The European International School (EIS) in Ho Chi Minh City is where every student is prepared to be a responsible global citizen of the 21st century. The school focuses on academic achievement and multiculturalism. This goal is accomplished through the schools accreditation as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School implementing the Full IB Continuum from Early Years to Grade 12. The curriculum starts from IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), and IB Diploma Programme (DP). EIS Ho Chi Minh City is very first institution to be authorised on the implementation of IB MYP. EIS HCMC also promotes a multi-cultural learning environment. With students from over 25 countries around the globe, the school makes sure that every student learns diverse languages, values and culture.
Though English is the language of the school, the students can learn additional languages like French, German, Spanish and Vietnamese as well. Moreover, the school is also inclined in letting the students learn about the values and culture of Vietnam while gaining full appreciation of the values, traditions, and people of Europe and beyond. Thus, EIS HCMC promotes intercultural understanding and respect by focusing on the local and international learning needs, views and opinions. Learning, enquiring, and caring for others – this is what EIS HCMC students aspire to be. It is attained through the schools’ trans- disciplinary curriculum that develops each student to be creative and practical problem solvers. In addition, they also encourage open communication amongst parents, teachers and students making it possible to attain every child’s unique potential.
Every child individual learning needs is then identified and more learning and development opportunities is applied. This is also attained through EIS HCMC’s diverse and rich after school activities wherein students are given space and time to develop their artistic talents, social competencies, physical endurance and skills, as well as having fun.
