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 Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).
EIS is an accredited member of the Council of International Schools (CIS). We are one of a select group of international schools that have allowed ourselves to be externally assessed by experts. Globally, only 22% of international schools are accredited. Accreditation demonstrates that EIS adheres to the highest international standards of quality in all areas of school operations, and that other schools, colleges and universities recognize EIS academic reports and high school diplomas as being issued from a high-quality school in good standing internationally.
Furthermore, we are one of a few authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World Continuum Schools in Vietnam, offering all three programmes:
Our students acquire the skills and embrace the values of the IB Learner Profile, within an enquiry-based learning environment, enabling a smooth transition to other schools, colleges and universities around the globe.
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.

When we moved to Vietnam from Australia, our daughter had been at a small, child centred school and it was important to find a good fit. The European International School was perfect with its warm, friendly village feel. As Sage was still young, seven at the time, a nurturing, creative and inclusive environment was essential to her well being. We found this at EIS and it has continued to be so, Sage is now in her fourth year. The Primary Years Program was also a big drawcard for us as it is an internationally available program that Sage can continue on with when we move home. Parent involvement is encouraged, whether it be as a class parent representative, member of the Parents Council, community events or in the classroom. We have always found our ideas, concerns and opinions can be voiced and heard. I love that Sage has had the opportunity to be exposed to different cultures both through fellow students, teachers and also learning a second language. Although the facilities are limited at EIS, Sage has been able to join the choir and swim team which has competed internationally. The size of the school really allows opportunities for students which they may otherwise not have and is continually looking for ways to involve students, parents and teachers in school life.

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.

I was able to work freely in various fields such as social, politics and science as well as in the field of arts at EIS. In the IB curriculum, I was given opportunities to plan my own events and lead students to participate so I was able to easily determine my career path. Our teachers were very strict at first because they helped students create environments to lead their own learning or activities, but now that I think about it, it helped me learn the qualities of a true leader. Thanks to the many experience I had at EIS, I am now confident and proud to be in a college in the UK.
