It’s not by chance that many parents aspire for their children to attend international schools. The process of selecting the most suitable international school for their child, starting from the elementary level, demands a considerable amount of time and effort from parents. Choosing the right international Primary school not only helps provide a solid academic foundation and strong skills for the child but also opens up a broad future with an internationally valid Baccalaureate degree, facilitating easy entry into universities worldwide. 

Is studying at an international school and the IB programme good?

Parents can consider some of the advantages below to understand why nowadays parents tend to choose international schools in Vietnam for their children’s education and development: 

– International qualifications: The curriculum at international schools often comes from countries with modern education systems and is accredited by reputable educational organizations, so parents can rest assured about the quality of teaching. The qualifications students receive will be recognized worldwide – such as the IB diploma – facilitating easy transitions between educational levels in different countries and making studying abroad more convenient. 

– Modern and open learning environment: This environment allows students to freely express themselves, pursue their passions, and develop their talents. This helps international school students become dynamic, confident, independent, and unafraid of challenges, especially those following the IB programme. 

– Practical and flexible teaching methods: These methods focus on holistic development, placing students at the center of learning and experience. Students not only delve into knowledge but also develop important 21st-century skills. Therefore, international school students often have sharp thinking, know how to argue, and demonstrate their own value. 

– A strong foundation in foreign languages is the basis for students to excel in learning and working in multicultural environments, increasing their chances of admission to prestigious universities worldwide, especially in the United States and Europe – where the IB diploma is highly regarded. 

In addition to the core curriculum, students also enjoy many practical activities to promote both physical and mental development, such as after-school clubs, extracurricular activities, community service projects, etc. Students learn in a relaxed, positive atmosphere, enhancing their ability to absorb, retain, and create knowledge. That is also the reason why the IB Diploma programme focuses on students’ learning experiences.

– Modern and well-equipped facilities are provided to meet the needs of students’ learning, training, exploration, and experiences. IB schools are required to provide adequate facilities for students’ IB programme learning experiences.

Considerations when sending your child to an international school

– Family orientation: Parents need to clearly define their educational goals for their child and the long-term learning path to see the direction from the outset. If the goal does not align with the school’s curriculum, the outcomes may not meet parents’ expectations. 

– Child’s aspirations: Not every child is ready for a new educational program, or their abilities may not be sufficient to meet its demands. Taking the time to observe, listen, and assess to choose the most suitable school for the child will help them maximize their potential.

– Financial capability of the family: Tuition fees at international schools vary depending on factors such as the curriculum (e.g., IB, Cambridge, AP), facilities, etc. Therefore, finances are always an important factor for parents to consider to ensure a stable and long-term learning process for their children. Once parents have decided on an international school for their child, they should have a clear and long-term financial plan to ensure the quality of their child’s education is maintained.
