HIGH SCHOOL (GRADES 9-12)

We live in a world without borders. To meet the realities of the 21st century global economy and maintain Vietnam’s competitive edge into the future, students need to compete not only with their Vietnamese peers, but with students from all across six continents for the jobs of the future and occupations that are not yet defined.

At True North School, students gain the necessary skills to be successful. Our courses enhance their ability to master developmentally appropriate skill sets such as critical/analytical thinking, logical argumentation, effective writing, and close observation. Students are exposed to a foundational core curriculum designed to sharpen skills and habits of mind.

APPLIED COURSES

All of our Applied Learning courses have an authentic application, which provides open-ended challenges that focus on deliverables and real-world benefits for audiences beyond the classroom.

DISCOVER UNIQUE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN STUDIES AND REAL-WORLD

These courses encourage academics by asking students to identify and deepen their passion for a subject, allowing them to discover unique connections between their studies and real-world endeavors. 

FOCUS ON ACADEMIC RIGOR

Students employ higher order thinking and processing skills directly related to a field of study and practice the skills essential to a particular career field. They experiment with creative solutions to challenges and cultivate resilience in the face of new challenges or failure. In short, students learn by doing. 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP)

Advanced Placement is a program in the United States created by the College Board which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students.

PREPARE FOR UNIVERSITY

AP (advanced placement) is a program of classes developed by the college board to give high school students an introduction to college-level classes and also gain college credit before even graduating high school.

STRENGTHEN YOUR TRANSCRIPT

Many high schools give extra weight to AP grades when calculating your GPA. Taking an AP class and getting a B is often a better choice than getting an A in a regular course.

GET A HEAD START ON COLLEGE REQUIREMENTS

Taking an AP class is great prep for the acing the corresponding AP test. Held every May, AP tests are scored on a scale from 1–5. If your college offers AP credit, a score of a 4 or higher could allow you to earn college credits without paying college tuition. Some students are able to skip the entire first year of college this way, thus cutting the entire cost of their college education by one quarter.

RISE TO THE TOP OF THE CLASS

Advanced Placement classes show admissions officers that you’re ready for college-level work. Academic rigor is a critical factor when universities evaluate applications.
