Stamford American School uses the American standards-based curriculum and seeks to foster curiosity and independent thinking. The school delivers this curriculum using an inquiry-based approach across themes and nurtures every child through a personalised learning approach.
Although the school has adopted the American curriculum, it incorporates various elements to enrich the learning experience for children. These elements include the notions of global citizenship, special approaches to learning methods, international mindedness, service learning, building character and social-emotional learning.
These elements are included in subjects such as English, humanities, science, mathematics and innovation. The school uses a rich and varied combination of primary and secondary resources. In the end, students receive a holistic experience which helps in their overall development.
