Hello,

My husband might be relocated to HCMC from USA, we have two children, middle and high school, so I was researching the International Schools in HCMC and found at least four American Schools - TAS, ISHCMC, ISHCMC American Academy and South Saigon International School. I'd really appreciate some input on these schools. I'm specially confused with the two ISHCMC schools... Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

International schooling in HCMC can seem rather complicated at first – there's a fantastic selection of schools to choose from, but at the same time, the sheer number can be overwhelming.

Simply put, ISHCMC American Academy is part of the Cognita education group along with International School Saigon Pearl (ISSP) and the International School of Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC). Profiles of all three schools (and a number of other schools) can be viewed on the Expat Arrivals International Schools in Ho Chi Minh City page.

For more advice and a useful overview of schooling international children in the city, have a look at our Ho Chi Minh City Schools Guide, which can be downloaded for free.

Hope this helps. Best of luck with the move!
