More than just a construction project.
The Stratford High School project goes beyond the physical alterations and additions to the current building. It's about building a space where students prepare for life in the 21st Century and where the community can come together.
Flexible Learning Environment
Classrooms for the 21st Century
Lectures, Group Projects, Individual Learning. The 21st century classroom needs to handle all of these situations with fluidity and ease. The new classrooms at Stratford High School will be larger than the current building, and furniture will accommodate multiple classroom layouts.
Career & Technical Education
Continuing SHS's commitment to the Trades
The new Stratford High School will continue the popular programs for career and technical education, including: Human Development, Culinary Arts, and Health and Medical Careers. The school's automotive and wood shops will also be retooled to include current technology.
Providing a Safe Space
Meeting and Exceeding the State's Standards
The new Stratford High School will meet and exceed the recommendations of the CT School Safety Infrastructure Council produced in their Report.
Gymnasium & Theater
Creating a new Athletic and Community Space
Once completed, Stratford High School will have a completely renovated gymnasium, with accommodations for 20% more spectators. A new auditorium capable of large productions will be part of the later phases of the project.
