For many years, ISSP, the high-quality and prestigious international school in Ho Chi Minh City, has always been highly appreciated by parents because of its extremely modern and advanced facilities, serving well for both teaching and learning purposes.

The International School Saigon Pearl (ISSP) has a rather expensive tuition fee. According to the school’s official website, the tuition fee ranges from 212 million VND to 477 million VND/year depending on the level of study and the form of payment 1 time, 2 times or 4 times.

It is known that parents also have to pay a registration fee for new students of 25 million VND. For parents with normal backgrounds, the tuition fees at ISSP are really too expensive and make them “sweat”. However, looking at the facilities and the teaching program of this school, we can see what it is like to be “pay an arm and a leg for” but “you get what you pay for”!
