Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2015
Silicon Valley based educational leader, Stratford School, announces its plan to open new schools in Southern California in 2016. Receiving accolades from parents across its 18 campuses, Stratford School is uniquely positioned to offer an exceptional academic experience to preschool, elementary, and middle school students in Southern California.
Upgrades at their first campus in Los Angeles are set to begin in late September. Stratford School will start accepting applications immediately for the 2016 - 2017 academic year for grades preschool through 5. Enrollment is limited and expected to fill quickly, with Stratford entering the SoCal market as a recognized top-tier private school whose students historically matriculate to high-ranked, first choice high schools. Stratford also will immediately begin recruiting for leadership and teaching positions.
Stratford has expanded its educational program to meet the growing demands of parents seeking an academically advanced, socially enriched, dynamic education. “Our vision is to inspire and nurture the hearts and minds of our students--one child, one teacher, one family at a time. All campuses maintain a school community that inspires children to realize their full and unique potential,” says Stratford founder, Sherry Adams, who established the school in 1999.
Recently awarded 2015 School of the Year at the Synopsys Science and Technology Championship and Voted Best of the Bay 2015, by readers of Bay Area Parent, Stratford School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, (WASC). WASC commended Stratford for providing “…a rich, well-rounded, challenging, and sequential curriculum that is constantly enhanced.”
Stratford School’s formula for success lies within its unique combination of high academic standards, culture of caring, and passionate faculty that foster curiosity and achievement in each student. Stratford School provides an unparalleled education, where children are inspired to be creative problem-solvers, innovators, and leaders.
It takes a lot to stand out in Silicon Valley, widely regarded as the hub of innovation and development. “There aren’t many schools doing what we do, the way we do it,” says Shawn Weidmann, Stratford’s CEO. “We provide a high quality education rooted in the foundation of a core academic curriculum, with special emphasis in music, arts, science, technology, engineering, and foreign language.” He adds, “We look forward to continued growth and success in Southern California.”
