European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) welcomes students of all nationalities who would benefit from our educational programme and whose parents share the school’s Mission and Objectives.
Admission is granted to a student when it has been determined that the School has an appropriate programme and resources to meet that individual’s learning needs. Applications for both immediate and future entry are considered at any time throughout the year.
The birth date cut-off for placement in a particular grade is the 31 August in the academic year (commencing in August) of admission. The child must have turned the appropriate age on or prior to the 31 August for the grade in question.
An intrinsic aspect of the school’s vision narrative is the importance The European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) places on family and the community and that, as an educational village, we truly value “the diverse contributions that are made by the community, families and individuals to our supportive and happy learning environment.” New students settle in and make new friends quickly due to the supportive, safe and family style environment on campus. On arriving at EIS new students are assigned buddies from their homeroom to assist with orientation, timetabling and familiarising themselves with the school culture and parents are welcomed by our supportive Parent Representative Council also. In addition to this parents are able to communicate easily with Homeroom Teachers and support staff to assist with any questions they may have. At EIS there is strong parent involvement and support throughout the school which further enables a smooth transition to the school. The warmth and openness of our educational village ensures that all new students and their families are sure to feel welcomed and a part of our community almost as soon as they walk on campus.
Our friendly and dedicated Admissions Team ensure that all the administrative details which need to be completed before your child’s first day are clear and are always on hand to provide help and assistance outside the remit of the academic staff and parent representatives.
Furthermore, the school has partnered with suppliers across a broad range of industries both here in Ho Chi Minh City and across other parts of Vietnam for our community to enjoy the EIS Loyalty Programme which is a card of discounts and benefits at many shops and service providers. The card is absolutely free to all EIS Students and Parents. We hope you enjoy the benefits that this card provides! The below full list is updated every month.

We were always together. It was so fun and I was so happy with our Grade 12 friends. Everyone had helped me when I couldn’t catch up the conversation and class. I was very grateful to everyone. Every moment was precious.
What I have learnt from the IBDP
How to set up the goal. How to be independent person and to be cooperative person.
Most memorable moment
Our daily lives were the most memorable in my school life. We knew our trade mark (habit, quote, facial expression, …). Those time was for understanding each other and being closer.

Sato Family – From Japan
When I decided to write some comments about the European International School, I first thought that it would be the easiest task ever. I was wrong. It took me literally a month before being able to put into words my admiration and profound gratitude for this school. I couldn’t decide where to begin with. Everything is great about the EIS: how teachers are available, personally, by phone or email, night and day, weekday or weekend; how education is presented as a joyful and delightful experience for our children; how students are encouraged to discover, enquire and question; how parents are directly involved in the school’s life and how the school management listens to them... The list is so long. For my family, however, the most impressive characteristic of the EIS is the empathy and will to help of all of the staff: when our youngest son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, not only was he kept as a regular student, but the EIS actively helped us to implement every single measure we decided to take with regards to his therapy. The level of commitment, acceptance, empathy and will of understanding demonstrated by the EIS towards our son and our family is simply beyond comparison. And for this, we will be forever grateful.
Kliegl 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.
