Stamford American International School is proud to be part of the global Cognita family of schools. Cognita is an extraordinary group of diverse yet connected schools joining forces in an inspiring world of education with one common purpose: building self-belief and empowering individuals to succeed.

With some 70 Cognita schools in Europe, Latin America and Asia, we employ 5,000 teaching and support staff in the care and education of more than 35,000 students. Together, our schools ensure that each student receives a rounded Cognita Education:

  • We deliver academic excellence
  • We develop character
  • We nurture a global perspective

Stamford American International School is one of two Cognita schools in Singapore, alongside Australian International School (AIS). 

Stamford's Superintendent, Dr. Mark Wenzel, is charged with developing a strategic plan aligned with Cognita's over-arching goals of academic excellence, character development and global mindedness. Dr. Wenzel reports monthly to Cognita Asia CEO Michael Drake and the Cognita Asia leadership team to update progress on goals and initiatives. 

At the school level, the superintendent works with a deputy superintendent, managing director, and academic and operational leadership teams to develop, implement and evaluate plans for improvement. The superintendent supervises all principals, who in turn, work closely with teachers and instructional leaders to develop goals aligned to the strategic plan. 

Feedback from students, parents and staff is collected and evaluated regularly to address immediate needs and assess progress over time.
