Renaissance is an international British School providing an education that has similar characteristics to an education in an independent school in the UK and incorporating a strong international dimension.
The British character of the school is embodied in its ethos, curriculum, teaching, and care for pupils and pupils’ achievements. Our school promotes a vibrant and creative curriculum, designed to inspire achievement at all levels.
Our programs are based on the British system (the National Curriculum for England), modified to meet the international profile of our pupils.

The Pre-school 'Future Kids' program is based on the UK's Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. At the Primary level, the curriculum taught incorporates the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
At Secondary level, the school again follows the British framework until the final two years, when pupils are prepared for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
The curriculum covers the following key subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Music, Drama, Information and Communication Technology, Health and Physical Education, Art and Design and selected Modern Foreign Languages including Vietnamese, Korean and Mandarin. Vietnamese Language, Culture and Social Studies are provided for Vietnamese pupils.
Working in partnership, pupils, parents and teachers will help inspire and develop in our young people a love for learning and the ability to celebrate, respect and appreciate diversity. A balanced, child-centered Renaissance approach enables them to explore the creativity possible within both the arts and sciences.
