The Horizon International Bilingual School in Ho Chi Mihn City, Vietnam differentiates itself from other international schools by employing a bilingual education system. They use curricula that have been proven effective in the West. More specifically, they follow the Bilingual Programme based on the Cambridge International Examinations that is also aligned with Ministry of Education requirements. HIBS aims to provide what they believe to be the best holistic approach to a child’s learning by taking into account their intellectual, emotional, physical, moral, and social well-being. This is because the school believes that preparing children completely gives them a bigger chance of succeeding in their future endeavors as responsible members of society.
At HIBS, children are not the only ones given the chance to grow as the teachers are also provided with enough room to better themselves. In turn, this will help educators provide the best possible learning experience for the youth. The school’s philosophy incorporates universal acceptance because they believe that the celebration of diversity is the key to progress. As an advocate of learning, this school strongly supports parents’ role in their children’s education. Because of this, they ensure that mothers and fathers are involved in their child’s learning. By creating a learning environment that complements their homes, HIBS ensures that students grow into responsible individuals who have a positive contribution to our society.
Because of all these, HIBS was able to produce top-notch graduates, with global acceptance in universities in the United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Japan, the United States, Australia, Singapore, Turkey, Canada, France, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland, Poland, New Zealand, Malaysia, Finland and South Korea. These students were armed not only with academic knowledge but are also taught about how good moral character takes a person to greater heights. These and more were developed thanks to the academic and extended programmes as well as voluntary summer camps that allow students to take advanced classes in English for Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exams.
