Middle School


At Nam Uc Scotch AGS, students learn an Australian-standard academic program from Grades 1-12. Seriousness in learning is a cornerstone of teaching and learning at Scotch Middle School, as this is when students are entering the stage of developing the abilities and attitudes required to become independent learners.

Australian Middle School Program

With the goal of training students to become global citizens capable of independent thinking and self-development, Nam Uc Scotch AGS brings the Australian Curriculum to Middle School students. To preserve Vietnamese culture, students will study subjects prescribed by the Vietnamese Minister of Education and Training. For international students, the school also offers more Vietnamese classes for them to be familiar with this language.

The program not only focuses on experiential learning and develops social, creative, and leadership skills but also helps students develop the life skills needed to meet the challenges of the future.

The philosophy of training at the secondary level at Scotch AGS not only exploits the knowledge aspect but also puts parents in the position of companions in the development of students. The school creates favorable conditions for parents to be with their children in their learning journey, as well as periodically monitoring and giving feedback on the abilities of each student. This combination helps each student develop in accordance with his or her own strengths.

  • Grade 6: Students begin to be aware of mental health care; they connect and communicate well with others; they begin to ask challenging questions and seek answers; They make informed decisions and act responsibly. The curriculum focuses on developing information technology skills in these two groups of classes.
  • Grades 7–8: Students will face new challenges in their personal or organizational lives. At this age, the curriculum focuses more on protecting physical and mental health and managing personal relationships.
  • Grade 9: The curriculum equips students with knowledge about society, economy, and citizenship, helping them apply that knowledge to their social lives outside of school. Students will begin to choose their favorite fields and professions, thereby making corresponding subject choices.

Highlights of the Australian Middle School Program

Develop critical thinking

Critical thinking is a skill applied in most subjects and in life. It helps students recognize right and wrong things, think flexibly, analyze, and synthesize information accurately, thereby improving problem presentation, persuasion, and creativity. Teaching methods for subjects at the secondary level are designed in the form of projects and group assignments. Therefore, students have the opportunity to work together and learn from each other, thereby developing creative thinking in each student.

Increase the chance of real experience

By applying STEM (integrated Mathematics, Engineering, Science, and Technology) in the teaching method, students can self-apply the knowledge they have learned in their real lives. The teaching way conveyed through STEM methods is clear and practical. Combining both learning and practice, students will acquire knowledge faster and remember it longer, especially in subjects that require experience and experimentation, such as Science, Technology, Math, etc.

Cultivate cooperation and problem-solving skills

Teamwork is one of the most important skills in an international school environment where students need to communicate in many different languages and have cross-cultural exposure. Therefore, the curriculum is designed to help students cooperate and conduct research on their own, form and develop teamwork to find solutions to problems, record information, write reports, presentations, etc. Students are trained to have a good attitude, work effectively with group members, and improve teamwork.

Promote physical education

Physical education is a priority training field for secondary schools, especially in team-based and cooperative subjects. This is the stage at which students thrive in both health and intelligence. Therefore, the learning environment at Scotch AGS is specially designed with many spaces for physical activities such as football, basketball, swimming, etc. In addition, the school also creates conditions for students to practice their sports skills and develop them into talents for competition and performance.

Shaping your favorite field

From grade 9, in addition to the eight required courses in the program, students will have an additional subject in Work Studies. At this stage, students can participate in many working activities to choose their favorite fields, thereby shaping their personal career interests and easily orienting themselves for high school, university, and the future.

Closely monitor the quality of student learning

With the goal of helping parents accompany their students’ development, Scotch AGS uses the SEQTA platform, a modern educational management system widely used in more than 2200 schools globally, with more than 395,000 students using it. This system is the connection between the school, parents, and students. Information about learning, assignments, schedules, assessments, and feedback will be shared transparently, making learning support easier and more effective than ever.

Co-curricular program

Scotch AGS strongly believes that a variety of co-curricular programs will help young people be versatile and develop comprehensively in different areas of their lives. Therefore, the middle school offers co-curricular activities in four areas: Sports, Art, Science, and Social Activities. From Grades 6 to 9, attendance in co-curricular activities is mandatory. Students are able to select lessons of interest from a list of school activities, mainly in the form of clubs, with an emphasis on developing and cultivating specific skills or talents.
