Middle School

Our Middle School program prepares students for high school and beyond

At the Middle School level, we accelerate our STEAM program with advanced instruction and project-based learning. Technology is integrated throughout our robust curriculum to further develop critical thinking and a deeper understanding of STEAM.

Throughout the Middle School experience, our teachers build strong relationships with students that last beyond their time at Stratford. This unique approach empowers students to be self-reliant and to take responsibility for their own learning.

Stratford’s Middle School program includes robust science and mathematics, along with an emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving. 

Middle School students delve deeply into complex problems, and work together to develop solutions. They learn to ask questions, and to always look for more information to inform their decisions and answers.

Stratford’s intentional approach to educating the whole child results in young adults who are gifted communicators, skilled and generous collaborators, and creative problem solvers.

Stratford Middle School students graduate prepared to excel at outstanding high schools and beyond.

6th Grade

Sixth grade students focus on a rigorous, core curriculum of math, literature, and language arts. They work collaboratively with their peers and further develop important life skills, such as creativity, collaboration and communication. Teachers provide a safe, nurturing learning environment where students are celebrated for their successes and encouraged to try again when they make mistakes.
Students also enjoy after-school clubs and competitive sports, where time with friends offers opportunities to take on leadership roles.

7th Grade
7th Grade

Stratford students “find their feet” in seventh grade. For the first time, they are able to choose specialty classes, including speech and debate, fine and performing arts, or Spanish. As they discover their individual interests and passions, students understand what they enjoy most about school, and begin thinking about what they will pursue in high school, college, and as a career.
Students use 21st century skills, such as communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking, in every class.
