Stratford School - Almaden

Stratford School was founded in 1999 by Sherry Adams and Joe Wagner when it opened its first campus in Danville, CA, with only four classrooms and a small, dedicated team of educators. Word spread quickly, and the school was soon full. The following year, Stratford added a second campus in Sunnyvale, CA, which also filled quickly. With ongoing requests from parents, Stratford has continued to open new campuses throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and in Southern California. In 2022, Stratford Preparatory High School opened its doors, and Stratford's premier academics are now available for students in Preschool through Grade 12.
