Stratford has been voted the best preschool, elementary, and middle school by readers of Bay Area Parent. Stratford School is WASC accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
Although Tuesday was a special reception for the Pleasanton community, classes at Stratford actually began Aug. 27.
The school's mission, Sherry Adams told the gathering, is to create a school community that inspires children to realize their full potential, while providing a safe and nurturing school environment.
"To support this mission, Stratford brings together principals, teachers and parents who are passionate about education," she said. "Together, we provide the best possible learning environment for our students."
The Pleasanton campus formerly was the home of Carden West School, once a national private elementary school that encountered financial difficulties, forcing it to close it local school.
The management team of Stratford School's Pleasanton campus includes Matt Wulfstat, president; Jessie Channey, preschool principal; Sanny Figueroa, elementary school principal; and the school's founder Sherry Adams.
