Primary School

Primary School forms the foundation for a child’s future learning. European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) offers a challenging academic education in a creative, warm, and holistic learning environment that enables children to reach their full potential. We see the world as a classroom, and thus much of the teaching in the primary grades is done outside the traditional setting.

Our Primary School welcomes students aged three to ten in two sections that work closely together: an early years programme for children aged three to five and the IB Primary Years Programme for children aged six to ten.

What makes our Primary School unique:

  • EIS offers the acclaimed International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, a globally recognised standard of excellence in primary education.
  • Our learning approach is inquiry-based and trans-disciplinary, creating a strong foundation for project-based learning, which is the focus in later grades.
  • One of our core values is health education, taught through all subjects and general school life. This includes a robust physical education programme, lots of time outdoors, nutritious homemade food, a positive school climate, and an emphasis on social development and mental health.
