EMASI Schools Release First Photos of Their Campuses
Many local Vietnamese schools have a very strong academic programme, and prepare children well for their exams. Children leave schools with good knowledge, especially in subjects such as Maths. The schools also teach students discipline, togetherness, and diligence, which are important qualities for them to become successful with their studies. One significant weakness of Vietnamese schools, however, is their facilities, which often are very limited or of a poor quality, and this affects the ability of their students to develop holistically and enjoy ‘non-core’ subjects like sports, music, drama, arts and IT.
A number of leading education experts joined up in HCMC to launch a group of schools that takes the best from the Vietnamese curriculum, and combines it with modern teaching methods from developed countries that focus on developing soft skills, as well as international-standard facilities. The Nam Long and Van Phuc campuses of the school, which will open in summer 2019 and welcome 1,000 students, boast a range of venues and facilities for children to enjoy: A large modern library, a multifunction gymnasium, a sports field, music and drama studios, international science laboratories, IT suites, Cambridge English classrooms, art studios, playgrounds, and rooftop gardens, to name just a few. Designed by a renewed international architecture bureau with input of the international education expert Mr Peter Gittins, who was the Founding Principal of ISHCMC school in HCMC in 1993, and with imported furniture and equipment, the new school will be a joy for students to explore.
The school is currently under construction, but the owners, who also own the Renaissance International School Saigon, have released first images of what the school will look like when it is finished. The images indicate that a lot of effort and funding have been invested in the school and its facilities, and the new campus will be comparable to leading international schools in the city. This reflects the Board’s commitment to bringing international-standard, modern education to Vietnam while respecting Vietnamese culture, values and strong elements of Vietnamese education programme. EMASI stands for the strengths of the new group of schools: English, Maths, Art, Science, and Information Technology, and the new facilities and design of the school show a strong commitment to these areas.
The school is now open for pre-enrollment and offers a range of pre-enrollment offers for children from 2 to 15 years old (Kindergarten to Grade 10) for the Nam Long campus and from 5 to 15 years old (Grade 1 to Grade 10) for the Van Phuc Campus.Share this page:
