In recent years, the Lawrence S. Ting School has been appreciated by many parents and students as one of the City’s high-quality educational institutions because of its comprehensive curriculum, active teaching methods along with modern and advanced facilities.
Being built by Phu My Hung Corporation in 2007, Lawrence S. Ting School (LSTS) officially came into operation in August 2008. The School was the educational project founded by Mr. Lawrence S. Ting (Vietnamese name is Dinh Thien Ly) – Late Chairman of Phu My Hung Asia Holdings Corporation – formerly known as CT&D Group – with the desire to contribute to the Vietnam’s Education, and train generations of useful citizens for the society and country.
After nearly 15 years of operation, Lawrence S. Ting School is increasingly appreciated for its teaching quality, becoming a reliable choice of many parents when their children enter high school level. According to statistics, the “competition” rate (total number of applied students per the enrollment quota) in the 6th and 10th grade of LSTS in recent years has always been at a high level. Specifically, the “competition” rate of 6th grade enrollment in the last 3 school-years has been around 2.5. These are really impressive numbers because even though the private school, Lawrence S. Ting School requests the quite high admission conditions. It is requested students having a total score of Math and Vietnamese subject at the end of the 4th and 5th grades at 36 points or more.
It can be said that the training quality and the learning environment are the decisive factors that create the attraction of Lawrence S. Ting School. Mr. Chen Wei Hung – Head of school, said: “The school’s educational goal is to train generations of students to have comprehensive capabilities, vision, abilities of leadership and service spirit to become global citizens. With this goal, based on the basis of the educational curriculum of the Ministry of Education and Training, Lawrence S. Ting School has developed training contents towards high quality and efficiency, through three programs (core program, extension program and development program). Among them, the core program with 4 subjects (Reading Comprehension & Expression, English, ICT (Information Technology and Communication) and Scientific Research) plays the role to help students equip with the core skills to learn effectively in all subjects”.
