Ability Grouping

Students are grouped by levels in English, mathematics, social studies and science courses as follows:

  • Advanced Placement: Indicates that the subject may prepare students for CEEB Advanced Placement examination and credit.
  • Honors: Indicates exceptional ability. Students are selected on basis of ability and previous achievement. Subjects emphasize research, independent projects and in-depth study.
  • College Prep: Prepares students for subsequent courses and college and career opportunities.
  • Grade Point Average and Class Rank
    Stratford High school uses a quality Point Ratio to weigh student grades. This allows the class rank to be reflective of course difficulty as well as student grades. The Grade Point Average (GPA) listed on the student transcript is based on a non-weighted scale of 4.3 to zero. Valedictorian and salutatorian status is determined by seven semesters of accumulated grades.
