The school is made up of two beautiful campuses – Primary and Secondary – and is conveniently situated in one of Ho Chi Minh City’s most charming districts. Students are educated to construct an understanding of knowledge and their world through carefully developed learning and social skills. Offering a progressive educational approach set within modern learning environments we utilize 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.

Creating a Culture of Achievement


Energy emerges from students who are flourishing, physically and mentally healthy, and who are aligned with their inner selves.


Students are encouraged to uncover their learning in a collaborative, constructive environment in which they deepen their understanding and create new perspectives.


IS HCMC’s Culture of Achievement encourages students to learn the skills and attitudes necessary to take control of their learning and their lives.
