The EUROPEAN International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) is located in District 2, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. EIS is a day school from Early Years to Grade 12 (ages 2-18) and an officially accredited IB World School offering all three International Baccalaureate Programmes (PYP, MYP, DP). The school currently has more than 260 students from 25 nationalities enrolled forming a true international community. EIS has a distinguished body of teachers from a wide variety of home countries. True to their global citizenship, many have worked in more than one other country before coming to Ho Chi Minh City.
English is the language of instruction throughout the school, but students in all grades from Toddler to Grade 12 have the opportunity to learn additional languages such as French, German, Spanish and Vietnamese. EIS offers an intimate school atmosphere with high standards of education and a rich and diversified schedule of extracurricular activities with a focus on sports, arts, music and social commitment complements the academic programme.
Sport is an essential part of EIS life, for it promotes integration into the community, strengthens the body, stimulates the competitive spirit, teaches fair play and helps to develop a balanced personality. Sport is taught by qualified teachers who are attentive to the safety of each child. Challenge and safety are the key words in very varied programmes offering entertaining, ambitious and demanding activities.
The EIS Campus is comprised of eleven buildings. The campus design was inspired by the concept of blending in with the natural environment and the creation of an ‘educational village’. Classrooms and special purpose rooms, such as Science laboratories, Music and Art rooms are spacious and well equipped with the latest technology. Students are encouraged to participate actively during their lessons. Their hard work is appreciated and displayed not only in the classrooms but also around the school. It is important that students learn in comfortable and stimulating surroundings. Sports facilities at EIS include a basketball court, dedicated swimming pools for Early Years and Primary students, two astro-turf sport pitches, one small and one large, plus adjacent tennis courts for After School Activities.
EIS sets a high priority on working together with the EIS Parent Council and the parents’ community considering it essential that parents and teachers communicate on a regular basis to ensure each child’s well-being and progress. The school welcomes parents’ opinions and support, encouraging all parents to take on an active part in the school community.
Being a Nobel Talent School and part of the Nobel Education Network provides EIS the opportunity to exchange students, teachers, curricula and research. For the moment, the European International School can draw on eight other Nobel Talent Schools in the network. The geographical distribution of these is wide and reaches from Europe to the Middle East to South East Asia.
EIS also has a strong bond with Educationsuisse. This association is the central point in the global network of 17 Swiss Schools abroad and it supports EIS.
