As the first International School and the first International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Ho Chi Minh City, ISHCMC is proud of its rich history. With the new ISHCMC Secondary Campus opening in Semester 1 of the 2017/18 academic year, the school is set to break further academic records and boundaries in 21st century education. The cutting-edge design brings to Ho Chi Minh City a modern learning environment, which allows for collaboration, innovation and creativity.
International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) celebrates the longest history in Ho Chi Minh City of scoring above world averages in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) offered to students in Grade 6 to 10 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) offered to students Grade 10 to 12. The Graduation Class of 2016 achieved the highest scores at ISHCMC and set new records for the School.
The IB DP is the premier global university entrance qualification and is favored among universities and employers given the level of critical thinking and 21st century skill sets it equips students with. The IB MYP is seen as the best preparation for excelling in the IB DP.
“The IB DP is a curriculum not an examination, at ISHCMC in all 3 of our programs we look at life-long learning. We ensure our curriculum framework is broad and balanced to equip students for the skill sets that will be required after school and after university. The IB MYP provides authentic contexts and inquiry learning at the forefront of engaging students in learning how to learn and equips students to excel in the IB DP,” says Adrian Watts, Head of School at ISHCMC.
