Stratford School Hosts Commissioning Event for New Altadena Allen Campus

Stratford School, a Silicon Valley based, award-winning independent private school, recently recognized as a leader in Early Childhood STEM education by the White House, recently announced the opening of their new preschool through sixth grade Altadena Allen campus.

On Wednesday, June 8, at 10:00 a.m., Stratford will hold a commissioning ceremony to officially mark and celebrate the commencement of renovations at the new Altadena Allen campus. Local dignitaries, school officials, honored guests, founding families and their children, will be invited to place a hand on a tile creating a commemorative piece that symbolizes the little and big imprints of all in attendance, to be displayed when the campus opens in August.

Led by Judy Burbank, head of school, the first matriculating classes will consist of students in preschool through second grade.

Stratford provides an exceptional STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) education, where children are inspired to be creative problem-solvers, innovators, and leaders.

Immediately following the reception, Stratford School will host an open house until 3:00 p.m.

A second open house will be held on Saturday, June 11, at 10:00 a.m.

Parents and children are invited to visit the campus and discover why Stratford is recognized as a top-tier private school by Bay Area parents. Guests are welcome to meet and query Stratford’s leadership team, teachers, and staff, explore the curriculum, and see sample classroom environments including an interactive STEAM area.

The Altadena Allen Campus is located at 2046 Allen Ave.

Registration for the open house events can be made at
