The United Nations International School of Hanoi is a private, non-profit coeducational English-language day school enrolling students from Discovery through Grade 12. The school is located in Tay Ho District, about ten kilometres from the city centre. The school was established in 1988 by agencies representing the United Nations, by way of a Memorandum of Understanding with the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training. UNIS is administered by a Head of School and governed by a nine-member Board of Directors, comprising both elected and appointed members.
The UNIS Mission is to encourage students to be independent, lifelong learners who strive for excellence and become responsible stewards of our global society and natural environment, achieved within a supportive community that values diversity and through a programme reflecting the ideals and principles of the United Nations.
Today UNIS offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (Grades 11-12), the IB Middle Years Programme (Grades 6-10), and the IB Primary Years Programme (Pre K-Grade 5). The curriculum does not follow any national system, but draws from a variety of English-language programs consistent with the needs of an international student body.
The school is currently accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organisation, the Council of International Schools, and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Our student body comprises over 1,000 students from 66 different countries.
Faculty consists of 121 expatriate and Vietnamese teachers from 20 countries, with the Administration and support staff of 148 professionals.
