Why does the school cover up acts of school violence? Why does no one stand up for the victim? so disappointed with a school with an INTERNATIONAL reputation!

There is nothing likely positive-caring-engaged. Our children were not safe at school while the teachers ignore and hide the violence at school. They don't take any responsibility which they should and they have to.

International School Ho Chi Minh City(ISHCMC) is a school that doesn't fulfill their responsibilities towards their students. Especially in the recent school violence incident. They do not deserve to be labeled as having an American education.

A bad experience at an international standard school, which promotes and covers school violence, with a price tag of nearly 800,000,000 VND (equivalent to 35500 USD), committed to ensuring the quality of teaching and learning, as well as ensuring safety and health. of students, but do the exact opposite of the commitments

The school did not deal with the student's school violence, did not welcome family members when the incident happened and the student had to go to the school, then there were new acts of expulsion. Not to mention the responsibility of the school, the attitude and treatment of parents is very vague, even if it is about responsibility, it can be considered that the school has almost denied it.

The School is popular but with money and power, the teachers decided to silence a incident about bullying even the parents of the kid that got bullied spend lots of money in hope to send their own kid to school that they never thought any of the bullying happened. I don’t know in the future if any of this ever happened again, but please scrutiny your teachers.

My experience at the school was great. The teachers were kind and always available to help. The school also focuses a lot on self-reflection, building up important skills that are essential for success. The syllabus being studied was always interesting and the classes focus on using research done by the students themselves instead of usual text-book answers. The summative assessments were always stress-free and gave sufficient time to be completed. As a former student I feel sad to have left and definitely enjoyed ISHCMC much more than my current school.

It was the first international school & longest history of accreditation. All 3 programmers of the IB and 20 years of successfully graduating IBDP students to high profile universities worldwide.

I like how easy it is to submit an inquiry through the ISHCMC website. The admissions staff at ISHCMC have been very helpful during the inquiry process as well.
