Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to United Nations International School of Hanoi (UNIS Hanoi).

With a rich thirty-five year history and guided by the principles of the UN, UNIS Hanoi provides a unique, high quality educational experience committed to inspiring and equipping our students to build a better world. 

The school has come a long way from its opening day in 1988, when as the first international school in Vietnam; it opened its doors to four students. Today, serving over 1100 students from over sixty nations, UNIS Hanoi brings a diverse group of individuals together around a common vision, mission and set of values that are the foundation of our learning community.

Our six values define our community - who we are, what we do and why we do it.

With a focus on our six values - Curiosity, Community, Integrity, Courage, Diversity and Responsibility, we strive to create a learning environment that inspires each and every one of us. 

But what makes us truly unique is our professional, caring and committed staff of over 300 individuals whose sole purpose everyday is to provide an outstanding educational experience for each child. 

I invite you to spend time on our website, learning more about us, our learning philosophy and all the wonderful resources we have for your child and even for our parents! 

If you're interested in enroling a child in our school, please visit our Admissions page. If you're keen to work with us, please visit our Employment page. 

I hope that one day our paths may cross and I meet you in person. 

Until then,

Jane McGee
Head of School
