I love the people at IS HCMC. I enjoy the many different nationalities, it is the best part of attending an international school. Before I came to IS HCMC, I used to go to a local Korean school, which is a totally different education system. The IB programme provides the opportunity to learn in different ways. Also it encourages students to have various points of view.

I think having co-curricular activities are fun because you can learn outside of school and make new friends. Also, because having after school activities allows me to do what I want to do.


IS HCMC Student

IS HCMC is a big part of my social life. The school door is always open, that’s the feeling IS HCMC gives you. You can talk with the school principal anytime, or even the Head of School. They stop by in the hall to talk with you. They spend time with you. If you feel like you need the school to be there for you as a parent, IS HCMC is there for you.

IS HCMC Parent

It’s very beneficial for my daughter in terms of building up skills, like speaking skills, writing skills, and reading skills. There’s a lot of choices in secondary. And then students have to choose by themselves. What I am, Who am I, What I like,…  my daughter loves that and she is willing to learn more.
