British Vietnamese International School, Ho Chi Minh City
About British Vietnamese International School, Ho Chi Minh City
BVIS, Ho Chi Minh City is a state of the art, purpose-built school which opened in August 2011 in the Binh Chanh District of HCMC.
The campus features exceptional facilities including a large library, a theatre, an auditorium, an indoor 25m swimming pool, a sports hall and grass playing fields. The school also has available specialist suites for Science, Music, ICT, Art and Drama.
The school is the first of its kind in HCMC to offer a dual-language, integrated curriculum modeled on the National Curriculum for England whilst committing to nurturing and celebrating Vietnamese language and culture. Students reach high literacy levels in both English and Vietnamese by the end of primary school before gradually increasing exposure to English. Secondary school courses lead to Cambridge University IGCSE and A Level examinations.
BVIS is staffed with dedicated, skilled and committed teachers, ensuring the education on offer is amongst the very best available anywhere in the world. All of the teaching staff are well qualified with relevant curriculum experience.
The mission of BVIS is to ensure that all students become responsible global citizens with a world vision, from a Vietnamese perspective.
