An international education
Leading to international qualifications
Grades 6 to 8
The International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) is a rigorous academic program designed around the critical needs of the adolescent brain. Our program has a holistic focus, with special attention paid to the development of students' personal dispositions and values of international mindedness. Aimed at inspiring and engaging students, units cover globally relevant themes such as communication, entrepreneurship, challenge, and responsibility.
Our Middle Years program offers most subjects in English, including: Mathematics, Science, English, Humanities, Art, Music, Physical Education, and STEM. Two subjects— Vietnamese literature and culture and Vietnamese history, civics, and geography— are offered as part of the program in Vietnamese.
Grades 9 & 10
Students in Grades 9 and 10 undertake a bespoke curriculum that blends Cambridge International Exams (IGCSE) with school-based learning and Vietnamese language and culture.
We implement a holistic educational program following an 80/20 format. 80% of the curriculum is taught in English while the remaining 20% is taught in Vietnamese, focusing on the essential elements of the Vietnamese curriculum.
In order to fulfil our holistic educational philosophy, TH School offers IGCSE courses in the core academic subjects of Mathematics, Science and English, and bespoke courses in Humanities, Visual Arts, Music, and Physical Education. Courses taught in Vietnamese focus on essential elements of Vietnamese Language, Literature, History, Geography, and Civics.
Grades 11 & 12
Students in Grades 11 and 12 take exams at the end of each year in order to earn a Cambridge International A Level qualification.
The A-Level program is a demanding pre-university internationally recognized course of study that leads to external exams at the end of Grades 11 and 12. TH students in Grades 11 and 12 take three A Level subjects of their choosing supplemented with required courses in English Language and Vietnamese Literature, History and Culture.
At TH School, students are provided with three meals and two healthy snacks per day in accordance with the Nutrition Board. The school uses TH True Milk and organic vegetables from FVF and other high quality suppliers. The nutrition team operates independently and regularly monitors the quality of each meal at school. With "self-serve" meals, students are encouraged to develop independence in making nutritional choices.
TH School has a well-equipped medical facility, with nurses available on campus for assistance when needed. In addition, the school maintains close contact with the students' families so that students' health and medical needs are met. The school also conducts periodic health checks at international standard hospitals and sends students to these facilities when they have signs of poor health and need the advice of a doctor.
The boarding house is equipped with modern facilities including spacious bedrooms, a common room, and numerous study rooms to meet the daily recreational and educational needs of students. The boarding house is monitored closely by qualified supervisors who manage the dormitories 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. On the weekends, students are given the option to go on residential trips or stay in school for co-curricular activities.
