EIS is authorised by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organisation as an IB World School. Our IB programme is divided into the Primary Years Programme (Grades 1–5), the Middle Years Programme (Grades 6–10), and the Diploma Programme (Grades 11–12). The IB aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
The IB is world renowned for its high academic standards, commitment to multiculturalism and focus on developing skills that will prepare students for success in future educational endeavours and life in a global world. To learn more about the IB, visit www.ibo.org.
As an IB World School and an IB Continuum school*, The European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) is devoted to developing independent, lifelong learners who endorse the values of global citizenship. The IB allows the school to make sure that any content that is delivered is contextually relevant, authentic and differentiated to meet the individual needs of every child.
Students are empowered to understand not only what they have learnt but how they have learnt it. They understand how to improve, and how to learn from their mistakes. They are provided with opportunities to investigate areas of personal interest as well as vital global knowledge.
The academic program is concepts and skills driven. These concepts and skills take priority over simply learning knowledge and content, as it is understood that being able to analyse, interrogate and question knowledge is far more important than simply being able to regurgitate it. The real strength of an IB education are the tools that it provides students with to be successful and confident learners, who enjoy a challenge and understand that the learning journey and their approaches to learning are more important than the result.
It is no surprise therefore that IB graduates are often the most sought after by the world’s universities who regularly report that IB students are more rounded, balanced and critical thinkers than graduates from other systems. To learn more about the IB, visit www.ibo.org
We provide an innovative and positive learning environment for students in all grades.
*EIS is fully authorised by the International Baccalaureate (IB) as an IB Continuum School, one of only 2 in HCMC. Our IB programme is divided into the Primary Years Programme (Toddler to grade 5), the Middle Years Programme (grades 6–10), and the Diploma Programme (grades 11–12).
Ikoma Family - From Japan
We are Spanish family and our kids Valeria (6 years old) and Claudia (4 years old) started in EIS 3 years
ago when we arrived to HCMC. Our experience in the school has been amazing since the beginning and we have always felt as a part of a big EIS community with plenty of activities for the whole family (Xmas fair, Saturday movie nights, TET festival, United Nations day, …) and our kids have really enjoyed a multicultural experience together with teachers, school staff and their colleges from all around the world, they have learnt many things but the most important ones are to understand and valued different cultures, languages, traditions and celebrations. Definitely we will recommend the experience in EIS HCMC and we will miss EIS community.
Butragueno Antolin Family - From Spain
My family has been part of this community for more than 3 years now and has seen so many positive changes in the school as it continues to grow and expand. What impresses me the most is the Open
Door Policy which applies throughout from the teachers all the way up to the senior management. With
effective communication being so vital I find the schools pro active approach of using additional tools
such as Social Media, Weekly Newsletters and Class Weeblies very impressive I am always up to date
with all the events and happenings. New Ideas are always welcome and we as Parents are included and
encouraged to lead many activities throughout the school year. Excellent examples of these would be
International Language Day, Reading in Class, Family Fun Day and Movie Nights of which I make a point
of attending. Being a multicultural, multination school with 39 Nationalities represented throughout the grades I find their mission statement a true foundation on which the school values are brought to life by all members of EIS faculty. This is in turn instilled into the students from Early Years all the way through to High School. The growth and maturity displayed by the students is clearly visible through their development. Having been expatriated throughout Europe, The Middle East and Asia over the last 13 years in multiple locations my family and I have been exposed to various educational systems. When I was looking for a school for my 2 daughters EIS was the perfect fit, I love the campus with its unique design and clever use of space, the individual villas, the IB curriculum and the language program which is the best in HCMC. I would happily recommend EIS as one of the top Educational Institutions in Ho Chi Minh City.
