This provides essential developmentally appropriate standards for guiding learning of young children.
Two graduating paths
At Stamford American, students enjoy the flexibility and unparalleled choice allowing them to choose to graduate with either the IB Diploma or American High School Diploma with Advanced Placement (AP) credits, or both. With over 40 IB courses and 20 AP courses to select from, students are set up for university placement and global ambitions. Stamford American recognizes the need to support students’ choices beyond school and hence, carry out pre-university testing from Grade 10 (age 16) onwards. This early introduction allows our academic teams to provide Stamford students with ample tailored support, ensuring a smooth transition to the tertiary institution of their choice.

International mindedness through culture and Language
Stamford American enjoys a truly multi-cultural community with over 70 nationalities. We believe that being multilingual is a key element of global citizenship which fosters true cultural appreciation and enhances communication skills. This stands behind the development of our World Language Program which provides 3 of the world’s most spoken languages – Mandarin, Spanish and English, taught by native speaking specialists. Our language approach aims to develop students as bi-lingual, bi-literate, and bi-cultural through either daily curriculum language instruction from 18 months, the well-established bilingual program from aged 3, or accelerated English learning from aged 5.
