  • Welcome to Stratford Hall

    Stratford Hall is a remarkable community of dedicated students, families, faculty and staff who come together everyday to share their talents, creativity, and experiences in the pursuit of learning and personal growth. Through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum, students develop the skills of deep inquiry, thematic connection and global perspective to prepare students for a changing and unpredictable world. 

    This exceptional program of academic, arts, athletics, clubs and student life engages students to achieve remarkable leaps in development through each stage of their education. Stratford Hall students learn to be thinkers, doers, leaders and lifelong learners. 

    Stratford Hall celebrates and values all members for who they are. Identity, culture and relationships are upheld as core constructs. We actively work upon our practice in diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) and observe indigenous understanding and reconciliation. These beliefs are evident in all parts of our institution, from the classroom to the boardroom. 

    Even though we teach a globally minded curriculum, our location is one of our greatest assets. When Stratford Hall opened its doors in East Vancouver in 2000, our Founders understood that students experience school within - not separately from - the surrounding neighbourhood. We are connected to an incredible diversity of people, cultures, activities and history.

    Stratford Hall is constantly developing and growing as an institution, through design thinking, professional development, curriculum revision, and campus development. We acknowledge our historical foundation while attending the changing world around us in order to provide the best possible educational environment for our students.

    We invite you to visit our campus and see these principles in action, whether you are a prospective student, family, employee, or neighbour.
