What the school says

“Stamford American International School was opened by Cognita in August 2009 and is a world-class school for children of two years of age and older. Stamford employs a holistic approach to educating children through a combination of American and International curricula. Stamford aims to not only develop students intellectually but also to cultivate the social, emotional, and physical components of every student. Stamford's students acquire the academic skills necessary to flourish in school and at the same time, advance a deep, personal appreciation of other cultures, emphasized by daily Mandarin and Spanish classes. Our school’s Foundation Campus is centrally located on Lorong Chuan and features purpose-built facilities including spacious classrooms, an American football field, soccer field, basketball court and a swimming pool.”


Stamford is accredited by American educational bodies and offers the American High School Diploma. It also offers International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (DP), and integrates these programmes with American standards.
