Critical Transition Years
Middle School is a critical transition period in a child's life that fosters skills to empower successful adults. Students move away from the homeroom teacher model and gain independence and enhanced rigor through instruction by subject specialists for every class. In addition to guidance from expert faculty in content areas, teachers will focus on the IB Approaches to Learning to build research, reflection, language, and social and communication skills to be effective learners and foster success in the high school years and beyond.
American Standards: Building A Strong Academic Foundation for Global College Destinations
The foundation of the Stamford curriculum is the proven American Education Reaches Out and Common Core Plus standards. The adoption of grade-level standards ensures that students have the skills and concepts in each subject to be ready for success in the next grade level. Ultimately, students are better prepared for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and universities and colleges globally. A particular focus on math, literacy, and sciences helps set this curriculum apart from other through-train IB schools. At Stamford, students learn through an engaging IB-centric inquiry-based approach that promotes hands-on learning and how to apply their knowledge across multiple subjects. Using the curriculum standards as a framework allows teachers to accelerate and personalize instruction to maximize student growth. Ongoing assessments throughout the year ensure students stay on track for successful graduation.
