# Curriculum

Secondary school is a place where students discover knowledge and enrich life skills

The Secondary School curriculum is refined to suit and apply the Proactive Thinking Method to foster students' positivity, initiative, and creativity through various learning methods. This helps students develop a range of skills: calculation, logical reasoning, analysis, synthesis, etc.

Students learn in parallel the Ministry of Education & Training’s curriculum and the Cambridge English Program. The National Secondary School Program is optimized, and the English Program aims to boost confidence in using English in all situations.

Entering grade 9, students begin to orient their future, proactively enhancing knowledge, understanding key topics effectively, and preparing for the important journey ahead.

Additionally, INschool supplements extracurricular classes to train students in effective group work and communication, presentation methods, critical thinking, and appropriate use of English in academic and everyday contexts.

# Curriculum


INschool students can study in the Foundation or Bilingual system. Students can easily change systems when needed, because they all study the programs mentioned above. The basic difference between the two systems is the number of lessons with foreign teachers.
Specifically, the number of English lessons of:

Foundation system: 10 lessons/week (of which 30% of the lessons are with foreign teachers).
Bilingual system: 10 lessons/week (of which 70% of the lessons are with foreign teachers).
The more time students spend studying with foreign teachers, the better their language reflexes and intonation in communication will be.
Class size: only 20-29 students/class

Achieved Certifications:

The learning outcomes and certifications are recognized and issued by the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, equivalent to those from leading public schools in the national education system.

Students follow a curriculum that prepares them for Cambridge certifications. The Starters program begins in grade 1, with students taking the Starters certificate exam by grade 3, Movers in grade 4, and Flyers in grade 5.

In lower secondary school, students continue with the integrated MOET program and prepare for the KET exam. By the end of grade 8, they take the Cambridge KET English test, equivalent to the A2 level of the CEFR, recognized worldwide.

After completing grade 9, students have three options: continue to high school at INschool, prepare for IELTS with foreign teachers, and complete lower secondary education; or embark on a new journey through the Vietnam-Singapore transition program at PSB Academy – a strategic partner of INschool, including a 6-month university preparatory course in Singapore (concurrently with grade 9).

If continuing high school at INschool, from grade 11 onwards, students can participate in the IELTS exam preparation and potentially achieve a score of 6.0 or higher, enabling them to confidently seek scholarships from top global universities.

Throughout grade 12, students focus on refining their knowledge and preparing for university entrance exams, guided and assisted by specialized teachers, aiming for high performance in the national high school and university entrance exams in June.
