British International School

International School, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The British International School (BIS) is a selective, independent, co-educational day school. It provides a British style education for an international student body between 3 and 18 years. It is the largest international school in Vietnam and operates from three purpose-built modern campus sites in the vibrant and exciting Ho Chi Minh City. The school provides a high quality education in first class facilities resourced to the highest level. Although our students are academically able, some do not have English as their first language. Consequently, the school operates an ‘English as an Additional Language’ (EAL) programme for those children who initially need extra support.

Most academic school in HCMC! While there is quite a selection of International Schools in HCMC, I was told in advance that this was the most academic one and that became very evident within a short while as a parent there. The kids at this school are the ones that are generally more driven and more serious about their schoolwork. There is certainly more homework to be expected and a fairly intense IGCSE and IB program that nets some great scores. I feel that the 3.5 years spent at BIS HCM has truly prepared my son to be exceptionally competitive in the IB. I would not have imagined that we would have found this level of education in Vietnam. Whilst there have been a few average teachers along the way, for the most part my son has benefitted from some truly remarkable teachers that have had a great impact on his learning style and passion for those subjects. These are teachers that I know he will never forget and are the reason we have been immensely pleased with our choice of BIS for our time in Vietnam!
