    Stamford American School

    Have a school tour for the kiddos. Any parents out there sending theirs to Stamford?

    Some thoughts about the school would be great.

    The school is quite new, I think this is its first academic year finishing now.

    I have heard good things from friends who have gone on tours but seems most of the feedback I've gotten - even from the school itself - has been based on its sister school in Singapore.

    I did some fancy school tours several years back. It's worth keeping a filter in mind to separate how much of what they are showing you is marketing glitz for parents (e.g. rows and rows of shiny iMacs, or the name dropping of prestigious associated overseas organisations), and how much of it is relevant to the children (class sizes, average teacher experience, access to remedial teaching).

    This x 100.

    Happy and competent teachers make a school.
