Why have 3 graduating pathways?

Each student is unique, and their aspirations are also different, this is why we offer the flexibility of 3 graduating pathways. All of our graduation pathways include a Stamford American High School Diploma which is recognized in countries around the world. Some students seeking additional challenge may choose to pursue the International Baccalaureate ‘Course’ qualification or the International Baccalaureate ‘Diploma’ qualification, which both have their own unique set of requirements.

Stamford follows an American-style curriculum, blended with the best teaching practices from an international perspective. The school’s curriculum is based on rigorous and proven American Education Reaches Out (AERO) and Common Core Plus standards that develop a strong foundation in the core subjects such as English, humanities, science, and mathematics. To foster curiosity and independent thinking, we deliver this curriculum using inquiry-based lessons and nurture every child through a personalized learning approach.

Some common questions about our graduating pathways:

What if my child only takes the Stamford American diploma?

The Stamford American High School Diploma will be accepted at Universities worldwide, we are currently a member of the Council of International Schools, and are seeking full accreditation before our first graduating cohort.

Is Stamford selective about who can take the IBDP*?

No, we welcome all students who are interested in pursuing the Diploma Programme to apply.
