Speaking at the ceremony, Colonel Nguyễn Trọng Vinh, Chairman of the Council of Nguyễn Siêu School said: “This is an honour and proud moment for all our staff and students and the recognition of the State for the unremitting efforts during 30 years of construction and development of the school."
Established on September 11, 1991, Nguyễn Siêu was one of the first four private schools in the country.
During the first ten years after its establishment, in the midst of difficulties throughout the country, the school had to move locations eight times, but Nguyễn Siêu was still quite famous for being the first boarding school for students from grade one to grade 12.
This was also the first school teaching Foreign Languages and Informatics, creating favourable conditions for students in future international exchange and integration.
In 2003, Nguyễn Siêu school became the first non-public school to build its own school and in 2005 was recognised as the first non-public school to meet Việt Nam's national standards.
In 2014, it became the first high-quality school in Hà Nội, one of more than 10,000 schools in the world recognised as a Cambridge International School, and voted by Microsoft as a school with excellent application of technology.
Today, Nguyễn Siêu has become a Cambridge International Bilingual School imbued with Vietnamese identity, proudly possessing a list of national and international achievements.
The school's students have achieved top three positions in the world and achieved the highest score in Việt Nam in the annual Cambridge international exams. With its prestige, the school has been invited to be an official member of the Cambridge International Education Advisory Board.
100 per cent of educators at the school meet and exceed professional standards, of which more than 60 per cent are classed as excellent teachers.
The school's teachers won 249 awards for excellent teaching at all levels; 503 innovative topics are classified by the Industry Science Council, of which 36 are recognized at City level; 100 per cent of students passed the national high school graduation exam. In the last seven years, 100 per cent of students passed into universities. The school's students won 3,755 prizes in excellent student competitions at all levels and 100 per cent achieved Cambridge International Certificates.
