Middle-High School Principal

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to The American School (TAS). We are an established WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accredited school that has been in Vietnam for about 10 years. As a college preparatory school we provide a rigorous curriculum that includes the Advanced Placement (AP) Program which is highly regarded by universities in the United States.

In addition to providing a rigorous academic program, we also aim to support the development of the whole child. Your child’s safety and wellbeing are a primary focus here at The American School as we aim to create a safe and stimulating learning environment. We have included an Advisory Program that supports character development for our students. Our goal is to provide multiple pathways and balance that allow students to explore and experience new challenges that will allow them to be successful as 21st century learners.

At The American School, we are committed to helping all our students develop the skills to succeed in today’s world. It is hoped that our students will take pride in developing the 4 Cs of Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creativity which are vital in developing 21st Century ready citizens who appreciate that they can have a positive impact through their actions and relationships.

At TAS, we believe that academic and social responsibility are essential components in ensuring a balanced, valuable and varied education. We believe that parents, students and teachers make up a community of learners that must work together in a collaborative partnership to ensure learning is successful.

We look forward to you visiting TAS and becoming a part of our community.
