What does it mean to be a UN School?

UNIS Hanoi has a multifaceted identity and at its centre is its relationship with the United Nations.

We are not an agency of the United Nations, but we are one of only two UN international schools in the world, educating agents for change.

We define our identity with the United Nations as follows:

The United Nations International School of Hanoi is committed to inspiring and equipping young people to build a better world. We bring the world together on one campus and guided by the Principles of the United Nations mentor peace makers and problem solvers. Our young global citizens are curious, compassionate and confident to take action against issues confronting humanity; bold in the face of complexity and resilient in an uncertain world. We are a learning community that cares enough to create a better tomorrow. Starting today. Together.
