Stamford American International School Curriculum
At Stamford American International School we offer a challenging American Curriculum that follows the American Education Reaches Out (AERO), Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) combined with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme from 18 months to 18 years old. Graduating with a High School Diploma and either the IB Diploma, Advanced Placement (AP) credits, BTEC Diploma or a combination, gives our students an unparalleled choice and competitive advantage.
What is International Baccalaureate?
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a two-year educational programme for 16- to 19-year-old students. IB programme graduates receive an internationally accepted diploma, qualifying them for higher education institutions worldwide.
The two-year course develops the student’s intellectual, emotional, personal and social skills, preparing them for college in more ways than one. The goal of the IB programme is to open as many opportunities as possible for the students and equipping them with the skills that would help them take advantage of their full potential.
American Education Reaches Out (AERO) Standards
The AERO project is supported by the U.S. State Department’s Office of Overseas Schools and the Overseas Schools Advisory Council to assist schools overseas in developing and implementing American standards-based school curricula. AERO provides a framework for curriculum consistency from Kindergarten to Grade 12.
International Baccalaureate (IB) Programs
Stamford American offers the IB Primary Years Program (PYP), the IB Middle Years Program (MYP) and the IB Diploma Program (DP). IB World Schools share a common philosophy— a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Stamford American believes is important for our students.
IB Primary Years Program (PYP): Early Years & Elementary School
The IB PYP is a course of study designed to meet the educational requirements of students between the ages of 3 and 12 years.
The PYP focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. The PYP:
- Encourages international-mindedness.
- Encourages a positive attitude to learning by engaging students in inquiries and developing their awareness of the process of learning so that they become lifelong learners.
- Reflects real life by encouraging learning beyond traditional subjects with meaningful, in-depth inquiries into real issues.
- Emphasizes, through the learner profile, the development of the whole student physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
IB Middle Years Program (MYP): Middle School
The IB MYP is a course of study designed to meet the educational requirements of students between the ages of 11 and 16 years. The MYP provides a philosophical framework with a holistic approach to education and a rigorous framework for assessment. The MYP aims to educate the whole person and to show the impact of each individual on the world around them. The MYP fosters intercultural awareness and the importance of communication. Its goal is to constantly place learning within a context, and to make explicit the relationship between various disciplines.
IB Diploma Program (DP): Secondary School
The IB Diploma Program is recognized by universities in 124 countries and is designed to be taken over two years (age 16-19). The DP includes six academic subjects and the central core which consists of the extended essay, theory of knowledge and CAS (creativity, action and service).
