Saigon South International School (SSIS) is one of the oldest international schools in Vietnam and has earned a reputation for its robust college preparatory program, excellence in teaching and innovation, and the infusion of Core Values into the program and the student experience.

These Core Values - the pursuit of Academic Excellence, a grounding in a Sense of Self, a commitment to Dedicated Service, striving for a Balance in Life, and a heartfelt Respect for All unite us as a school and are at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to the intellectual and personal development of each student, and we believe that our values will help prepare them for a purpose-driven life as a member of an increasingly globalized and changing society. We believe that a rigorous and challenging academic program is an essential preparation for the top colleges and universities around the world. At the same time, we are just as aware that international communities can be transient and we recognize the importance of offering a program which allows for the successful transition for our students to other elementary and secondary schools around the globe.

SSIS is not-for-profit. That says so much. All decisions are based on what is best for students not how much will this cost.

Wonderful learning environment. Beautiful campus. Teachers are very caring. Supportive administration. A little more diversity in student population would be nice.

It's fantastic learning at SSIS. It's so fantastic because Korean food gets served on every Tuesday, and com suon gets served on every Thursdays for 4th grade+. It includes really good services and kind teachers.

Fulton is a great school. All the staff and teachers are really nice. It has fun electives. But PE can be really tiring when the weather is boiling hot.

Former student here from 3rd to 10th grade so let's start with the negative since that is what every one always ask for what is the flawed about a place then would ask what is good about this place. So for the negative things, this place has one of the highest tuition per year in Vietnam. Also Depending on where you lived, they charged extra to pick up your kids and also deliver them back home BUT if the kid ask to signed up for extra curriculum, like swimming, technology class, soccer team, they wont deliver your kid back home so you will probably have to pick them up when it is 1700 when it is rush hour. Prior students that want to come back here can't do it as freely like it used to be. They have a gate system that is pretty tightknit with guards on post almost 24/7 but u can get escorted in the school if you know some one there. Work is also alot depending what classes you take and that is about all I have to say about the negative. Now for the positive, this school is 300% better than most American curriculum in the states. Even though your subjected to about 8 course per school year, there are alot of subject to choose from. All of the subjects that are taught here is very in depth. Even in elementary school, this school is able to slowly preparing you for higher education like university, college, and other way to become successful. There is also a cafeteria that will serve you with a price of $2-$10 depending on what you want to eat. Over all not too bad of a school 7/10.
