From the High School Counsellors’…

Please read below for important information related to social, emotional, academic, and university topics in the high school.

Dear UNIS Hanoi Parents & Community,

We hope everyone had a relaxing summer/winter break (depending on your hemisphere). Currently, the counsellors are working to ensure that all students have a smooth transition into their new grade level – both returning and new students to our community. We are all excited for the start of the year and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Each week you will be finding updated information that is grade specific and high school related.

In the high school, counsellors work with students related to social, emotional, academic and university issues and topics. Brenda Manfredi (Grades 10-12), Franko Cifizzari (Grades 10-12) and Anwer Kamal (Grade 9) will be supporting your child. Please feel free to reach out to your child’s counsellor if you have any concerns.

TESTING

The ACT’s/SAT’s can only be taken by Grade 11 & 12 UNIS Hanoi students. Please see below for more information including testing dates for 2019-2020.

PSAT Exam for all Grade 10 students and optional for Grade 11 students
Wednesday Oct 16, 2019

SAT – Important:
College Board has taken extra security measure in test taker fraud.  If a student receives an email from the College Board to complete a survey or questionnaire, please do NOT ignore the email. It must be completed. Failure to do the survey would result in the student being removed from the test center roster and forbidden to take the exam that they have registered for.

Please note that this is a random selection process, and students do not need to panic if they do not get an email. We would like to remind students to check their junk inbox in case the College Board emails get delivered there by accident. Any questions, please see your counsellor!

International testing dates for the SAT are in October, December, March, and May. SAT Subject Tests will be available in October, November, December, May, and June. Students cannot sit the SAT and the SAT Subject Tests on the same day. If you have any questions, please see your counsellor.
