We speak to a few students and teachers at Stamford American International School to find out how the school creates a sense of belonging for them.
Stamford American International School (SAIS) prides itself on being “a big school with the heart of a small school”. You’ll find that the teachers and students interact with each other like a close knit community, despite the huge campus and its considerable student population. This is because SAIS is committed to developing a deep sense of belonging for its students, which includes even the youngest ones at its Early Learning Village to the most senior students in the High School.
So how does SAIS make its students and teachers feel like they belong? We recently had the chance to speak to a few of them, and here’s what we found out:
From having a blocks corner where preschoolers can exercise their creativity by to providing students with an immersive and supportive environment – SAIS ensures that every student’s well being is looked after in ways that are unique to their needs. For Elias, a High School student, this comes in the form of the school’s drama programme: “I feel like SAIS makes me feel like I belong by offering a Drama Program in which I can express myself freely.” As for Ms Aparna, a teacher at the Early Learning Village, it’s about feeling like home: “Home is usually a place where you feel safe, you feel loved, you feel valued – and that’s exactly how I feel at Stamford.”
If you’re looking for a school with a caring and empowering community for your child, then SAIS should definitely be on your list! Book a campus tour, or drop a note to speak to their friendly Admissions Team today.
