Stamford American School Hong Kong

American Curriculum and Inquiry-Based Learning

Stamford fosters student growth with an American standards-based curriculum based on the rigorous and proven American Education Reaches Out (AERO) and Common Core Plus standards that develop a strong foundation in the core subjects such as language, art, math, humanities, and science. The international curriculum uses an inquiry-based approach across themes to nurture every child through a personalized instruction to foster curiosity and independent thinking. Our programs culminate with three diploma options, including the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP).

Elementary Curriculum

The elementary years at Stamford (Pre-primary to Grade 5) build a strong foundation of skills and academics through the IB Learner Profile and American standards-based curriculum. Building positive attitudes toward learning from a young age prepares our students to navigate the future challenges of middle school and high school.

The Middle School program (Grades 6-8) builds upon the solid academic and learning skills foundation developed in elementary school. Students are stretched with enhanced rigor and dedicated specialists courses to prepare them for the choices and challenges of High School.
