Message from the Head of School 



The European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) is a unique learning environment. On campus you find yourself immersed in the beautiful, low-rise, green surroundings of an education village where children, teachers and families thrive. People often remark that the school is a most welcoming place and comment on the calm purpose that permeates the school and the happy demeanor of the students. 

We are incredibly lucky at EIS, being blessed with not only a beautiful campus, but a vibrant, supportive and diverse community that is singly committed to making sure that every child has an enriching and challenging learning experience. To this end, we work together to develop programmes, activities and an academic programme that is engaging and challenging.

Philosophically, the School believes in the importance of creating a safe learning environment where students enjoy learning and do not fear failure. We are constantly encouraging our children to push themselves, take risks and try new things to exceed learning outcomes. We emphasize the importance of learning to collaborate, caring for others, asking great questions, researching thoroughly and reflecting on personal actions. In short, we develop young people who are truly resilient, independent learners.

We are proud to be one of a few authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum Schools in Vietnam, and one of an exclusive group of only 364 IB Continuum Schools worldwide. We are focused on delivering the IB curriculum and developing students who acquire the skills and values of the IB learner profile to enable them to transition smoothly through their school careers and to other schools, colleges and universities globally.

Please contact me anytime at if you have any questions or concerns. 

I look forward to welcoming you at our educational village!
