We look forward to seeing what they have learned and their learning process and reflections.

Class of 2020 High School Graduation will take place on May 26, 2020, at 8:30 PM Myanmar time. This time was selected in an effort to accommodate the many time zones. We look forward to celebrating this event. 
Yearbook DistributionYearbooks will be available at the end of the school year for pick up. We are going to stagger the distribution of the Yearbooks.  The Yearbooks will be on the front steps and parents or students will need to come and pick them up from there. Exact times of the day when books will be available will be announced nearer the time. If you have already left Yangon but are returning, you can pick up your Yearbook in August.  If you are not returning or would like someone else to pick up your Yearbook for you.  Please fill out this form.
                                                                                                  Have a great week and remember we are always open to your feedback. If you have questions or concerns do not hesitate to email the secondary office at
