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.
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) encourages students aged 11 to 15 to explore the connections between academic subjects and the real world through experiential learning projects that build critical thinking skills.
The programme at EIS instils a positive attitude to learning by challenging students to solve problems, show creativity and resourcefulness and participate actively in their communities.
Aspects of the curriculum reflect real life by providing a framework that allows students to see the connections among the taught subjects themselves, and between the subjects and real issues.
There is an emphasis on the development of the approaches to learning (ATL) skills to encourage and improve communication, self-management, social skills, critical and creative thinking as well as research skills.
While English is the language of instruction, all MYP students study at least one other language, choosing from courses in Vietnamese and Korean Language and Literature as well as German, Spanish or French Language Acquisition. Our students are immersed in a multicultural learning environment which values multilingualism.

Ikoma Family - From Japan
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.

Chunwei Family - From China
My family has been part of this community for more than 3 years now and has seen so many positive changes in the school as it continues to grow and expand. What impresses me the most is the Open
Door Policy which applies throughout from the teachers all the way up to the senior management. With
effective communication being so vital I find the schools pro active approach of using additional tools
such as Social Media, Weekly Newsletters and Class Weeblies very impressive I am always up to date
with all the events and happenings. New Ideas are always welcome and we as Parents are included and
encouraged to lead many activities throughout the school year. Excellent examples of these would be
International Language Day, Reading in Class, Family Fun Day and Movie Nights of which I make a point
of attending. Being a multicultural, multination school with 39 Nationalities represented throughout the grades I find their mission statement a true foundation on which the school values are brought to life by all members of EIS faculty. This is in turn instilled into the students from Early Years all the way through to High School. The growth and maturity displayed by the students is clearly visible through their development. Having been expatriated throughout Europe, The Middle East and Asia over the last 13 years in multiple locations my family and I have been exposed to various educational systems. When I was looking for a school for my 2 daughters EIS was the perfect fit, I love the campus with its unique design and clever use of space, the individual villas, the IB curriculum and the language program which is the best in HCMC. I would happily recommend EIS as one of the top Educational Institutions in Ho Chi Minh City.
