The teachers at Olympia are experienced teachers, who graduated from top Vietnamese and international schools, such as University of Oxford, University of Nottingham, University of Warwick, etc. The offline learning program is designed under the coordinated research and development of Marianapolis high school and Olympia’s academic departments in the last 5 years to exploit the strengths of both general education programs in an optimal way.
