Stratford Public Schools Mission Statement

The mission of Stratford Public Schools is to develop a community of learners in which all students acquire the knowledge, skills, and confidence to meet the challenges of a changing and increasingly diverse 21st century community.

Core Values

Students will acquire content knowledge, strengthen higher-order thinking, and develop character in order to address 21st century challenges.

Core Beliefs for Learning

We believe that:

  • a safe, positive school climate that embraces diversity is essential to ensure respect and opportunity for each individual
  • students should understand the world beyond their community in order to contribute to a global society
  • parents and students must share responsibility and work in partnership with the school in order to improve academic performance and to develop lifelong learners
  • students should use technology effectively to acquire, process, and deliver information
