European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS)
With possibly the most convenient location in Thao Dien, the European International School Ho Chi Minh City is the only boutique international school, set in lush garden surroundings, oﬀering the International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum of studies for children aged 2-18.
Our vibrant, unified campus is a place where students, teachers and parents of all grade levels and diﬀerent backgrounds interact freely with each other within a home-from-home, tranquil village atmosphere. EIS oﬀers a truly diverse ‘melting pot’ of 40+ nationalities and global cultures, where students are encouraged to find their unique voice, to pursue languages, and to contribute to all aspects of school life.
Our passionate EIS teachers, with over 13 years’ average experience, are well-practiced in individualised learning methods. With a very low student-to-teacher ratio, particularly in the middle-high school sections of the school, students benefit directly from more frequent access to teachers.
Graduating IB Diploma students consistently achieve well-above the world averages, and have achieved acceptances into prestigious universities worldwide, often with significant merit-based scholarships. For the first time, all of our Class of 2020 achieved the IB Diploma, with 85% obtaining the challenging bilingual diploma.
EIS provides an outstanding world-class education for students, evidenced by our full accreditation status with the Council of International Schools (CIS), while also providing outstanding value for money.
Being a medium-sized school, EIS is large enough to offer a wide range of educational opportunities, while also being intimate enough to provide unique personal attention.
EIS follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme and offers Primary Years Programme (PYP) from Toddlers to Grade 5, Middle Years Programme (MYP) from Grades 6 – 10 and the Diploma Progamme (DP) from Grades 11 – 12.
