Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am honoured to be the principal of Stratford School, home of the Eagles and the Cogito Alternative Program. On behalf of all staff, I am pleased to welcome back all of our returning families, and extend a warm welcome to all who are new to Stratford this year. I look forward to getting to know our new families and working with all of our families over the coming year.

Respect. Responsibility. Results. At Stratford, these are the three Rs that guide our teaching and learning as we strive to realize the District's vision of transforming the learners of today into the leaders of tomorrow. Stratford is a school with an outstanding, well-deserved reputation for excellence in both academics and citizenship. Our strong professional staff offers high-quality learning opportunities for every student, within the context of the rigorous academic demands of the Cogito program. Cogito offers students learning possibilities that go beyond the Alberta Program of Studies, in a structured environment that fosters the growth of strong study habits and self-discipline.

A key component to the success of any educational program is committed parental support, and we highly value the strong partnership with parents we are privileged to enjoy at Stratford. Ongoing communication is the foundation of this partnership. I encourage all parents to be actively involved in regular communication with your children's teachers, and invite you also to share your questions, concerns and observations with me.

Best wishes for success as together we embark on a new learning adventure!
