Stamford American International School (SAIS)

Bilingual programme: Mandarin-English
Annual tuition fees: $30,338-36,490
Age: Pre-K to Grade 5
Highlights: No additional cost for the bilingual programme

SAIS’ bilingual programme offers “50/50 exposure to both Mandarin and English” to students who have the ability or commitment to go beyond the school’s daily Mandarin classes. Classes are taught by one bilingual teacher and the daily timetable is divided equally between the two languages.

The bilingual programme follows the IB’s Primary Years Programme (PYP), and learning is based on the challenging American Education Reaches Out (AERO) standards.

The school says: “Our aim is to develop children to become bilingual, biliterate and bicultural… We recognise that some students have increased ability or commitment beyond daily instruction, so they have the option to be part of our Bilingual Programme from age three at no additional cost.”
