Welcome to Middle School

Mingalabar! On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students – Welcome to Yangon Academy – Home of the Wolves! My name is Mike Gordon, and I am the secondary school principal, serving my sixth year at Yangon Academy. It is a privilege to work at a school with such dedicated, caring teachers and with such wonderful, kind students. Together, our school community strives every day to live-out our Mission:

Yangon Academy is a dynamic international school…which prepares students for excellence in university and life. Our community inspires students to love learning and to contribute positively within a diverse and ever-changing world.

With our School Mission at the forefront of everything we do, and, as we begin a fresh start on our newly-renovated K-12 campus, the excitement and enthusiasm here are palpable to all of us. And while we eagerly look toward the future, we also wish to remember and congratulate the Class of 2022! Our alumni are now enrolled at leading universities from around the world, and this is a testimony not only to the students’ exemplary perseverance and outstanding scholarship, but also to the love and sacrifice from our supportive, amazing parents. Congratulations to our parents!

Under the leadership of our School Director, Mr. David Miller, Yangon Academy has flourished over these many years and continues to grow, with purpose-driven, schoolwide improvement as our constant goal and beacon. With our American-curriculum framework, Yangon Academy is College Board-approved as both an AP Exam Center and an SAT Testing Site. Although our professionally-certified faculty are mostly from the United States, our program of study is internationally-minded to ensure we are promoting the skills, habits, and dispositions, which are critical for the success and happiness of our 21st Century Global Citizens.

From rigorous academics, to diverse offerings in the arts and athletics and to a broad menu of student clubs and activities, the secondary school seeks to ignite within each student a passion for learning and leading through integrity and courage. Yangon Academy is a special place because of its faculty, staff, and students, so if you would like to learn more about our school community, please give us a call or make an appointment for a visit – we hope to see you soon. Let’s Go Wolves!
