Opening in Sept 2017, Stamford American International School is one of almost 70 schools owned by Cognita, a world leading international schools group.

Stamford American School in Hong Kong will offer a standards-based American curriculum combined with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program for children aged 5 to 18 years (IB candidate school).

With a conservative core and a progressive approach, Stamford appears to believe in a bit more standard testing than most IB school and uses the data to measure growth – in academics as well as social, physical, emotional and cultural aspects. Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) assessments are administered twice a year in Mathematics, Reading and Science. For the second language, students are assessed in Chinese and Spanish using STAMP (Standards-Based Measurement of Proficiency).

Adopting the STEMinn program – problem-based Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Innovation – (5 lessons a week), all teaching and learning is underpinned with a conservative base.

All students may choose to take either Chinese or Spanish as a second language and take a lesson daily. Additionally, one bilingual class will be offered for the K class. In this class, both teachers teach both English and Putonghua. Writing is in simplified characters. At G3, it’s expected some students will transition to the mainstream English program.

Admissions are non-selective. Students will be evaluated as to their potential to thrive under the vision of ‘achieving more than you believe you can.’ Some EAL and support for SEN students with mild needs will be provided.
