About our School

Hanoi Toronto School is genuinely a ‘one of a kind’ school in Vietnam. Opened in August 2022 it is the only school in Vietnam offering international and integrated programs for Primary and Secondary (Grades 1-12) aligned with the Ontario, Canada Curriculum.

In Canada, the Ontario Curriculum is commonly used as it is designed to help every student reach their full potential through a programme of learning that is coherent, relevant, and age-appropriate. It recognises that today and in the future, students need to be critically literate in order to synthesise information, make informed decisions, communicate effectively, and thrive in an ever-changing global community. It is important that students be connected to the curriculum, that they see themselves in what is taught, how it is taught, and how it applies to the world at large. The curriculum recognises that the needs of learners are diverse and help all learners develop the knowledge, skills, and perspectives they need to become informed, productive, caring, responsible, and active citizens in their own communities and in the world.

Ontario has formed curriculum frameworks, resources, and achievements standards in subjects at both primary and secondary level. The curriculum is revised cyclically in consultation with curriculum developers, parents, teachers, and other interested parties. The Ontario Ministry of Education provides sample activities and rubrics for instruction that matches the curriculum by grade level and by subject, to enable teachers to incorporate activities and assessments in their teaching that are directly aligned with the curriculum objectives.

At HTS, this curriculum offering, equivalent to other major world curriculum, has been adapted to take account of our international and Vietnamese context.

International Schools Partnership (ISP)

HTS is an affiliated school of International Schools Partnership (ISP), one of the world’s largest international educational networks with 70+ schools in 18+ different countries.

Through collaboration with Lynn-Rose College, our students will receive the opportunity to obtain the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and study in Canada at Lynn-Rose by exchange or transfer.
