Welcome to the European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS), one of the few fully accredited International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum Schools in Vietnam offering three dedicated IB programmes – Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP) and Diploma (DP).
EIS has a Student Council in the primary school and in the middle and high school. They take an active role not only in bringing ideas and suggestions to the table for discussion, but increasingly they are taking a role in shaping school direction and strategic planning. They regularly meet with members of the Senior Leadership Team.
One of the crucial elements of an International Baccalaureate education is the need to provide students with real-world and authentic issues and problems to address. Student Council offers our young ambassadors a chance to deal with such real problems to find genuine solutions. It is always a pleasure to see how the critical thinking skills they have learnt in the classroom can be translated into solving school-related issues.
In the last academic year, our Student Council has had significant input into our school Vision Narrative, has promoted healthy food options in the canteen, and led countless events.
