A dual curriculum which combines both the International Baccalaureate (IB) with Advanced Placement (AP) credits, to equip students with the tools to choose their learning pathway, to accomplish their global university ambitions.

This is considered the best of both worlds as a robust education pathway for children age 18 months to 18 years.
Providing leading education at Stamford American, our aim is for your child to achieve more than they believe they can, and there’s no better way to accomplish this than to offer students unparalleled choice, academic rigour, and opportunities beyond the classroom.
