Reopening and Reuniting at Stratford in the Age of COVID-19

As California counties have begun to allow schools to reopen for in-person instruction, many of Stratford’s schools are in the process of welcoming K-8 students back to campus, with stringent health and safety protocols in place.  Prospective families are invited to schedule a tour and learn more.


While on tours, parents often ask what sets our elementary program apart from other schools.

At Stratford, we focus on our core principles and strive to provide the best learning environment that enables students to thrive in their nascent cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development.
