BIS HCMC was the first school in Vietnam to be British government inspected and approved. The most recent British Schools Overseas Inspection Report states:

The personal development of the students is outstanding. Leadership and management are highly effective. The students, parents and staff are strongly supportive of the school, especially the progress it is making to become even better." April 2019

CIS Accreditation - BIS HCMC


In 2010 BIS HCMC was officially awarded full accreditation status through the prestigious Council of International Schools (CIS).

This means that the school has been externally and independently accredited by a prestigious international organisation, confirming our status as a leading school in the region. The accreditation is retained for 10 years provided certain intermediate targets are met. The CIS report states that:

“The British International School is already a good school, but it desires to become an exceptional one. The rate of growth and development of the School from its humble beginnings in 1997 is remarkable. It has already achieved a great deal. Throughout the School there is a justifiable pride in what has been achieved and the quality of education and community life that the School provides."
