Every student at Stamford American International School is treated as an unique individual and given the direction, counsel and support to discover her or his own potential for greatness.
Its curriculum supports a student-centred approach: Teaching for knowledge is paired with personal development. At the core of its academic programme is the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum built into the framework of the rigorous American Education Reaches Out (AERO) standard.
3 Fast Facts:
1. Individualised Education
Stamford American is the first and only school in Singapore to offer all three of the following curricula: Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) and Business and Technical Education Council (BTEC) Diploma. In fact, it is the only school in South-east Asia to offer the last option.
Adding the BTEC vocational courses in 2020 is a continuation of Stamford American’s objective to go beyond only academic learning. This programme is an extension of Stamford’s Independent Art Studies, which was in response to a growing need from its own 11th grade students and others in Singapore looking for real-life practical learning. This means students graduate with not just a Stamford High School Diploma, but with a concentrated skill, too.
2. A Global Community
With a student and staff population consisting of more than 75 and 30 nationalities, respectively, globalism lies at the very heart of the Stamford American ethos and core of daily school life.
3. Honing Well-Rounded Kids
At Stamford American, in addition to a focus on core subject areas, it prizes the performing and visual arts, design and physical education. The school also prioritises its community’s well-being by supporting students and families through individualised learning, an advisory programme and pastoral care across all divisions.

“The new superintendent has done a fantastic job of creating a culture of openness, honesty, inclusion, community and fun! Right away, you can see that the school ‘walks the talk’ and truly cares about student well-being. We’re happy to have found a home at Stamford American’s Early Learning Village (ELV) and encourage parents to speak with other parents to help them decide which school is right for them.”
– Megan Fitzgerald, parent of an Early Years pupil
