Educational Philosophy

Educational Philosophy

As an IB World School and an IB Continuum school*, The European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) is devoted to developing independent, lifelong learners who endorse the values of global citizenship. The IB allows the school to make sure that any content that is delivered is contextually relevant, authentic and differentiated to meet the individual needs of every child. 

Students are empowered to understand not only what they have learnt but how they have learnt it. They understand how to improve, and how to learn from their mistakes. They are provided with opportunities to investigate areas of personal interest as well as vital global knowledge.  

The academic program is concepts and skills driven. These concepts and skills take priority over simply learning knowledge and content, as it is understood that being able to analyse, interrogate and question knowledge is far more important than simply being able to regurgitate it. The real strength of an IB education are the tools that it provides students with to be successful and confident learners, who enjoy a challenge and understand that the learning journey and their approaches to learning are more important than the result.  

It is no surprise therefore that IB graduates are often the most sought after by the world’s universities who regularly report that IB students are more rounded, balanced and critical thinkers than graduates from other systems. To learn more about the IB, visit www.ibo.org

We provide an innovative and positive learning environment for students in all grades.
