Gateway International School – Hai Phong Campus

Gateway International School – Hai Phong Campus

EDGE Advanced

Gateway International School is a leading international school system in Vietnam. The holistic nature of the school’s curriculum encourages social, emotional and academic learning, teaching students to be self-motivated and self-disciplined global citizens.

Gateway International School’s Hai Phong campus was designed to conserve natural resources and lower carbon emissions. A variable refrigerant volume cooling system and energy-saving lighting were installed to reduce the school’s energy use, while dual-flush water closets, water-efficient urinals and low-flow faucets were installed to reduce the school’s water use.

The design of the Hai Phong campus also includes numerous green spaces to provide students with an opportunity to connect with nature. Gardens were planted next to the classrooms, where students study biology, plant trees and engage in experiments. Raising students’ environmental awareness will help shape the next generation’s interaction with the natural world.

The Hai Phong Branch has received an EDGE Advanced certificate from SGS Vietnam.
