(VEN) - The An Thi High School, established in September 1962, was one of the first high schools of Hung Yen Province. Guided by the motto “Teaching well - Studying well”, the school has continuously achieved recognition for its achievements.

The An Thi High School is located in An Thi Town – the center of An Thi District. Initially, it only had one principal and nine teachers with three 8th grades and very poor facilities. Now, it has a total of 77 staff, including 66 teachers, five administrative staff and three seasonal employees.

Despite the difficult start, the school paid great attention to building a strong teaching team, always encouraging teachers to assume a high sense of responsibility for their students’ education and career.

The An Thi High School is also a pioneer of the provincial education and training sector with its innovative teaching methods and student-centered approach, testing and assessing competencies in the fields of Mathematics, Reading and Science according to the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA).

Over the past five years, 81 to 92 percent of school students have been graded “good” or “excellent”, with almost all passing their graduation exams and over 80 percent passing university entrance exams. Many graduates went on to attend well-known universities, such as the People’s Security Academy, the Foreign Trade University, the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam, and more.
