Education is a journey, and at AIS, we support all students, whether they are with us for some or all of their schooling. AIS is well-known for the ability, commitment and care of its teaching and administrative staff, which ensures that students are fully and carefully prepared for university. AIS offers a wide range of academic, artistic and creative subjects; and teachers cater for each student individually, guiding them academically and socially.

At AIS, all students are given a high quality, fully accredited international education across all year levels. The School does this by identifying and supporting the academic, social, emotional and physical needs and abilities of each student.

In Kindergarten and Primary School, we teach the IB PYP. In Year 7-11, we teach the University of Cambridge Secondary Programme with the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE); and in the Senior School we teach the IB Diploma Programme. As a result of this rigorous curriculum framework, with its high expectations and standards, AIS graduates consistently receive above world average IB Diploma results and are offered places at leading universities worldwide, many with full or partial scholarships.

With over 1,150 students from 40 countries, AIS is a truly international community. All tuition is in English, and comprehensive language training and support is provided to those students for whom English is a second language.

Beyond the classroom

AIS offers a wide range of opportunities to develop students as well rounded individuals. Camps in Years 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 to regional and international destinations; local and international sports competitions and extra-curricular activities like music, debating, chess, swimming, soccer and basketball are all important in teaching our students valuable social, emotional and leadership skills. AIS is also a very community-focused school, with many events throughout the year, for our own community in Vietnam and beyond.
