rounded experience. The teachers and resource staff at the deanza campus are caring and fun-loving as well as firm. What I like most about the preschool program is that they don't put pressure on my child to catch up with the class since my son just joined recently. The gates in the classroom and the parkinglot ia reassuring that my child is safe and this school cares for the safety of my son and the others. I had the pleasure of meeting the principal during my tour and everything she said about Stratford is true. I am very satisfied at this campus and most importantly, my son is having a lot of fun!

From the day I stepped foot on the campus at an open house, I have felt nothing but comfort in knowing my child would be taken care of emotionally, mentally and physically. The teachers, admins, and all the principals are an incredibly caring group of individuals with the student's best interests at heart. Being a full time parent, my mind is at ease knowing my children are being taken care of! The academics are challenging and the character building philosophy is essential in developing an outstanding student. I now have two children benefiting from the excellent education Stratford School provides, as well as the wonderful community of friends we are making along the way. Thanks De Anza campus.

What would I do without Stratford School? My family moved in the bay area nine months ago and as I startted loking into preschool programs for my baby girl, i came across Stratford in sunnyvale. I was not only impressed with the campus, curriculum and the preschool principal; but also got a tour from the preschool principal, Miss Neda. How often do you get a personal tour from thte school principal? My baby girl is enrolled in the full time preschool classroom and being a working mom, my mind is at ease that she is in great hands. Her loving teachers are amazing. They are nurturing and funny. Stratford is definitely the school for my baby girl and we are definitely coming back next year for pre-kindergarten and years after.

Our daughter is currently attending this Stratford school (2009/2010), 3 half-days a week. Its costly but after checking out other options, we think its worth it. I never feel like she's going into an unsafe or overcrowded environment. I like the preschool cirriculum. There are plenty of staff around. The playground is huge and in good maintenance. The school grounds and classrooms are clean and orderly. The teachers answer questions/phone calls/emails right away. I've seen the principal and other top staff walking around, not just holed up in their offices. Everyone is accessible if there are any problems. We like it so much we priority enrolled her back into this same location for the 2010/11 school year. Its a great intro to the school system and uses positive reinforcement. I never have to 'drag' her to class.

Stratford Rocks! It is one of the best private school in the Bay Area. The teachers are well trained and the Principal friendly and helpful. Everyone is very professional. It is a school for the academically advanced kids so if your child is not up to par, it can be a challenging and dissatisfying. Parents are very competitive, not the teachers, not the students, its the parents. Sometimes too pushy. But it is how the worls is so here is a snse of the real world and globalization. Myu child made made friends mostly whose families originate from the continent of Asia. All in all, it's a great school.

I have to say that I am 'in love' with Stratford. I am not only a parent of 2 Stratford children, but I am a staff member as well. My child started kindergarten this year, and I am amazed with the things that the class is learning. The teachers are so kind and loving. The school s intentions are good, and always in the best interest of the children; they always come first!!! If you have an issue with something, you can go to the principal or teacher and can be assured they will do whatever they can to help you. It hurts me to see such negative things about the school. It is important to remember when choosing a school that often the customers who are satisfied with the school do not share their positive experiences on websites. Book a tour and see for yourself why I truly love Stratford!

Startford is a great school. I went to public school in the 70s and it was a terrible experience. I'm frankly quite jealous of my son. The kids are well behaved and fairly advanced. My son is not stressed out by the course work. He finds it challenging and stimulating. If I have any complaints, it's that Stratford doesn't have all the amenities that are found in public schools. However, the level of education is superb. I really like Ms. Tate and think she's doing a great job. Special kudos to Ms. Menezes and Ms. Comerford for the great job they did. Yes, it costs money, but you get what you pay for.

My son used to go to Deanza park and I recently switched him to Washington Park. I find that the method of teaching is very different between the campuses. Also, there is difference in social and school events. I like the school and its academic program, but worry that all kids may not be getting the same kind of development. For example, his old teacher would encourage more self-esteem activities and talk. His new teacher does not do any such thing.

