- Parent stories
VAS focuses on building a close relationship between families and school to create a comprehensive educational environment for students.
I just hope that all the experiences that I have had at VAS as a student before will also be the same with what my children are about to take in at VAS. There are so many reasons and factors for my family to continue enroll my children at VAS but I myself am an eyewitness of my decision!
In terms of cultivating students' moral values and caring for others through social activities, I realized that my children learned what the living values are and how to care for others. That is what I like best when sending my children to VAS.
During 12 years of study, I can say that my son never lies. He is a very decent and righteous person. He’s never cheated at any exams. Of course, we all have different purposes, different requirements, but in general we still want our children to become good citizens who would contribute to the society and the country in the future. As for me, VAS has met all the requirements.
The most impressive difference that makes VAS distinguished from other public schools is the teachers-parents meeting. At VAS there are one-on-one meetings between the teachers and the parents, which is just great for mutual sharing and understanding.
My children have been studying at VAS Hoang Van Thu Campus for 11 years now. They show improvement every day, not only in their studies but also in social communication. They are confidently talking and expressing their ideas and thinking with all teachers. They are also proactive in their learning and these are the things that I am most impressed and why I send my children to VAS.
I have a special feeling towards the school. My children have spent 4 years here and all that time their childhoods were cherished and, as a parent, I feel assured when my children study at VAS. I hope the school can always maintain its advantages as a healthy educational environment with teaching excellence and high nutrition quality.
My three most satisfying aspects of VAS: 1. So far, our family is so contented to see our child come to school happily, healthily, and actively. My child is comfortable with the environment 2. The close and friendly relationships are observed not only between the teachers and the students but also between the school and the parents 3. As I mentioned at the beginning, the curriculum is bilingual. My child can sharpen his Vietnamese language to maintain his origin whereas his English is improving to meet the needs of this era of globalization.
Before moving to HCMC, my husband and I did a lot of research to find a school that fits well with my child’s personality and my family’s expectation. While my child’s Vietnamese is somehow limited, his English is excellent, and he is very active.
Talking about my children’s improvement at VAS, I have to admit that each of them will have their own strengths but in general, they have all become self-reliant students. My children’s confidence has grown even more than expected. Their confidence is not limited to communication, but it also showcases in language use, in expressing their signature as well as in their own understanding of themselves.
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to express my appreciation to VAS teachers and the Board of Management. They wholeheartedly take good care of not only my son but also all other pupils. In case of having some difficulties about my son’s mentality, life perception or behavior, I could easily contact with the administration staffs or the homeroom teacher. They are all eager to help to produce good results.
I can see my child, Khanh Hung, improve day by day. It may be due to his natural development at his age, or the education from the family, or the school. What I really appreciate is the school does so well at boosting my child’s confidence. He can communicate his ideas clearly in front of the class. He is confident about what he is sharing in public which is something I couldn’t do when I was his age. The next thing I have observed is his social awareness and attitude are improving. For example, he never litters in public places or at the prescribed places. I think that comes from education about the protection of the environment protection at school. I think this kind of behavior is very necessary for Vietnam nowadays.
The 3 most satisfying things from VAS, in my opinion, include the following. As I mentioned before, I appreciate the bilingual programs offered to the students in both Vietnamese and English.
