Stamford American is the only international school in Singapore to offer a curriculum which combines American standards with the International Baccalaureate (IB), and the College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
This is considered the best of both worlds as an education pathway for children 18 months to 18 years.
Providing leading education at Stamford American, our aim is for your child to achieve more than they believe they can, and there’s no better way to accomplish this than to offer your child unparalleled choice, academic rigour, and opportunities beyond the classroom to sensitively challenge them outside of their comfort zone.
You want your child to be equipped with the tools they need to choose their learning pathway after school, and excel in their selected career after that. And so do we.
As one of the leading US-centric schools, Stamford American integrates the rigorous American Education Reaches Out (AERO) standards with the IB Programme, and Advanced Placement (AP) credits. From 18 months, Stamford students begin their learning journey through the use of Teaching Strategies Gold Tracking which is aligned to the USA Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework. This provides essential developmentally appropriate standards for guiding the learning of young children.
At Stamford American, Students can enjoy the flexibility of obtaining Advanced Placement credits from Grade 10 (age 15), which provides them with the option to graduate in Grade 12 with the High School Preparatory Diploma with 3 different pathways – the full IB Diploma, or AP International Diploma or a blended program, putting students on the right path, to prepare them for life beyond School and leading universities worldwide.