My kids attended Stratford school and I have puuled both kids out. I was very unhappy with the academics and the teacher quality.My kids have attended for 5 years . They proclaim kids work on computers, but not much is covered. The same is true for Spanish. After 5 years, 99% of the class does not know how to speak more than a couple of senetences.English, a major subject is not covered well. Writing skills overall are very week. Plus, it's an expensive school compared to what you are getting or if you compare it to other academic schools.

Stratford has a healthy environment, well rounded curriculum and a balanced culture. Stratford build future responsible citizens, and Stratford supports end to end to build, strong responsible citizens for the world, why do I say world? Because Stratford provides education for multicultural kids, I strongly believe that one day Stratford will be world-wide. I would like to give my special thank you to Mrs. Sherry Adams, her vision, philosophy and colossal support that has helped Stratford become one of the finest educational & multi cultural schools in Bay Area.

My previously shy daughter started school at Stratford one year ago. I was thrilled to see how quickly her confidence grew and how much she loved learning. At age 3 she can read two letter words and is working on three letter words, learning about critical thinking and math skills. More importantly her teachers are so warm and loving, ever day she walks into class she feels special, one of the teachers will rush up to her and say good morning and talk about what they will do that day. I had her in several different day cares/preschools before but Stratford is by far the best! I have always felt 100% comfortable leaving my baby with the school, I know she will be well takes care of physically and emotionally, a dream for a working mom (-:

Previously we were happy with this school but are now considering sending our children to another school. Recently, our preschooler was left unattended in a classroom and was found by a parent. The teacher who did this, was promoted. This school seems to have an agenda that does not consider what is best for the children or the parents. Also, every year so many teachers leave and new, less experienced teachers take their place. This is affecting the academics and the safety of the children. We are not at all happy with this school at this point and could not recommend it.

Stratford seems to only be concerned about business. They only want money and don't seem to care about the kids. The elementary principal is horrible. The kids are afraid of her and she never smiles or greets the children. My child's class has had three teachers in one year and the school has not told us why the teachers keep quitting. This school is completely overrated and we are pulling our child out this year.

Teacher turn over rate at Washington park campus has been high in the past 2 years. The newly hired teachers don't get the Stratford training in time and the teaching instructions, disciplinary methods are very inconsistent between the classrooms. We are not sure if our children are getting quality education for the price we pay. Quality of teachers being hired is declining.

My son has been going to this school for the past 1 year and we have been very happy with his development. He has become more interested in music and art. His social awareness has greatly increased. We were very happy with the curriculum and the teachers. They tend to have lots of social events as well which involves parents. All in all they are taking care of his all round development.

I'm quite happy with the school. The quality of teachers is good and the curricullum is excellent. My daughter is learning a lot here. The school has a majority of indian and asian kids. It would be great to have students from other communities as well.

The school is very good. My son loves the school. They do have good extra curricular activities but I wish they would add games like soccer etc to Pre-K too. My son learnt to read pretty well and has interest in academics which says good things about the teachers

My son has been going to Stratford from last year and I am very pleased with the school. The teacheers are highly skilled and cater to the individual needs of the children. The principal is very pleasing and knows the children by their names. She is friendly and is always ready and willing to discuss any issues we have. Overall a great school.

My niece and nephew go to this school and I have visited many times. The focus on academic education is very high. Children are instructed in phonics and basic math in the prescool and pre-k classes. It has a great blend of teaching versus learning by play. I have attended many of their spring and winter recitals and the overall involvement of the teachers is very commendable. The focus on vocabulary and speech is also very high. There are many extra curricular activities available based for extra fees. Parent involvement is encouraged but not mandatory. Overall, a great school.

We have been very satisfied with the quality of Stratford's academic programs. Our child has learned a tremendous amount and seems to absorb the curriculum with interest and without getting bored or frustrated. Her interest in the subjects taught extends outside of the classroom and she is happily engaged with thinking and reading about what she has been taught. For working parents, it is convenient to have a number of quality extracurricular programs offered after school, as well as well-monitored time to complete homework. Parent involvement is relatively light, as the curriculum across classrooms is pretty standardized and quite traditional. Parents do have to keep on top of homework with the child at home though.
