Stratford STEM High School is a crucial piece of the Middle Tennessee STEM Hub, which is a program that seeks to foster education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Metro Nashville Public Schools is the only district in Tennessee that offers a K–12 STEM continuum in STEM education. This continuum includes programs at Hattie Cotton STEM Magnet Elementary, Bailey STEM Magnet Middle, Isaac Litton Middle, and Stratford STEM Magnet High. These schools in MNPS are working as part of the larger Middle Tennessee STEM hub to create real-world learning opportunities through strategic partnerships with private companies, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and institutions of higher education.
