Stratford High Class of '63

This website is for the class of 1963 that graduated from Stratford High School in Stratford, CT. We began our high school journey in split sessions as the only high school in Stratford. The town built a new high school on the north side of town, and we ended our high school time with only the kids from the south side of town. This website covers only the graduates from Stratford High School, and does not include the class from the other high school in town.

Purpose

The primary purpose of this website is to give all the class members of the 1963 graduating class of Stratford High School a place to let other members know what's up and find out what's up with our old friends. Announcements of class functions, such as, reunions will be made on this site by the organizers. All class members can register on this website, login to the website, and add photos, facts, and news about themselves. Let's try to keep this website active and current so that we can keep in touch with one another.
