Hanoi - School Report Question and Answers

Aside from school fees, are there required expenses such as uniforms, laptops/tablets, musical instruments, or field trips that parents are expected to cover? What are the approximate costs?

Yes. All students are required to wear uniform polo shirts (about US$17 each). P.E. shirts are required for students in grades 4-12 (about US$17 each) and P.E. shorts are required for students in grades 6-12 (about US$13 each). We also purchased the uniform hoodie (about US$22) for when it is cooler as all tops must be approved uniform wear. Students are allowed to wear undershirts instead, as long as they are plain white. Students in Elementary School do not have to purchase devices (they have classroom tablets) and we did not have to pay for my children to go on field trips (unless we wanted to order lunch to go from the cafeteria.) Hot lunches are available at the cafeteria at the approximate cost of US$3 per meal. - Nov 2020
