Saigon South International School (SSIS) was founded in 1997 to accommodate the demand from both local residents and expatriate families for an American-style education. Located in the quickly growing District 7 of South Saigon, SSIS is just two and a half miles south of the city center, District 1, of Ho Chi Minh City. SSIS is governed by a three-member board and operates as a non-profit entity.
Today, SSIS enrolls over 1000 students from more than thirty-nine countries. Our professionally certified and experienced teachers are career educators and most come from North America, Australia and the United Kingdom. As specialists in their subject area, almost all hold advanced 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 programs, as well as our after school activities program at the elementary level and the athletic program in grades 4-12. The school offers an American-based curriculum, augmented in the high school by the rigorous Advanced Placement (AP) program and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB-DP).
