Nguyễn Thượng Hiền High School (Vietnamese: Trường Trung học phổ thông Nguyễn Thượng Hiền) is a public high school in Hồ Chí Minh City, Vietnam. It was established in 1970 under the name Tân Bình High School. One of four advanced public magnet schools in the city, Nguyễn Thượng Hiền ranks thirtieth nationally in the 2012 Vietnam university admission ranking[1]


In 1969, the school rented some rooms of Nhan Van Private School (now Banh Van Tran Primary School) to conduct its first academic year 1969/1970. In the next academic year, 1970/1971, the school relocated to its present location due to the completion of the campus construction. The new campus was a two-storeyed building with only 12 rooms.

In the AY 1973-74, the school was renamed Nguyễn Thượng Hiền School in honor of Nguyễn Thượng Hiền. However, twelve years later, the government decided to change the name to Nguyễn Văn Trỗi School. Soon after, however, the school was renamed again as Nguyễn Thượng Hiền High School.[citation needed]


The school covers over 21,000 m² of land and is divided into many blocks. The school now has 51 class-rooms with the average number of student per class in academic year 2009-2010 is 42.
