ISSP sharing useful tips to choose international school of Ho Chi Minh City for children

Parents should carefully learn about educational programs, location, extracurricular activities and school tours, and talk with teachers before choosing an international school of Ho Chi Minh City for their children.

According to Mr. Lester Stephens – New Zealand education researcher, Principal of International School Saigon Pearl (ISSP), the most influential factor to the quality of students’ learning is the school’s leadership and the teachers.

“After working at for-profit, not-for-profit, religious, public, private, private, British, Singapore, Australian or IB programs, I realized when making decisions about things prioritizing themselves and their children, parents never know what their 5-year-old will do in the next 20 years. However, parents can prepare a better future for their children by helping them to develop equally in essential aspects such as academic, physical and social-emotional quotient.

With 23 years of analyzing more than 120 million students from 73 international schools, Lester Stephens believes that class size, type of school or homework, etc. don’t make a difference. Sustainable pedagogy, dedicated teachers, closeness of the school community, school location, extra-curricular activities are the main factors that stimulate a love of learning and going to school in children.

A good school can be described as when teachers get to know each student’s learning style, strengths, weaknesses, interests, families, and even interests outside of school. This information will help the school personalize the curriculum for each child better in teaching as well as future orientation from preschool and elementary levels. At ISSP, the credible and high-quality international school of Ho Chi Minh City, teachers will analyze each child in many ways for a comprehensive assessment and appropriate support in the learning process.

In addition, for helping children to learn effectively, the training program must have focus, good methods and a vibrant environment. This includes extra-curricular activities, multiculturalism, sustainable and intensive pedagogical philosophy. When designing programs to meet the needs of children, schools need to have effective assessment systems such as daily classroom tests and international exams.

Pedagogy at ISSP is mainly based on inquiry based learning (or called inquiry-based method) and children-centered teaching method helps children develop comprehensive knowledge and skills.

Students will learn to evaluate problems in a general way, be autonomous in deciding what to study, learn how to be effective with specific goals set by themselves. The teacher plays the role of facilitator and inspiration. Each student will learn according to his or her own method and approach.

In 2018, with good academic results, more than 85% of students at international school ISSP achieved scores in language development and mathematics higher than the world average in the international MAP Test (USA). This proves the school’s sustainability and right approach in academic education for children.

Before choosing an international school, in addition to visiting the website to learn about the curriculum and activities available, parents should get advice from people whose children attend the international school. However, it is still most important to visit the school with children and observe an actual classroom. Thereby, parents can assess whether the school’s location is convenient for daily transportation or is located in a secure area.

Parents should find out if the school has an openness policy that allows regular communication with administrators about their worries and concerns. A good international school often puts the relationship between parents, students and international pedagogy first. At ISSP, in addition to creating opportunities for children and parents to learn more everywhere, parents are also encouraged to learn more about the school’s activities through the objective audit reports of the CIS (National School Council). economy) and NEASC (New England Area School Council, USA).
