Stratford Middle Years School Mission

Our mission is to create a program that engages every single student. We strive to help students accomplish challenges and exceed their goals in a caring and supportive environment. One of the most important ways that we enrich our educational experience is by cultivating an understanding of ones self and of others, which helps to foster the importance of social-emotional wellbeing and empathy. 


Stratford Middle Years School Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple - to embrace and provide for all types of learning. We respect the individual needs of all our students and believe that with the right guidance and direction, everyone can succeed. Our educational approach empowers students to question conventional thinking and to pursue their academic understanding with dedication and originality.

Small Class Sizes

Stratford Middle Years follows a cross-curricular approach using a small class format with an exceptional student-to-teacher ratio of 8 to 1. The individual attention that each student receives makes a huge difference in allowing our students to reach their full potential. By keeping our class sizes small and having the freedom to focus on each student's abilities, we are able to nurture and coach personalized learning strategies, and do so in a supportive engaging atmosphere with a unique community spirit.



At SMYS, parents, staff, students and alumni form a close-knit community through events, traditions and our common mission. Among the most important lessons students learn at SMYS is what it means to be part of a community.  Our students grow to be individuals who are deeply engaged in their communities and contribute positively to society.


Music and Performing Arts 

We believe in offering our students holistic education that not only includes academic excellence but also focuses on character building, leadership development, and creative expression. Our performing arts program enables students to discover their innate talents, showcase their skills and develop a deep appreciation and understanding of the creative arts. We provide ample opportunity for our students to explore music and theater, while building their confidence and self-esteem in a supportive and inclusive atmosphere.

Our Environment 

At Stratford Middle Years School, we are committed to providing a nurturing environment where students can thrive and grow. Our daily interaction between different age groups and collaboration is what sets us apart from other schools. We firmly believe that relationships between students and faculty members are key to a successful educational experience. Our school is a safe and welcoming place where students feel comfortable exploring new ideas, stepping outside of their comfort zones and challenging themselves.
