On 14 June 2020, APU International School held the Graduation Ceremony of the 2019-2020 academic year at HCMC’s prestigious Opera House to celebrate the success of its students throughout this extraordinary school year.
Ho Chi Minh City had been bucketing down for a few days before the ceremony took place; however, on the date, the sky was clear and the sun was shining brightly as if it wanted to celebrate the success of the students.
A once-in-a-lifetime school year it was, students spent nearly half of it at home, in front of the computers, meeting their teachers & friends through videos & audios. Nevertheless, the pandemic never stopped APU students from learning, excelling, and conquering great success. At the ceremony, a total of $5-million scholarships from prestigious universities in the U.S. and around the world were awarded to APU senior students, as proof of their capability and hard-work.
Among 86 students who graduated this year, 73% had a GPA higher than 3.0 and 14 students achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA, which was an exceptional record for the school. “It should be noted that out of 81 new graduates, 9 students are from the 11th grade. This clearly indicates that APU educational system has provided a means for its students to graduate early; thereby, they can save considerable time and money” – Dr Binh Tran, APU Superintendent proudly shared.
The 2019 – 2020 Graduation Ceremony concluded a challenging yet succesful academic year for both our teachesr and students. Congratulations to the Class of 2020! APU International School wishes you the best of luck on your next chapter of life, and as you soar to reach the sky, remember you have been and always will be APU eagles. We are proud of you!
