Rich diversity, caring instructors, passionate coaches, and they still turn out top notch students.

I think for the chorus trip, you should do some funds that can help the student pay for the trip. Fundraisers don't help because not all families want to by from them.

As a former student of Stratford High School, having graduated in 1995, I was and continue to be disgusted by the lack of encouragement from the staff (both teachers and guidance counselors). Given my poor history of grades because of emotional distress brought on by the many racial conflicts that occurred regularly in the school, I was told by my guidance counselor to 'not even bother trying to get into college.' If anyone wishes to dispute this, feel free to contact me at atibor@hotmail.com Regards, Amy C. Tibor Former Stratford High School Student P.s. I STILL cannot fathom how I survived only two years there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
