Date 2013-06-10 07:06:07 Location : Southeast Asia
Asia Pacific College Dong Nai (APC DN) is a K-12 bilingual school located in the city of Bien Hoa, Vietnam, which is approximately 28 km northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. We are currently looking for qualified native English speaking teachers to teach primarily young learners at Kindergarten and Primary with some classes at Lower Secondary School.
APC DN offers a dual curriculum with students taking the national Vietnamese academic program alongside a tiered English Program based on proficiency level (not grade level). For kindergarten, APC DN endorses a Montessori approach to learning while at the Primary and Secondary levels students are introduced to different subjects such as general English, science, social studies, and mathematics with the emphasis on a student-centered, communicative approach to instruction.
In just 3 years, APC DN has quickly grown to over 200 students (K 7 classes, Primary 7 classes, Lower secondary 4 classes) and will soon be opening a brand new school building in early August 2013. The new campus building will hold 14 brand new comfortable, air-conditioned classrooms equipped with computers and Internet access (~300 students capacity). There are two swimming pools, tennis courts, mini-basketball courts, a football field outfitted in astro-turf, an outdoor stadium, indoor auditorium, exercise facilities and a play yard for our little ones in order to best serve the recreational, leisure and fitness needs of our students and staff.
