Blue Sky Academy, opened in September 2010, is a private bilingual school in north central Vietnam. Our motto is "a better start for a better life." The school's mission is to help shape students based on UNESCO's four pillars of learning: learn to do, learn to know, learn to live and learn to live together. We currently have 250 students from Kindergarten (as early as 2 years old) through grade 7 (lower secondary). You can find some pictures on the schoolwebsite,flickr photos,andfacebook page.
Blue Sky Academy is looking for passionate teachers at Primary and lower Secondary level to teach English.
