"Ho Chi Minh City is home to a number of excellent international and bilingual schools. The British International School (BIS) is one of the most highly regarded international schools in the city. It offers a British-style curriculum and is accredited by the Council of International Schools. The school has a strong focus on academic excellence and provides a wide range of extracurricular activities. The International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) is another top international school in the city. It offers an American-style curriculum and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The school has a strong emphasis on developing global citizens and provides a wide range of extracurricular activities. The French International School (FIS) is a bilingual school that offers a French-style curriculum. It is accredited by the French Ministry of Education and has a strong focus on developing bilingual students. The school also offers a wide range of extracurricular activities," remarked one expat living in Ho Chi Minh City with children attending .
"I like SSIS because it is the only not-for-profit school in Saigon. That is really important for me. I'm not sending my child to school to make some business owner or shareholder rich. I like that the money I put in goes straight back into the school. I also like that SSIS has a limit to each nationality, so it does not become too unbalanced in its student population. I've seen a lot of international schools that are not really international. They have 70% or 80% or 90% of students all from one country. I think it's really valuable for my child to have an experience in a school with children from many countries. I think if you live in Saigon, or are moving to Saigon, you should check out this school. See how it feels when you tour the campus. Talk to the teachers. Look at the resources and how green and open the campus is. There are some good schools in Saigon, and SSIS is definitely one of them," said one expat in Ho Chi Minh City with children at Saigon South International School.
