Another new international school in Singapore

A $300m international school, The Stamford American International School, is officially opened today. It provides American education leading to the International Baccalaureate (IB) program and education for children from 2 to 15 year olds.

Stamford aims to be the “leading American international school in Singapore”. There is no conflict with the established Singapore American School which serves expatriates. It just adds to the extensive range of international schools available for expat children in the island.

Tuition fees are in the region of $12,620 for a half-day nursery class, and secondary school education costs at least $31,000. “English as an Additional Language” costs $5,000 a year.

The school is located in Upper Serangoon near to the Woodleigh MRT station.
