Stamford American International School (Stamford) was opened by Cognita in August 2009 and is founded on a mission of providing the best teaching and learning experiences for each individual. Stamford offers students from Nursery through High School a rigorous academic program featuring the IB Program enhanced by American academic standards.
Stamford is an authorized school for the IB Middle Years Program and the IB Primary Years Program and is a candidate school* for the IB Diploma Program. Technology is a priority and the 1 to 1 Elementary iPad Program (Kindergarten 2 to Grade 5) and Secondary School 1 to 1 MacBook Pro Program ensures that technology is fully integrated into classroom activities. Stamford also offers daily Mandarin and Spanish language instruction to broaden communication skills.
Centrally located at 279 Upper Serangoon Road (1 Woodleigh Lane), the brand new, purpose-built facility houses a Learning Resources and Media Center with global video-conferencing, an interactive Science Center, and top-of-the-line athletics facilities.
Cognita is committed to excellence in education. Cognita is one of the largest owners and operators of private independent schools globally with over 60 schools around the world. Headquartered in the UK with a Regional Asia Headquarters in Singapore, Cognita established itself in the UK as the leading provider of private education and has since expanded internationally. Cognita now has a family of outstanding schools around the world delivering the IB Diploma, Spanish, US, UK and Montessori curriculum. Cognita was formed with the vision of building a family of uniquely individual schools where teaching excellence would ensure that each school retain an outstanding local reputation. Cognita schools benefit from remaining largely autonomous but with access to the extensive experience and support of a broader entity.
