"We exist to inspire every learner every day."

We imagine Stratham Memorial School as a school where:

  • Every student is immersed in relevant, engaging, and meaningful learning experiences.

  • Every administrator, teacher, and staff member works interdependently and positively in a collaborative community to promote student growth.

  • Every child and adult is empowered and enjoys his or her work.
