About Canadian International School Vietnam (CIS)

Canadian International School (CIS) Ho Chi Minh City is the first and only school in Vietnam to offer the Ontario Curriculum from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Established and developed since 2009, CIS started its educational journey in cooperation with the well-known and respected District of Niagara School Board, DSBN from 2009 until 2014, and with the Toronto District School Board.

All the programs offered through the Canadian International School System - Vietnam are built on the promise that the educational goal is to nurture the whole child - to feed the body and the soul, the head and the heart respecting the values of both intellect and heritage. Our students are growing up in a developing country where the only constant is change itself. The challenges and opportunities of a global economy and its multi-lingual platform require different kinds of literacies, a myriad of communication skills, a capacity to critically evaluate the onslaught of information, a recognition of the universal human condition, a willingness to continually build empathy and the tenacity to persevere.

We provide students a solid grounding, roots to withstand the challenges to come, roots that inform their identity, roots that like the relationships students form with staff and with each other, are intertwined. This is the grounding that affords the confidence and independence for flight - wings for flight to post-secondary horizons.

Terrible school. Incompetent management with young teachers throughout the system. Don't do the IB program here. Very badly run. Incompetent coordinator.
