Description

Saigon South International School was founded in 1997 by the Phu My Hung Corporation to accommodate an increasing need for American education for both local residents and expatriate families. Located in the quickly growing Saigon South Urban Development Project, SSIS is just two and a half miles south of the current city center – District One in Ho Chi Minh City. SSIS is owned by the Phu My Hung Corporation but operates as a non-profit entity within the company. A three-member School Board governs the school in consultation with the Phu My Hung Corporation. Today, SSIS enrolls over 850 students from over thirty-three countries. Our professionally certified and experienced teachers are career educators. Most come from North America, Australia and the United Kingdom. As specialists in their subject area, almost all hold advanced educational degrees. Our student teacher ratio is 10 to 1 and all early childhood and elementary classes have a full time teaching assistant. SSIS facilities are outstanding and appropriately support our curricular and co-curricular program, as well as our after school activities program on the elementary level and the athletic program in grades 4-12. The school offers an American standards-based curriculum, augmented by the rigorous Advanced Placement Program (AP) and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBD) in the high school.
