Below are comments from past and present parents on their impression of BIS HCMC and the admissions process:
"Julius has had a great time at BIS! The staff are all absolutely lovely and the teachers put so much effort in with the kids. It is amazing to hear the extraordinary thoughts the kids can create with your help. Thank you for all the support you gave us and for providing the best opportunities for Julius. I’d also like to say how proud I am of how independent he became at BIS. The special days such as International Day and parties for the children are unforgettable memories that we will take with us to Singapore! We hope that our next adventure will be as good as it was at BIS!" - Family relocating to Singapore
"I wanted to take a moment to express a huge thank you to all of you at BIS who so warmly welcomed my family to your Campus earlier in October. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and so many of the staff and certainly made us all feel more at ease about relocating to HCMC; not only in respect of the quality of education and facilities BIS provide, but the additional advice you offered around medical and community support. It was hugely appreciated and very comforting."
"I can see that above all my daughter is extremely happy at school and as a result she is developing into a mature and responsible global citizen, young though she may be. She has had very competent and likeable teachers and has formed a close bond with all of them. The school is well managed and very well directed by the management and teaching staff assisted ably by helpers and administration. I could not recommend a school more highly."
"Over the last few years in HCMC, my children have fallen in love with this school. They say to me, BIS is my school. Both of them are being transformed into really responsible individuals not only academically but in other areas as well. BIS is so diverse that we know we belong here. This is a school where quality of education and safety is a top priority."
"I would recommend BIS HCMC to anyone moving to Ho Chi Minh... because among the schools that I have visited prior to deciding which school to send my children to, BIS had the most warm, welcoming and organised atmosphere. The teachers had bright smiles on their faces as they were talking to the class, and they were patient to wait for the non-English speaking parents to finish talking. Also, the Admissions team were great in communicating and quickly responded back with even the smallest detail, and I was able to prepare for the school abroad with confidence."
"High quality education with genuine opportunities for admittance into excellent universities. Very good leadership at the Secondary school, with very responsive and open-minded attitudes from top management."
"When your children come home excited about their day at school, you know you have made the right choice. BIS is an amazing place for children where they can learn in the best conditions, where they can experience a wide range of activities from arts to sports, where they get the support they need and where they are involved in the Community life as well. Our children have only one fear: the day we'll have to move out Vietnam and leaving BIS ;)"
"So far we have been impressed with the school and it’s attitude and dedication towards the education of our boys."
"I know that my children are doing so well today, thanks to BIS. For this reason I would like to thank you and BIS for making my children as they are today. The impressive results that they have had here in the school in Buenos Aires is thanks to the wonderful job that everybody in BIS did."
"I believe that our children were lucky to be part of the BIS family!"
"Our whole experience with BIS from the very beginning has been wonderful and it is nice to have the chance to pass along our thoughts."
"We find BIS gives opportunities to every child to express him/herself and we think this is very important for our child's development."
"My daughter adapted very well to the school environment which made my wife and I extremely happy. Overall BIS is a great school, very suitable for my daughter and my family is extremely happy and grateful. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!"
"BIS creates a very good environment for students to develop both their academics and character. Students are well disciplines and have good behaviour. Teachers are very knowledgeable, kind and supportive. Administrative staff are helpful whenever parents need support."
