My son is studying there for grade 2, overall is good, my son loves to going to school everyday. How old is your son now? if you are thinking apply for Pre-Primary 18-19, it is a little bit late already since I heard from other parents said all PP classes are full now, but you can try to contact the Admission office for details before applying. Feel free to ask questions here, I am happy to answer you about Stamford.

My son is going to Y8 on coming August.  I have some questions to know if I don't pay debenture (select $30,000 per year) is ok for a seat?  All of teachers are nice and heart for teaching?  How many test or HW daily?  Any support for students if they get low marks?  The monthly school fees are expensive than other Int'l .  Is the school really good ?

I think no one can answer you y8 is so new. At the start most new school probably got low teacher to students so might be ok.

Teachers are nice there and all of them are teaching with hearts, but it is my personal feeling. It also depends on luck to have a good teacher. I think every school are the same.

Once the school offers you a seat, they will tell you that the debenture is needed or not, if not, capital levy options are either 150k or 30k per year.

Home works issue by weekly, just reading some books everyday, some maths solving on the iPad and one essay per week. No test or examination. Stamford uses MAP assessment method to measure your kid's academic process. But after Grade 8, Stamford will be more focusing on the IB program for the high school kids from Grade 9. At that time, more subjects will be added, for 8 and 9 Grade, it will be humanity and science., 11 to 12 Grade, it will be Economic, Physics, Psychology and History etc...

I would say it is worth to study at Stamford, You get what you pay for right^^

My son is in G6 now. The school is good in my opinion. The facilities are new and the teachers are nice. Also the courses are creative and interesting. For example,  in this term, the students  had a boat project.  They deigned and built boats by group and also had boat race in their swimming pool. This is really impressive. The school also has a lot of CCA s(after school activities) for students to choose. My son attends three CCAs per week after school.  Many CCAs are free. I heard the school has a good EAL program to support the children whose English has not yet meet the school’s standard.

Is there any parent here whom kid is taking EAL (English as an Additional Language) support @ Stamford?  Would be interested to hear parents’ comments on this support and whether it worths the cost.  Thanks in advance!
