The first private school in Hanoi to be recognised as a High Quality School by the Ministry of Education and Training (on outstanding standard of teaching, support services, programmes and facilities)
The Nguyen Sieu School (NSS) is one of the most prestigious in Hanoi in terms of satisfied students and achieving results across a range of international programs. Students range from Young Learners of English in early childhood curriculums up to Senior High school curriculums for UK qualifications. After the success of Cambridge learning delivery at NSS, NCUK IFY is another new UK stream the school heavily promotes to Hanoi students and parents to leading them to universities in a more direct way.
The NSS campus is located on a 10,000 square metre compound centred around a huge open school yard and assembly area, surrounded by numerous trees to create a green and beautiful learning environment. There are 103 classrooms on this well-equipped and modern campus. NSS students also enjoy the culture of language as the environment and practical learning at NSS. They go through all the stages as “in real life”: tasks – idea creation – strategy and business plan development – to project presentation. The school also encourages experience exchanges between NSS students or with students from other international schools.
NSS students are currently participating in International Academic Competitions and pupil exchange programs between schools around the world in the areas of science and technology, information technology, business, arts, and sports. In this multi-cultural learning environment, students have consistently achieved above standard of the national average scores under UK and Vietnamese Education. On the social side, NSS launched the Extracurricular Activity Programme, where students can start running clubs and events to be supported by the school.
There are currently 20+ clubs that have been set up under this programme.
