About Us

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).

A Welcome from the Head of School

The European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) is a fantastic international school. As soon as you walk through the gates of the campus you find yourself immersed in the beautiful, low-rise, green surroundings of an educational village where children, teachers and families thrive. People often remark, that the school is one of the most welcoming educational institutions that they have ever come across. They comment on how happy the students seem to be and describe an air of calm purpose that permeates the environment.

We are incredibly lucky at EIS, being blessed with not only a beautiful campus, but a vibrant, supportive and diverse community that is singly committed to making sure that every child has an enriching and challenging learning experience. To this end, our parents as well as teachers, work together to develop programs, activities and an academic program that is both contextually relevant as well as being rich in personal engagement and skills development.  

Philosophically, EIS believes in the importance of creating a safe and secure learning environment where students enjoy learning and do not fear failure. We value skills before content and growth more than results. Indeed, at EIS we are constantly encouraging our children to push themselves, take risks and try new things even if they are hard and result in set-backs along the way because we know that the best way to learn is through trying to improve and learning from your mistakes. The skills we teach at EIS go way beyond maths, science, reading and writing. We emphasise the importance of learning to collaborate, care for others, ask good questions, research thoroughly and reflect on learning. We teach our children to be resilient, to persevere, to be respectful of knowledge but also to question the source of that knowledge. In short, EIS develops young people who are truly independent learners, able to navigate their way through an increasingly complex world.   

EIS is proud to be one of only 2 fully accredited International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum Schools in Ho Chi Minh City, and one of an exclusive group of only 364 IB Continuum Schools worldwide. As an IB Continuum School we are more than just a regular IB World School. At EIS, we are fully focused on delivering the IB curriculum and developing students who demonstrate the values of the IB learner profile. Our three dedicated IB programmes – Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP) and Diploma (DP) – are specifically designed to transition students smoothly through their school careers and to, or from, other IB World Schools across the globe.

I hope that the above is just enough to encourage you get in touch and pay us a visit so that you can find out for yourself what it is that makes EIS so special.
