My granddaughter has attended this school for three years. Each teacher was very good and attentive to each student's needs. Everyone there works very hard to give the children a good experience. My granddaughter loves it!

My family loves Stratton Elementary! My daughter has attended since 2nd grade, and is currently in 4th. She's had amazing teachers every year. I really feel like they are all very special teachers who are able to recognize the diversity of their students, and make each one feel special and inspired. The pricipal, Mr. Perkins, is an absolute sweetheart, and he takes the time to know and talk to each child in the hall. The staff is very professional, and the school always looks nice and clean. I will be sad when my daughter moves up to Madison Middle next year, but then my son will be starting Kindergarten at Stratton; so we will still get to visit this great school for another 5 years!!
