Welcome to Stratford Elementary School
Stratford School’s mission is to provide a positive school environment for the benefit of all students and to ensure that each student feels personally connected to the school, attains high levels of academic achievement, and develops high standards of personal behavior, based upon the six pillars of character (i.e., caring, trustworthiness, citizenship, fairness, respect, and responsibility) that are part of the District’s character education program.

Established in 1921, Stratford School has twice been recognized as a California State Distinguished School. As one of four elementary schools in the Central Union School District, Stratford School is located in the town of Stratford, six miles south of Lemoore. Many of Stratford’s students’ parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents attended Stratford before them.

If the concept that “child by child we build a nation” is, indeed, a truism, then it follows that educated child by educated child we build a nation strong in responsible citizens of good character who set goals and achieve objectives to their personal benefit as well as the community’s.

Stratford School’s goal is to prepare all students to function as informed, productive citizens; to achieve success in the work environment and to realize personal fulfillment. In order for Stratford to fulfill this goal, students must attain high levels of academic achievement. For students to attain high levels of achievement, Stratford School, its students, their parents, and the community each have responsibilities which must be fulfilled.

By working together, we can ensure that students maximize and enjoy the learning opportunities at Stratford and develop the skills necessary to make them successful learners. As always, the Stratford staff appreciates your support. Should parents need to contact Stratford’s personnel, they may telephone the school office at (559) 925-2605.
