Stratford is as good as you wish it to be. They have some of the best technology I have seen in any schools, as each student has their own personal MacBook, and they are introducing new technology such as 3d laptops, and 3d printers. They have two separate classes for English Language Arts, Humanities, and three classes for Mathematics. At this school the inn class curriculum has always been slow for me, but as one of their top students it truly isn't the schools's fault. Even if the class curriculum has been slow, they provide enough resources that I may take my learning into my own hands and learn at my own, faster pace.
