Message from The Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We feel so privileged to welcome your child to the Stratford Program. As part of APS, our goal is to provide all our students a safe, supportive environment where they can learn and thrive. We are an inclusive community that empowers all students to foster their dreams, explore their possibilities, and create their futures. At our school, students are the center of everything we do. Our teachers and staff are passionate about their students and experienced in meeting each child’s individual needs. Unique among Arlington schools, our love for all children, having each student strive to his/her best everyday, and to be a part of Westover Village, while working together to reunite with HB Wood lawn at the Wilson site.

As an educator for more than 29 years, I understand how vital it is to focus on the social-emotional well-being of all students, in addition to academic excellence.  I am dedicated to ensuring your family feels at home at our school and am here to answer any questions you may have.We are so excited to start another great year and are here to answer any questions you have as we settle in for the 2018-19 school year.


Dr. Karen Gerry
