Pomelo School

Pomelo School (also known as trường Bưởi or Chu Văn An High School) is one of the three national high schools for the gifted in Vietnam. Established by French authorities in Hanoi in 1908 as a secondary school, it was upgraded to a lycée (or high school – Lycée du Protectorat) in 1931. In 1943 it moved to the Phúc Nhạc monastery in Ninh Bình. The school moved back to Hanoi in 1945, whereby Phan Kế An’s father, Phan Kế Toại, changed the name to Chu Văn An School – after the respected Confucian scholar,  Chu Văn An.
