This is the only high school in Ky Son – one of the most 74 disadvantaged districts nationwide, about 250km from Nghe An province’s Vinh city. More than 95% of its students belong to ethnic minority groups in the district. 

The 2.6ha school was rebuilt with the funding of 210 billion VND (8.95 million USD) from Trung Nam Construction Investment Joint Stock Company (Trungnam Group). It has a total of 245 rooms, including 171 boarding rooms for students and teachers.

National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue inquires after local students.

From the 2023-2024, Nghe An will grant scholarships to 120 Lao students at the high school and the provincial ethnic minority boarding school.

N.A. Chairman Hue said the scholarship program will help neighboring Laos in high-quality personnel training, while contributing to promoting the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.
