Well the one reason school reviews are untrustable, is because all the kids are 5 star rating "best school ever" or "I love it!". Anyway here is the review: Well the teachers are really nice, and there's not a lot of homework. Actually that's bad, iv'e been in this school for three years and my mom thinks i'm lying that there's no homework. Homework raises your grade and is better practice. So the teachers should put more effort and print some homework, even if its 2 or 3 questions. -Joey Beck

My son currently goes to this school. Very disappointed. My son was an honor roll student 2 years in a row, his last year the school decided to change grading scales. The problem is that the new grading scales do not make sense and the teacher were using them but not understanding them too. They actually told my son that they did not know how they were grading and to contact the district. When I contacted both teachers and principal the teacher contacted me a week later and I am still waiting on the principal's call. I am assuming it wont happen.

Worst school by far teachers don't care about you most staff are horrible and rude to students. Most schools in the district (CCSD93) are the same way.

This school was by far the WORSEST school I went to. Let me get started.... Teachers didn't give care about the racial comments in class! The staff members in the office don't even listen to you! I went in the office and waited 20 minutes until they took me into their notice! Also some sport coaches don't even take time to look at ALL the players at tryouts! My brother got cut from basketball and the coach made stupid excuses and lies on why he cut him on the first day! Anybody who has seen him play knows he is not the type of player to get cut on the first day!!! He goes out and trys out next year(along with me) and the coach in 8th grade says he gots really good skill......THEN WHY THE HECK DID HE GET CUT ON THE FIRST DAY LAST YEAR!!!!!?????? Everything about this school just sucks. Im not putting out names but how about maybe take this into notice and start fixing their act! When I finished 8th grade, I made a lot of friends, but I also learned that America is not all the times the land of free and equality. Their is still some racism going around and the teachers are doing nothing to stop it! I am sickin tired of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would rate this school a negative 10

I went to this school a couple of years ago and had a horrible experience. I was physically bullied during class and the teacher didn't say anything about it. Kids were disrespectful towards the building and each other and none of the administrators gave a care. There were/still are fights all the time. Bullying still to this day isn't handled by any of the staff. My education was great, but I couldn't enjoy middle school because of how poorly everything was handled.

I am a sixth grader at Stratford. I was happy at first, but bullying to students is way out of control. I feel that the administrators don't care. But, Stratford is getting better. But there are still daily fights.

My time at the school was far below what was acceptable. The teachers hardly ever cared and fighting in the school was a norm. Apon ocassion you'd get the rare teacher who did teach you enough to get you above a C. Over all, the school was very bad, I would never recommed this school.

Stratford is the best school ever and the teachers are extremely motivated to help their students succeed. They also have STRIVE it's were the students can get help with homework after school.They have art as a related arts class Mrs. Horowitz it really talented. The Music teacher is good at helping you understand. Sports the 2006-2007 boys b-ball team did really well, and so did the boys volleyball team. All the coaches are really talented and dedicated and so are the players. Parent involvement is great there is the parent teacher conferences one in the fall (required) and one in the spring but you have to request it. You can go on the website and go to the online classrooms. Email the teachers. Progress reports are sent home every two weeks and require a signature along with the progress reports you get a Stratford Sentinel and a team newsletter. IluvSMS

Both of my children attended Stratford Middle School. The academic programs are outstanding and the staff shows a true concern for the students. The interaction between students and teachers was very high and both of my children enjoyed their middle school years. There are plenty of extracurricular activities along with intramural sports. The school supports the Character Counts! program and it shows in both the students and the staff. Stratford has a very involved PTA who is truly supportive of the school. Art is part of the curriculum, band is available along with choir. Each year the school puts on a musical for the community. Stratford is a great place!
