Why do parent choose Stamford?

What makes Stamford special is the care, knowledge and professionalism of the staff and faculty.

Grade 2 Parent

I feel that Stamford has been an excellent experience for Chloe so far. She benefits from small classes with a good amount of teacher-to-student attention. Given the challenging circumstances of the pandemic and online learning, I feel that the school has done a superb job pivoting to online learning so quickly and in such an organized and intelligent manner. They had also prepared the kids so well for it, so while online learning isn’t ideal, I think Chloe is still learning a lot and can interact with her friends at school in the best way possible given the circumstances.

My child joined G1 this year and has been having an amazing time. She made tremendous improvement in most areas, particularly her attitude towards learning, where credits goes to the Stamdford team and her homeroom teacher!

An independent parent survey by Learning Curve concluded that the top 2 reasons parents re-enrolled their child at Stamford were the academic growth and happiness achieved at Stamford.
