ISHCMC Alumni Clariss

Beyond academic excellence, ISHCMC taught me to appreciate the uniqueness of each individual and the importance of collaboration in a global community. These lessons have been invaluable in my personal and professional life, enabling me to connect with people across different cultures effortlessly.


I love the people at ISHCMC. 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.
