Stratford STEM Magnet High School (formerly Stratford Comprehensive High School) is a magnet school in Nashville, Tennessee, operated by Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. It serves approximately 800 students. In March 2012, the Metro Board of Education dropped the "Comprehensive" title from all its zoned schools to reflect the district's new emphases on smaller learning communities and thematic career academies.[1] The school is noteworthy as MNPS's only STEM high school.
