ISHCMC, the first international school in Ho Chi Minh City and first to offer the full International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, recognises the important role education plays in allowing students to make choices in often complex and ambiguous environments. ISHCMC utilizes the flexibility of the International Baccalaureate programs to encourage an inclusive, broad and balanced approach to learning through inquiry, exploration of concepts, principled and caring citizenship, creative problem solving, collaboration, communication and connectivity.
So why does the IB prepare students for life after high school?
- University faculties regularly note IB students’ passion for discovery.
- IB alumni are extraordinarily well prepared for the academic requirements of university coursework.
- IB students contribute to discussions in a meaningful way. They do not shy away from challenging questions and, once they know the answer, follow up by asking “why?”
- IB students regularly deliver stimulating presentations and drive excellence in group assignments.
- IB students are infused with the academic integrity that is a fundamental value of universities and colleges.
- IB students have a deep understanding of various cultures and views, bringing an appreciation of new views to both their academic study and their involvement in local and wider communities. Their international mindedness complements the missions of the best tertiary institutions.
- IB students tell us they bring this commitment to community and others to their activities and leadership roles at university and carry it throughout their lives.
- IB students transition well to challenging university settings and show resilience and determination in their work. In academics, they have the confidence to approach new or unfamiliar subjects or material.
- IB students are active participants in a wide range of aspects of campus life, as well as focusing on their academic development.
- IB students have developed an ability to reflect on their learning and to articulate how they learnt. They have learned that critical reflection is an important academic and life skill.
