Why did parents choose EIS?
Ikoma Family - From Japan
Elijah attended a preschool in our previous country of posting and a kindergarten in HCMC. Although he was extremely well looked after by his 2 previous schools, trouble was he still could not read. We enrolled him into EIS and within a few months he came home, looked at the TV and said ‘Sony’. There has been no stopping him since. In my past experience in my interaction with EIS’s current leadership and team, it could be hard not to see that a fertile and international environment has been created for which children are nurtured to grow. The built environment of the campus plays a significant and pivotal role to facilitate such growth in the children. Rather than a large institutional building, the facility is scattered into an organic friendly and conducive learning village. This fosters greater interaction amongst all members in the school as well as a healthy dose of vitamin D every now and again. We feel blessed to have found EIS for Elijah and his sisters. It is truly a village of learning and a rare and exemplary educational model, not only academically but socially as well. Creating a valuable community of global citizens for the world.
Tan Family - From Singapore
We are Max (6), Jonas (9), Maren and Daniel. Coming from Germany we were looking for a school that
offers both – German and English classes as well as an international environment with pupils from all
over the world to socialize with. EIS was our choice! EIS offers our kids a learning environment full of
life, activities and encouragement. Class sizes are limited and the IB curriculum supports our kid’s school
careers in a smooth but also demanding and performance driven way. Max and Jonas enjoy the broad
offer of after school activities and the possibility to explore different subjects in a playful and supportive
environment. The big number of opportunities and events organized by the school to involve parents in
the school community complement the positive impression we have gained from EIS throughout the past
Kernbach Family – From Germany
Our son Lucian is now in his second year at EIS, in Early Years, and loves it! EIS offers top quality education while maintaining a fantastic community feel. The staff and teachers are professional and caring, and as parents we benefit from excellent, open communication from the school about what is going on, and how our son is progressing. We are super happy that we chose EIS.
