Dedicated Early Learning Area
World-class teaching faculty

Care for the individual learning needs of each child
EIS is the place that is full of my high school memory. I met best friends and best teachers there. I felt very comfortable at school like I was at home. I would miss the time I spent with my friends in the small room to study and the small swimming pool where I really worked hard to carry out EE experiment.
What I have learnt from the IBDP
I learned the value of time management and independent learning skill. There were lots of tasks such as IA and WT that I needed to submit by the deadline.
Most memorable moment
My best memorable moment was the lunch time we spent with each other. After we ate lunch, we always gathered in the homeroom. We always competed to take bean bag and talked about daily life. Every day was full of different moments. I just could not forget the moment that we sit around together after lunch.
Kim Han Bin (Class of 2017)
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.

Chunwei Family - From China
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
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.
Stevenson Family – From Australia
This is our fourth year among EIS community in Ho Chi Minh city. We have two daughters at the school. One is currently in third grade and the other, our youngest, is in Kindergarten 2. The school has provided a safe and comfortable environment for them to learn and develop their skills both as individuals and as members of the community. Classes are small and the education is personal, so the teachers know their students and can tailor their efforts to individual student needs. Through the after school activities, the kids complement their classes and get to know students and teachers from other grades, enhancing their interpersonal relationships and strengthening community links. Parents involvement is highly appreciated and encouraged by the school. There are a lot of occasions during the year, like events and assemblies, when the parents can join and watch the kids work and progress. Also, the school organizes a series of events at the campus for the whole community, out of school hours and in a relaxed atmosphere, having the parents and the kids a chance to get together, so the kids can meet their friends and the parents and teachers of all sections get to know each other. EIS is a warm and welcoming community of caring students, teachers, and parents.
Gazquez Family – From Spain
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

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 Europe
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.
