Educational Philosophy & Programmes

Educational Philosophy

Our teaching and learning environment is centred on the philosophy and programmes distributed by the International Baccalaureate Organization - in particular, the IB Learner Profile - in addition to the school's Guiding Statements (Vision NarrativeValues and Learning Principles).

Academic Programmes

The diagram below presents an overview of how the school combines its Learning Principles with the IB Learner Profile. The Student Outcomes depict our 'promise' to students who gain a first-class education with us.  


Students are challenged within an academic programme that is concept and skills driven. The curriculum, therefore, provides students with a 'toolbox' of necessary skills and knowledge to help them succeed in tomorrow's uncertain world. Rather than simply learning knowledge and content, we now know that it is critically important that students be able to analyse, evaluate and expand their knowledge to compete against automation and artificial intelligence.  

In April 2019, our school was re-authorised by the IBO to provide the full continuum of IB programmes. This re-authorisation, coupled with the full accreditation awarded by the Council of International Schools, provides third-party evidence of the quality of our programmes.

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."

"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."

From Canada

"Wonderful EIS Experience - We are a Vietnamese Canadian family with our 4 years old daughter Megan attending EIS HCMC since one year. After researching many schools in HCMC we decided on EIS because of its safe and caring environment that is not too big nor too small for Megan."
