ABOUT STAMFORD AMERICAN SCHOOL - HONG KONG
Stamford American School – Hong Kong is a world-class international school launching September 2017, offering a rigorous standards-based education for children aged 5 to 18 years old. Our goal is to instill an enthusiasm for lifelong learning and a sense of global awareness in every student, along with the necessary skills to prepare them for the challenges and changes which lie ahead after they graduate from our school.
We are proud to establish Stamford American School – Hong Kong following the huge success at our sister campus, Stamford American International School in Singapore, which today has a vibrant community of over 3,000 students from 70 countries. As with our Singapore campus, our school in Hong Kong aims for your child to achieve more than they believe they can.
We offer an interdisciplinary curriculum based on the American Education Reaches Out (AERO) and Common Core Plus frameworks. These rigorous programs, combined with continual externally moderated assessments through Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) testing, prepares our students for success in their university studies. A choice to graduate with either the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program† or American High School Diploma, or both, means our graduates are ready to venture to any part of the world to continue to live, learn, and work. We are proud of having 90% of our graduates from our Singapore being accepted to their 1st choice university or college.
While we have established high standards for academic achievement and performance, our educational program has been created with an emphasis on the development of the whole child. We are proud to offer specialist programs across all subjects, including a problem-based Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Innovation (STEMinn) Program, a differentiated Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Reading Program, structured Physical Education based on the Society of Health and Physical Educators standards, and a challenging Visual and Performing Arts Program based on the Massachusetts Arts Curriculum.
Stamford American School – Hong Kong is part of Cognita, a global leader in independent education with over 65 schools worldwide. Providing excellent teaching and supporting every child to achieve their potential are the cornerstones of a Cognita education.
