An excellent school with an incredible art, music, math, and reading focus. Also the home of the incredible Advanced Learning Program that is above and beyond. Only other program in the state like it is in Greenwich.
We have had three children attend Stratford Academy since 2004 and we have always been happy with this school. There have been some changes in the leadership positions at both Honeyspot House and Johnson House over the years, but the stability and quality of teachers/staff have been solid and they are fantastic. From kindergarten to Advanced Learning Program teachers, not only are they great with the children but they encourage open and honest relationships with parents to make sure that the kids are getting the attention and care that they need and deserve. PTSA is also highly committed and great to be a part of. And what an amazing Arts and Music program they have. Top notch teachers and you should check out their annual musical program. You'd be amazed that these are elementary age kids performing!!!
I absolutely love this school. The teachers are very much involve and so are the parents. They have so many activities to choose from, a great music program and theater. My children have been getting excellent education here.
The teachers and vice principal at the Academy seem to be very caring. Being the only magnet school in the town, Academy also host the town's "Gift and Talented" program for advanced learners from 4th grade. The curriculum offered on the advanced program ALP seem to be designed to challenge the advanced students right from elementary school. In addition, the schools specialized Art and Music program seem to be well thought off. I am still getting to know more about the school and will come back to the forum to update.
Stratford Academy is a school community of involved parents & faculty that treats each student as individuals cheering on successes & encourages academic growth. The school facilitates learners at all levels & provides amazing support & resources to parents.
