Primary & middle school system: Top 4 international schools in Hanoi

No 1: UNIS Hanoi (United nation internation school)

UNIS, established in 1988, is one of the first international schools in Vietnam. Currently, the school has over 1,100 students from more than 60 countries. UNIS admits students through a comprehensive application process, which includes academic transcripts, recommendations, standardized testing (for grades 3-11), and official high school transcripts (for grades 9-11). With a quality curriculum and very good facilities, the tuition here is therefore not low. This is also one of the schools with the highest tuition fees currently. The school is located within the Ciputra urban area, covering an area of 92,109 square meters – equivalent to the size of a shopping center. This is also the first school in Vietnam to utilize District Cooling technology, providing cooling for the entire school campus.

Despite high tuition fees, successfully enrolling in UNIS has never been easy, especially for students from countries like Vietnam and Korea. The number of registrations from students from these two countries is too much while there is a fixed rate regulation. UNIS is the first school in Asia to teach the International Baccalaureate program. Additionally, UNIS Hanoi is the only non-profit international school in the capital. The school also prides itself on having a dedicated and high-quality teaching staff. Profiles of all teachers are posted on the official website to build trust with parents. Does UNIS deserve to be number 1 in the list of best international schools in Hanoi? Please give me your opinion via our email.
