Welcome to High School!

Welcome to the High School section of the UNIS Hanoi website. I hope you’ll find the answers to many of your questions on these pages and links. It is an exciting time to be a member of the UNIS Hanoi community, with changes happening all around campus this year.

One of the on-going changes at UNIS Hanoi is centered around the school’s facilities and learning spaces. In line with our Strategy 2020, various phases of construction will open and be constructed this school year. As an educator, it is fantastic to join a school devoted to students’ emotional and social growth. Research is clear that the aesthetics of learning spaces can have a significant impact on effective teaching and learning.

Another change happening this year is the separation of our former Secondary School into two divisions – a Middle School and a High School. With an emphasis on inquiry-based learning in the IB Middle Years Programme, coupled with the rigor of the IB Diploma Programme, UNIS Hanoi’s High School aims to promote a love of learning and appreciation of service as we prepare students for our rapidly-changing world.

Please take some time to explore these pages. Should you have any questions or concerns, please let us know! I hope to see you soon on campus.

Welcome to UNIS Hanoi!
