The American School in Vietnam (TAS) is located in Ho Chi Minh City's Thu Duc City. After ten years at the original campus in Thao Dien, TAS has just moved to a new, state-of-the-art 30,000 sq. meter facility along a tributary of the Saigon River in the An Phu ward. The school's current student population is approximately 400.

The mission of The American School, a private Early Childhood to Grade 12 college preparatory school, is to educate the whole child in a multicultural environment aligned with American educational models. We nurture individual abilities to produce creative, confident, and critical thinkers who are self-aware, socially conscious, and prepared for an ever-changing society.

The school provides the tools, opportunities, and human resources to inspire and promote inquiry and development of self-confidence. Students will be equipped to become leaders with inquiring minds through critical thinking, writing, reasoning, investigating, problem solving, and collaborative experiences. A strong partnership of motivated students and caring faculty and parents affirms and challenges each person within a dynamic American educational program enriched by a multicultural setting in Vietnam.

TAS promotes high standards of excellence by enhancing student learning for leadership in a global world.
