Dear SSIS Parents,
As we celebrate this 25th year as a top-tier educational institution, we look upon the mission that we have served over the past two decades with great pride. Nurturing your children to lead purposeful lives as global citizens has been, and continues to be, a true privilege.
Our students do exceedingly well at availing themselves of the many opportunities our unique program provides and are accepted at the finest universities in the world, where they continue to excel intellectually and personally.
To ensure that we attract and retain the most experienced educators for your children and provide the best teaching and learning environments, we continue to develop our program and our facilities each year.
In December 2023, the construction of our new Middle School and HS STEAM/Design center will be completed, adding more than 18,700 sqm of innovative learning spaces for our students. Your children’s tuition will go directly to funding these projects, in addition to funding the operations of the school. These state-of-the-art facilities and the new positions we are adding to each division will allow us to expand our programs across all of the STEAM disciplines: science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics for the benefit of all students.
As our school continues to grow and expand in both size and program, three brand new positions have been created to further support your children next year; an Education Technology Director, an additional Middle School Counselor, and one more High School Visual Arts teacher. Furthermore, we are reintroducing a dedicated Athletics Director and an ES STEAM Coach to support our growing programs.

As the only not-for-profit school in Ho Chi Minh City, SSIS fees compare most favorably to other international schools in the city while we continue to expand our wonderful facilities and programs for the benefit of your children.
Please note that in order to ensure that your child’s spot is secured for the 2023-2024 school year, please re-enroll them by March 23, 2023, following the steps at this link.
With this, we wish to extend our gratitude to all of our families for the support that you continue to show the school, for your belief in our mission, and for entrusting us with the education of your child.
All good wishes,
Dr. Catriona Moran
Head of School
