Jason McBride, Head of School
As Stratford Hall enters its 16th year, it is my honour and privilege to tell you little more about our school community. Having just joined Stratford Hall as the new Head of School in 2015 myself following a 15-year career overseas, I can sympathize with the decision ahead of your family. There is often a combination of excitement and anxiety that the process of choosing a school may entail, one I am personally familiar with as my eldest daughter also joined the school this year. Ethically and professionally as educators, we endeavor to do the best for, and with, your child; as a father of one of those students, you have my absolute word that we will uphold that promise!
As a potential new family, I look forward to welcoming you to one of our monthly admissions information sessions to meet some of our wonderful staff as well as to tour the school. We recognize that there are many options for education in Vancouver and we are both proud and grateful that you are considering us as the next step in your child’s education. Stratford Hall has a proud history and a wonderful feel to its culture and climate because of the wonderful students, families, faculty and staff that are here. Our aim is to continue to strengthen the areas in which the school excels, while addressing areas that could be further developed for the benefit of students. Our mission and vision will continue to drive who were are and who we aim to become as we educate students to the highest global standards through the rigour of the IB programs, all while helping them to reach for their own chosen goals. We welcome you to work towards that goal with us in the years ahead.
We hope you will consider joining the Stratford Hall community in that journey!
