Primary School

OVERVIEW

Primary school is the starting level of the General Education program, BUILDING the first pillars for THE FRAMEWORK OF COMPETENCES, QUALITIES AND KNOWLEDGE of students during 12 years of school. This is the reason why Edison took the keyword “TO CONSTRUCT” as the design orientation for the primary education program, as a stepping stone “TO FORM” (SECONDARY SCHOOL) and “TO BE READY” (HIGH SCHOOL) start gluing feathers to their arms, helping them prepare to step out on their own to join the “Social Factory”, to become a kind, autonomous, positive person who reaps success and happiness.

We understand the most important desire of parents for Primary school age is that their children can learn, experience, and grow up in a friendly, and inspirational environment where every school day ends with overwhelming joy. The joy of parents and students is also the happiness of educators in Edison.

In the same approach, the Edison Primary Education Program is designed for students to enhance students’ COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT: to be fully educated and nurtured to harmoniously develop the physical and mental aspects, have a healthy living and learning routine. At the same time, the children begin to develop a proactive learning method and expand their capacities naturally; build the basic knowledge base on Languages (Vietnamese and English), Mathematics, Science, Technology, etc. .; train study skills, social communication skills, etc. to form the essential QUALITIES and COMPETENCES, with the harmony of virtue, intellect, physicality, sense of beauty, activate and develop each student’s potential to the fullest.
