International Baccalaureate (IB) Curriculum in Vietnam
At International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) in Vietnam, we proudly offer the International Baccalaureate curriculum which is one of the most respected and sought after curriculums in the world.
ISHCMC is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Ho Chi Minh City that provides an IB curriculum (PYP, MYP, and IBDP) to all of their students, from ages 2 to 18 years. The IB curriculum was specifically created to meet the needs of an internationally mobile student body, and at its core is the requirement to take into consideration the needs of the whole child and to use differentiated teaching techniques to support each child to meet their maximum potential. It is a well-rounded course of studies that offers a very challenging academic inquiry-based curriculum and also considers the social and emotional development of students.
Quality IB Schools are collaborative organizations and programmes are developed and enhanced through the involvement of experienced and committed teachers. We aim to find and attract the best that the world has to offer in regard to high calibre teachers who are themselves educational adventurers who much like our parent body are seeking to learn more about the world from a different perspective.
The focus of ISHCMC's Early Education Program is to introduce the children to inquiry-based learning and to instil a love of learning that will serve them throughout their lifetime. We work to develop language, social and motor skills and encourage our youngest students to try new things and explore their world with the guidance of our teachers. ISHCMC EE2/3 and EE4 students are actively engaged in learning through play, songs and storytelling. They acquire important social skills with group activities and collaborative play and there are opportunities throughout the year to build their confidence and self-esteem with class performances.
The IBMYP programme provides a thorough study of various academic disciplines while accentuating their interrelatedness, which teaches students to build connections, transfer knowledge, and develop abstract thought. The interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum is developed through five areas of interaction: approaches to learning, community and service, health and social education, environments, and human ingenuity (homo faber). These areas help students and teachers make connections between disciplines, and apply learning to their global experiences.
