One Community, Two Campuses
International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) is proud to announce that the academic year 2017/18 will see the completion of a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school campus in District 2. The new campus is less than 5 kilometers away from the present site on Vo Truong Toan Street and has been carefully designed to provide a safe and secure 21st century learning environment for 11-18 year olds, complete with the latest security and clean air systems. The new facility will allow the students of both primary and secondary age to flourish on campuses that suit their respective educational needs. It is scheduled that the new campus will open Autumn 2016. This will allow refurbishment and redevelopment of the existing campus as it is converted into a primary school facility that enables our younger students to fully beneﬁt from an inquiry based academic program.
The current school boasts physical facilities such as 75 classrooms, an indoor gymnasium, a large multi-purpose room, a 25m - 6 lanes swimming pool, a large outdoor pitch with an artificial grass playing surface and numerous covered and uncovered hard surface play and sports areas. There are also science labs, a mac lab, a makerspace, performing arts studios, a library media center, information technology labs, music rooms, art rooms, a canteen, a health clinic, an adventure playground, and a newly added early childhood center. These facilities help our students to become well-rounded, balanced individuals with a passion for learning in all its diverse forms.
The new ISHCMC Secondary School will oﬀer great opportunity for student learning through technologically advanced classrooms, collaborative learning spaces and senior student study areas. Unique facilities such as Vietnam’s first Innovation Center will help to prepare our students for the realities of the commercial world in the 21st century world. Full scale musical productions will take place in a new 350-seat theater with professional lighting and sound equipment, extending opportunities into the technical aspects of theatre productions. In line with our goal of producing well-balanced and healthy students, our new facility provides ISHCMC students with a wide range of facilities to support their wellbeing. The new campus will offer both outdoor and indoor full-sized basketball courts, roof-top sports ﬁeld, 25m - eight-lane competitive swimming pool with seating and tennis courts.
We are looking forward to expanding our offering to the ISHCMC community and ensuring that our students have access to top-of-the-range facilities which facilitate creative and collaborative achievement. Our two campuses will be united by the ISHCMC mission which is committed to creating a supportive, challenging learning environment which enables our students to be energized, engaged and empowered every day.
