Established in 1993, International School Ho Chi Minh City is the oldest international school in Ho Chi Minh City and the first IB World School in Vietnam. ISHCMC provides the International Baccalaureate with a culturally diverse perspective to students aged 2-18 years.

ISHCMC is a vibrant co-educational school of approximately 1,400 students representing over 55 nationalities and provides a unique learning experience from Early Years through to Grade 12.

As one of the few IB Continuum schools in Vietnam, ISHCMC offers the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP). Through the IB curriculum, students construct understandings and knowledge of their world through personalized learning experiences and inquiries that develop a deep understanding of important concepts in global contexts.

ISHCMC has a rich history or academic success with students' examination results consistently surpassing the global average. A 100% pass rate in the IB Diploma programme, sees students typically receiving their first or second choice university, which are among the best in the world.

At ISHCMC, teaching and learning is guided by our Principles of Learning. They inform planning and, in the very best teaching, 'interleave' together to give the impression of classroom learning, which is smooth, consistent, immersive, and sustained. Our teachers are well qualified, experienced, care about their students and build positive relationships to ensure students reach their full potential. Many of our educators have advanced degrees and all of our educators are committed to ongoing professional growth and development.

Wellbeing is at the core of ISHCMC's community and is integral to our overall purpose of ‘Providing an inspiring world of education: building self-belief and empowering individuals to succeed'. The positive mental health of our students is an utmost priority within the ISHCMC family community, and our mindfulness program helps us to sustain a supportive learning environment.

Both our campuses offer a great opportunity for student learning through technologically advanced classrooms, collaborative learning spaces and student study areas. Unique facilities help to prepare our students for the realities of the 21st-century commercial world. These include an Information & Media Center, a professional theater, recording studios, design suites, music practice rooms, NBA-size basketball court, rooftop sports field, 25m 8-lane pool, food tech and science labs.
