Stamford American International School ("SAIS") 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 85 Cognita schools in Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Asia, we employ 10,000 teaching and support staff in the care and education of more than 58,000 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 three Cognita-operated schools in Singapore, alongside Australian International School (AIS)and Brighton College (Singapore), in partnership with Brighton College (International). 

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 regularly to Cognita Asia CEO Eric van den Berg and the Cognita Asia Executive Team to update progress on goals and initiatives. 

At the school level, the superintendent works with a deputy superintendent, managing director (operations), and academic and operational leadership teams to develop, implement and evaluate plans for continuous 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.
