Teaching & Learning

St. Paul American School Hanoi offers a world-class educational experience for children in grades 1 through 12. Our beautiful purpose-built school is located just 9 km west of downtown Hanoi, providing a calm, focused setting for incredible educational activities. All teachers are certified and qualified, with over 85% of teachers native to America, as we believe in bringing a truly American education experience to Hanoi.

We partner closely with our families to foster a diverse international school community that is aligned to our mission of Educating, Engaging, and Empowering our children. By following the Common Core Standards from the United States and by preparing our children for a wide range of Advanced Placement (AP) courses, we ensure that all of our student’s needs are met as they prepare for their post-secondary education whether locally or abroad.

With a world-class program including visual and performing arts, STEAM-focused learning, a wide range of unique extracurriculars, and several athletic opportunities, our students emerge from St. Paul American School Hanoi as well rounded, well prepared, and well educated global citizens.

American Common Core








When it comes to education, we believe that a holistic approach is necessary. Our goal is to develop our students’ intellectual, social, emotional, physical, mental, artistic and creative potentials. We accomplish this through a rigorous curriculum that is designed to meet the needs of our students.

Middle School

Our Middle School program serves students grades 6 through 8. Our program is specifically tailored to meet students’ individual learning needs while focusing on critical aspects of preparation for success; including but not limited to study skills, organization, and social-emotional support.

High School

High School, serving students in grades 9 through 12, is where our students engage in meaningful discourse about their experiences in life and their plans for the future. Our students engage in rigorous academic courses, while also pursuing their passions in becoming well-rounded individuals. As leaders in our community, our high school students have multiple opportunities to use their skills to enhance our school culture.
