Open Quote In the Fall of 2010, the Stratton Elementary school was awarded a National Blue Ribbon by the US Dept. of Education. No other school in Arlington has achieved this level of recognition. It is a fabulous school that cares deeply for it's children and strives to give a top - notch eduation. Close Quote

Open Quote Stratton School is a place that people tell you doesn't exist -- strong academics, top-notch staff, a guiding principal who leads with the kids in mind and at the same time talks to the parents like the grown-ups they are, a supportive and active parent community, and happy kids. Short on technology and pizzazz, but long on meaningful experiences and engaged children. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
