Celebrating 25 years of learning, International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) is the most established international school in Ho Chi Minh City. Students are taught through a progressive educational model set in modern learning environments. Educators are experienced and trained to facilitate the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes, specializing in inquiry-led teaching. This, paired with international-standard safeguarding policies ensures that all children are safe and supported to reach their potential. ISHCMC students enjoy coming to school and inquire beyond knowledge taught in the classroom and develop life-long skills.
ISHCMC is proudly the first fully accredited IB World School in Ho Chi Minh City offering three IB Programmes (Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and the IB Diploma) for all students.
Founded in 1993, ISHCMC has more than 1,300 students aged 2 to 18 years old representing over 50 nationalities. ISHCMC creates a Culture of Achievement where students are energized, engaged and empowered to become active participants in their communities.
In 2018, ISHCMC's graduating class celebrated a second consecutive perfect score of 45-points with a cohort pass rate of 98% in the IB Diploma Programme. ISHCMC is inclusive and all students can pursue the full IB Diploma. This is supported by ISHCMC now offering more DP subject options than any other school in Ho Chi Minh City.
The Primary campus boasts physical facilities such as an indoor gymnasium, a large outdoor pitch and numerous covered and uncovered hard surface play and sports areas. There are also facilities to help our students to become well-rounded, balanced individuals with a passion for learning in all its diverse forms such as information technology lab, a makerspace and an exclusive area for art.
In 2018, ISHCMC opened a new state-of-the-art Secondary campus for students 11 to 18 years old. The facility features Vietnam's first Innovation Centre for collaborative learning between students and the corporate sector, a 350-seat professional theater, Multi-purpose room courts, rooftop sports field, and a 25 meter - 8 lanes competitive swimming pool.
