Does the school extend learning beyond the classroom?
Students will leave school to enter a very competitive world where they will need all their academic ability, strength of character and personal skills to be happy and successful. Therefore, schools need to think beyond traditional education to transform learning. As part of Nord Anglia Education, BIS Hanoi has been able to enrich their curricula through unique collaborations with the world’s best – Juilliard, MIT and UNICEF.
BIS students’ learning of the performing arts will be enhanced using a repertoire of core music, dance and drama works encompassing a wide range of genres, styles and cultures designed and hand-selected by Juilliard. Juilliard curriculum specialists and artists frequently visit the school to bring excellence into the classroom and ignite the love of the arts in our students.
Nord Anglia Education has been working with MIT to introduce students to an innovative way of learning the STEAM subjects, which encourages creativity, experimentation, and teaches them how to apply their skills to real-world situations. Every spring term, Nord Anglia students will visit MIT to immerse themselves in a culture of hands-on problem-solving, meet leading MIT scientists, and learn about the new discoveries that will shape their future.
