Primary Years Programme (Grades 1-5)

Our Primary Years Programme (PYP) offers students aged six to ten the academic advantages of the IB curriculum, along with distinctive benefits unique to The European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS).

A low teacher to student ratio – which allows us to provide a differentiated curriculum with focused attention on the unique needs of each of our students.

Experienced, well-qualified, international faculty. All our teachers are highly trained and have years of experience teaching Primary years. We recruit educators from around the globe, because we believe our students can best understand global citizenship when their teachers are themselves globally representative. Our students also benefit from the expertise of our Vietnamese Teaching Assistants who support the homeroom teachers and students across the entire Primary Section.
