Arts at Stamford: Nurturing Creativity, Self-Expression and Confidence

As an IB World School, ensuring students receive a broad and balanced education is in our DNA. Nurturing creativity, self-expression, and confidence in the arts (visual, performing, and music) is a core element for all students at Stamford.

Stamford offers a broad, innovative, and balanced visual and performing arts program, which incorporates the framework and assessments of the Massachusetts Arts Curriculum. Students explore drama, music, and visual arts classes each week. The arts program allows students to explore a variety of genres, techniques, historical greats and develop their own original works.

For musically inclined students, private instrument lessons are available on campus by expert instructors. Our art programs foster creativity, self-expression, and confidence, enabling our students to succeed at Stamford and beyond graduation.
