Teachers and administrators are very involved with the children on a daily basis. It is easy to speak with and work with the teachers and administrators. I have lived in Stratford all of my life and I attended the Stratford schools.

My daughter attends 1st grade in Parkview currently, after she transfered in the school. I believe the school is teaching at the right levels, but needs to recognize the kids who need to be challenged. I believe a great deal of things at the school are done because of the parent involvement, that is way to extreme. I would say overalll, we are happpy with the school for our children

Two of my school aged children attended k and 1st grade. The Pros: Both teachers were great! Mrs. Moyer and Mrs. Reuter. Appropriate encouragement, supportive, creative and loving. May i add expierienced too! I feel my children were lucky to get these specific teachers. (not all were as enthusiastic as these blessings) Cons: My child's saftey was seriously overlooked during class (yr. K, different teacher) repeatedly. Sum: Overall greatful, but glad to be in a new school and district.

The school has a lot of extra curricular activities but the education is very slow. My child was doing more in Pre-K than Kindergarten and first grade. Nice teachers but falls behind in educating bright kids or those kids that need to be challenged. In fact, I'm finding that my child is beginning to regress due to not being stimulated. I am considering re-locating or private school next season.

We moved to Stratford because we heard & read that they had a great school system & we were looking for a better education & environment for our children only to be very disappointed. The education level here is lower than where we came from & that school failed the state standardized test ever year. If your child is smart & gifted and likes to be challenged, you may want to think about another school.

My son attended PreK with Mrs. Sweeney. He gained a lot of confidence over the year and we were really happy with his progress. We were also happy that they don't shove learning down his throat because this is his time to have fun and get to know school. I am a realistic parent, I do not expect a genius at 5 nor do I want one. I want a normal, adjusted child who enjoys school like I did.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
