Stratford High School is located in center Stratford, behind the town hall and a Volkswagen dealership. It has two parking lots, one for students and one for teachers. Behind the school, there is a small field with a practice baseball field, a weight house, and a miscellaneous practice field. Due to the time period Stratford was designed, and the location of Stratford High School, the rest of the "campus" is down the street, nearby the Paradise Green neighborhood and next to Longbrook Park. Over there is Pender's Field, featuring the school's football field and baseball park. All of this is located about a mile away from the school.
