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 by universities 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.
