Ex­pe­ri­ence Viet­nam's first and only dual diploma cur­ricu­lum at IN­TER­NA­TIONAL SCHOOLS OF NORTH AMER­ICA

Oi Vietnam - - Troi Oi! -

THE I NTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS OF NORTH AMER­ICA (SNA) IS THE FIRST AND ONLY IN­TER­NA­TIONAL SCHOOL IN VIET NAM THAT TEACHES TWO PRO­GRAMS. THE US PRO­GRAM IS AS­SESSED AC­CORD­ING TO CAL­I­FOR­NIA COM­MON CORE STATE STAN­DARDS WHILE THE VIET­NAMESE SYL­LABUS IS FULLY AND COM­PRE­HEN­SIVELY GUAR­AN­TEED UN­DER THE MANAGEMENT OF VIET­NAM MIN­ISTRY OF ED­U­CA­TION AND TRAIN­ING (MOET).

US PRO­GRAM (GRADES 1 - 12)

The US pro­gram is not only de­signed for stu­dents who are al­ready flu­ent in English but also for those who are learn­ing English. The cur­ricu­lum and course books are quite sim­i­lar to what stu­dents in the United States are study­ing and meet WASC stan­dards.

At SNA, stu­dents will study from grade 1 to grade 8. From grade 9 to 12, stu­dents will study ac­cord­ing to a credit sys­tem and be cat­e­go­rized by sub­jects. Af­ter ac­cu­mu­lat­ing 248 cred­its, which is equiv­a­lent to the num­ber of cred­its re­quired for high school grad­u­a­tion in the United States, they will con­clude the course and graduate. SNA equips stu­dents with good knowl­edge to be able to con­tinue study in the United States as well as other coun­tries.

The US Pro­gram at SNA abides by Amer­i­can stan­dards and sup­port stu­dents to keep up with the univer­sity foun­da­tion pro­gram. SNA also of­fers ad­vanced math and nat­u­ral sciences classes which en­able stu­dents to ac­cu­mu­late col­lege cred­its right from high school. Long-term ac­cred­i­ta­tion by WASC is a tes­ti­mony to the fact that SNA has met the United States stan­dards to help stu­dents pre­pare for their fu­ture over­seas study. One year be­fore grad­u­a­tion, stu­dents will be trained for SAT cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, a pre­req­ui­site to en­roll in US uni­ver­si­ties. SNA has a team of qual­i­fied teach­ers as­sist­ing the stu­dents to ob­tain knowl­edge and skills to be­come global ci­ti­zens.

VIET­NAMESE PRO­GRAM FROM PRESCHOOL TO GRADE 12

Teach­ing syl­labuses in ac­cor­dance with MOET stan­dards, SNA has ex­cel­lent teach­ers of which two pro­fes­sors have been hon­ored with the "Ex­cel­lent Teacher" Award by Viet Nam Prime Min­is­ter. Uni­ver­si­ties highly ap­pre­ci­ate the Viet­namese cur­ricu­lum at SNA as it both main­tains its unique char­ac­ter and in­cor­po­rates in­ter­na­tional in­no­va­tion. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from SNA high school, stu­dents will con­fi­dently en­roll in any top uni­ver­si­ties around the world.

The Viet­namese cur­ricu­lum at

SNA strictly fol­lows Viet Nam MOET stan­dards. As stu­dents con­tinue with Viet­nam cur­ricu­lum, they will have the op­por­tu­nity to take more chal­leng­ing math and nat­u­ral sciences sub­jects com­pared to the US pro­gram. This also helps stu­dents main­tain and value Viet­namese iden­tity.

With the afore­men­tioned ad­van­tages, SNA will be a right choice for par­ents who want to prop­erly in­vest in their chil­dren’s fu­ture and for the lat­ter to de­velop com­pre­hen­sively when ex­pe­ri­enc­ing both USA and Viet Nam cur­ric­ula.
