How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

The facilities are the best in HCMC. The fields are large and the elementary playground is amazing. There is a swimming pool, 3 libraries, fitness room, two gyms (one is double gym) and three well maintained buildings. My kids can participate in sports, MUN, GIN and other clubs after school.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

The MS counselor met with us within the first 2 weeks of being at school to check in with the transition. The teachers were quick to answer emails. Many teachers have their own children at the school.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

The PTA has book clubs, family day, cooking classes and has even started English language classes for parents. They organize a charity bazaar every year.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Check out the school. It is definitely worth a visit. Phu My Hung is a great part of town where my family feels very safe and my older children can ride their bikes to school.
