Specialist Teachers

Part of our commitment to personalized learning as well as providing a broad and balanced curriculum is to ensure that we have high caliber specialists to deliver our curriculum. When hiring faculty for specialist programs we ensure that every teacher is an expert in their area of instruction. Our faculty have an average of 9 years of teaching experience in their area expertise so our students are learning from the best whether it be PE, the arts, languages or technology. To support our students physical and emotional wellness we have full time counselors and nurses to help ensure our students have a healthy and happy day at Stamford.
