“From the offset, our children loved the warm welcome of the school, the spirit of friendship and the extra-curricular activities available at ISHCMC.”

Our family moved here four years ago following a job transfer. I chose International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) for my children, Gaspard and Capucine, on the recommendation of a French family that already had children attending the school.

My children were in the French system at the time, but we were looking to improve their English speaking skills. From the offset, my children loved the warm welcome of the school, the spirit of friendship and the extra-curricular activities available at ISHCMC.

I particularly liked the open-mindedness of ISHCMC, in addition to the teacher availability for both children and parents.

I enjoy living in Ho Chi Minh City because there is good security, it has great places for teenagers to hang out, sunshine all year long and the city still has an authenticity about it. It’s also a great place to be located to facilitate further travel around Asia. It’s easy to find European food, and there is a huge international community- including French people- in Ho Chi Minh City. Just make sure you bring your sense of humor and some patience!
