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.
By embracing the philosophies of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), we encourage students to become independent learners and help them to make connections between life in school, life at home and life in the world. By helping students to see that learning is connected to life, a strong foundation for lifelong learning is established.
Lessons are child-focused and engaging. Children use their imagination and curiosity to explore, learn and develop through play and guided learning challenges. Play is prioritized, and provides children with opportunities to inquire, explore, discover, create and experiment.
Develop their communication and cooperation and expressive arts skills while also ensuring that the necessary reading, literacy, and mathematics within our safe and supportive environment, our youngest learners knowledge is acquired.

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.

I would like to share with you my experience with EIS. We are a family with 2 children aged 5 and 7 and we have been living in Vietnam for 4 years already. I think I can say that we finally found the school our kids (and also we as parents) really like. EIS has a broad multicultural environment that mixing all possible nationalities. The teachers for both kids are perfect and we even hear their names at home many times. EIS works as a community. We experienced other schools in HCMC as well but at EIS parents are truly part of the school (for sure only if they want themselves). What we also value is accurate but not over-extensive communication from school. You receive all necessary information without being “spammed”. I highly recommend EIS to all families who are moving to HCMC. It is great place to have your kids at school.

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.
