International Schools of North America City Campus (often known as SNA) offers a dual curriculum which instructs students in a Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training as well as an American programme aligned with the State of California Content Standards and Educational Frameworks, that’s why International Schools of North America is unique among all schools.
Besides this City campus, there are other SNA campuses in Vietnam, including the International Schools of North America Trung Son Campus.
Students that graduate from this prestigious school will receive two distinct diplomas from both programs and can be used both in Vietnam and North America. The school employs a holistic approach to learning, allowing students to have a wide variety of co-curricular and extracurricular activities.
Students are also encouraged to develop good values and life skills, most especially in the Vietnamese culture while training them to be globally responsible citizens in their own community. On top of that, this international school has highly-esteemed faculty members and staff who are very passionate and devoted to teaching. Most of them have advanced degrees under their belts.
The school also ensures that teachers and parents collaborate in the student’s learning by maintaining a positive relationship between them. This is because SNA strongly believes that both parents and teachers have significant contributions to the success of the children. This is where the school differs from others — it is the only school that provides a boarding programme that encourages students to be responsible and independent while growing academically.
Overall, SNA is a student-centered facility they make sure that the students’ personal development is respected through and through. Aside from being academically inclined, students also need time to relax and find relief from the stress brought by their rigorous academic studies.
With that in mind, the school has built a medium-sized and well-equipped facility that offers the students a place to showcase and build physical strength and teamwork under the supervision of a qualified fitness instructor. This facility provides students with a wide selection of fitness tools: from cardio equipment to weightlifting machines. In addition,
SNA has been offering students with extra-curricular activities such as martial arts, performing arts, sports and living skills. Students are also allowed and even encouraged to join activities outside the classroom. Given the chance to develop new interests, these students are offered opportunities to socialise with other people inside and outside the school.
