When talent goes hand in hand with academics 

Sara and her sister Maya – who also studied at Tesla – not only show excellent academic performance but are also talented in Drama. Passing more than 60 auditions, they landed the lead roles in Disney’s Newsies JR. Their parents are very grateful to Tesla for caring and encouraging students to develop their artistic talents on stage. 

“The Early Years and Primary Years background at Tesla is helping Maya and Sara achieve great success as they now have the lead roles in Disney’s Newsies JR through self-expression and communication with their group. Tesla has laid the foundation for children to build their confidence and demeanor. This helps them a lot even when they are no longer at Tesla.” – Mr. David Watson shared.

International integration and maintain Vietnamese identity 

Integrated International Baccalaureate Programme at Tesla  is a combination of the national curriculum and the IB framework. At Primary Years Programme (PYP), children study in a bilingual English-Vietnamese environment to ensure a solid foundation and balanced development. From there, they can easily progress to an environment where English is mostly used in the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and proficiency in the Diploma Programme (DP) with full use of English.

This is also the most effective method for children to achieve multilingualism. By allowing them to regularly use their mother tongue from a young age, Tesla Education always reminds them to appreciate Vietnamese, especially when English gradually becomes a global trend. Compared with the monolingual education of most international schools, Tesla has brought new hope for global integration while preserving the quintessence of Vietnam. 

In addition, the Integrated International Baccalaureate Programme at Tesla also focuses on cultivating global citizens. The students participate in many extra-curricular activities and field trips in Vietnam and the region, thereby understanding urgent global issues such as saltwater intrusion, climate change, and environmental protection,… With the vision and mission of learning closely linked to real-world problems, Tesla School wants students to soon form an analytical, critical, interested, and apply their knowledge to real life, nurturing a global mindset for young generations.
