Preparing Middle School Students for High School Webinar
Stamford has adopted American standards-based curriculum, based on the rigorous and proven American Education Reaches Out (AERO) and Common Core Plus standards taught using an inquiry-based approach. This blend of the traditional and progressive prepares students for the rigor of high school and IBDP*, as well as nurturing curiosity and problem-solving needed for post-academic success.
In Grades 6-8, students begin to dive deeper into subject-specific content, skills, and concepts, making a transition from the heavily transdisciplinary nature of elementary studies to a blend of interdisciplinary and subject-specific areas of learning.
Mr. Neil Walton, our Upper School Principal, will introduce Stamford’s middle school curriculum and the Stamford approach to teaching and learning. Learn how our middle school program prepares students to take responsibility for their learning, develop proper time management, note-taking and project management skills. Join our webinar on May 29 at 1 pm to learn more.
Date: May 29, 2020
Time: 1 - 2 pm
Learn about the IBDP Program Webinar
This online session will be focusing on the IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme). The IBDP officially begins for students in Grade 11. However, there is a lot of preparation before Grade 11 to ensure both acceptance and success in this academically rigorous program. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the mission and values of the IB and how these are expressed at Stamford. The session will also include a brief overview of the middle school and high school curriculum and how it prepares your child for the IBDP.
When deciding if the IBDP is right for your child, there are many considerations to take into account beyond academics, and understanding the program as well as the entry requirements is an essential first step.
Mr. Galligan, our Academic Coordinator and Mr. Neil Walton, our Upper School Principal will share the core elements of the IBDP and what is expected of students before and after acceptance into the program at Stamford, as well as our tailored post-graduation pathways to support students of all passions.
