Stamford American School Hong Kong is a private school that offers a world-class international education with a rigorous standards-based curriculum for children aged 5 to 18. As an accredited school of the Council of International Schools (CIS), 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.

At Stamford American School Hong Kong, your child will be welcomed into a school community that will foster their self-belief and empower them to succeed.

Our curriculum combines the rigorous American Education Reaches Out (AERO) and Common Core Plus frameworks with an inquiry-based approach to learning to ensure that your child will be engaged in their studies and challenged to reach their potential. Graduates will receive an American High School Diploma and the option of the complete International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) or IBDP courses, opening the door to top universities worldwide.

While we have established high academic achievement and performance standards, our educational programs emphasize developing the whole child. 

Our innovative approach to nurturing the whole child includes an award-winning STEMinn program (science, technology, engineering, math, and innovation), which focuses on developing 21st-century skills to challenge your child through projects that encourage innovation and creativity. Your child will have access to the latest technology and experienced experts who will drive them to think beyond the ordinary.

Our broad and balanced curriculum will allow your child to participate in high-quality specialist programs for athletics, arts, and modern daily language (Mandarin or Spanish) taught by subject specialists qualified in their field. In Elementary, your child would also have the opportunity to further develop their appreciation of language and culture in the Bilingual classroom option (Mandarin/English). After school, students explore their passions with a choice of over 50 Co-Curricular Activities.

As part of the Cognita family of over 85 schools worldwide connected with a common purpose to create an inspiring world of education, we work collaboratively with schools worldwide, sharing insights and best practices to build self-belief and an international perspective in our students. Your family will have the added benefit of admissions priority and assistance to transfer to Cognita schools in the UK, Asia, and the Americas.
