With an etho for educating children to achieve more than they believe they can, Stamford American International School has quickly established itself as the first and only school in Singapore to offer both International Baccalaureate (IB) and American curriculums for children aged 18 months to 18 years.
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 learning of young children.
Two graduating paths
Offering flexibility and unparalleled choice, students can choose to graduate with either the IB Diploma or American High School Diploma with Advanced Placement (AP) credits, or both. With over 40 IB courses and 20 AP courses to select from, students are set up for university placement and global ambitions. Stamford American recognizes the need to support students’ choices beyond school and hence, carry out pre-university testing from Grade 8 (age 14 yrs) onwards.
International mindedness through culture and Language
Globalism lies at the very heart of the school which defines ‘what it is to be a Stamford Lion’…global citizens representing 65+ nations sharing world class facilities and unparalleled opportunities beyond the classroom. Being multilingual is a key element of global citizenship. This stands behind the development of Stamford American’s World Language Program which offers three of the world’s most spoken languages – English, Mandarin and Spanish. There are daily and bilingual options in Mandarin or Spanish, as well as a dedicated Accelerated English program, taught by native speaking specialists.
Two stunning campuses, centrally located

Combined, they offer 4 swimming pools, 3 sports arenas, 500-seat professional theater, tennis courts, rock climbing walls, Golf Academy, cutting edge technology and plenty of outdoors space.
