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 years old. As a member 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.

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. We are proud of having 90% of our graduates from our Singapore campus being accepted to their 1st choice university or college. 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 combined with regular externally moderated assessments through Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) testing. Following our huge success at our fully IB-accredited Stamford campus in Singapore, we are committed to preparing our students for future success in any part of the world to continue to live, learn, and work. That is why Stamford seeks to offer students a choice of graduating with either the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program† or American High School Diploma, or both. 

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 specialized 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 68 schools worldwide. Providing excellent teaching and supporting every child to achieve their potential are the cornerstones of a Cognita education.

Websites are useful but are rarely able to capture the true magic of a vibrant school. We hope that you will take the opportunity to contact us to gain a deeper understanding of our programs. And, of course, we hope that you can visit us to learn first hand what sets us apart in the world of international education.
