Saigon South International School, a not for profit school, is the only American curriculum school in Ho Chi Minh City, southern Vietnam. Our student population, ages 4 to grade 12, is culturally diverse. SSIS is located in the new city center, Saigon South, which is the greenest and newest part of the city and yet we are only 15 minutes away from the current city center. This natural airy environment in a safe, master planned community is easy to reach via the new highway and bridges.

Location and Facilities:


Photo of International school in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Our facility is brand new and boasts large size classrooms with smaller size classes. We believe that smaller classes contribute to more individual attention and flexibility, allowing students to reach their full potential and to strive for excellence in all aspects of their lives. With our 10 to 1 student teacher ratio at the elementary level we are able to deliver quality education with close student teacher relationships and lots of hands on experiential learning.

The state of the art facilities include art rooms, media center, 3 computer labs, cafeteria, music center, library and science labs, which are technologically equipped. We also have on campus a dance studio and Olympic size swimming pool as well as a double size gymnasium.

Outside there are grass playgrounds including covered areas of play as well as sports fields. All of our classrooms have computers. If you would like to know what our parents say about SSIS, it is that SSIS is 'An Inviting Place to Learn'.

The SSIS Library is located in Building A and provides to all students and teachers books for academic and recreational reading as well as periodicals, audiovisual items, access to the Internet and several electronic databases.
