At Stamford American International School we believe the success of our program is based on teamwork, collaboration and the broad participation of our international community. All our students are unique individuals, with equal potential to make a positive contribution to the school and society. Our goal is to instill an enthusiasm for lifelong learning and a sense of global awareness in each student, along with the necessary skills to prepare them for the challenges and changes which lie ahead.
Stamford American is truly an international school, where our faculty and the wider school community proudly reflect the shared vision, commitment and energy to ensure the educational success of every student. With more than 65 nationalities represented on campus, each of us has an exceptional opportunity to develop an understanding of, and appreciation for, the philosophies of people from many different cultures.
While we have established high standards for academic achievement and performance, our educational program has been created with an emphasis on the development of the whole person. We aim to provide the direction, counsel and support that each student needs to reach their full potential.
Our school environment provides daily opportunities for students to increase their knowledge and skill base in order to acquire the attributes necessary for meaningful lives. Many of these attributes are identified in the International Baccalaureate learner profile, which is the core of our curriculum model featuring rigorous American standards enhanced by the International Baccalaureate program. The curriculum at Stamford American is designed to support a developmental, student-centered approach where teaching for understanding is coupled with a stimulating and varied curriculum.
Websites are useful but are rarely able to capture the true magic of a vibrant school. I hope that you will take the opportunity to contact us to gain a deeper understanding of our program. And, of course, we hope that you can visit us to learn first hand what sets us apart in the world of international education.
