Testimonials

01/

We chose Montessori because our children love their school. Whenever they stay on the long or short holiday, they’re always eager to come back school. Our children have gained much knowledge with happiness and safety. Our children have been going to Montessori since 2013 and we still choose Montessori for them now. Besides our choosing, I hear from other parents who said that their children have significant development after 1-2 weeks after going to the Montessori School. They properly follow the Montessori method. It’s great. In our opinion, the Montessori International School is one of the best schools for young children in Ho Chi Minh City.

Hien (Vietnam)

My children have attended the Montessori International School since the age of 3 (this is my eldest son’s 7th school year). I am constantly impressed by the quality of work they do everyday: academics are rigorous but taught in a way that makes them enjoy it. The school offers a very pure Montessori curriculum, which was very important to us. My children are very happy and love their school. I have watched them blossom, to grow strong and become confident. There is nothing more delightful than having children who love to learn and come home to talk about it. And this is definitely thanks to their teachers who are fantastic. Both my sons have wonderful relationships with them.

Our two sons, aged 5 and 8, have thrived at the Montessori International School, where they have the opportunity to concentrate deeply on the works they choose. The multi-age classrooms, in particular, are a unique feature, which encourages the younger students to learn new works like their older friends, and for the older students to help out the younger friends.

Gregory and Pamela (USA)

For us it is extremely important for our son to grow up in a diverse culture, making friends with all kind of nationalities & ages. As soon as you enter Montessori International School each day you are greeted by such friendly, engaging and nurturing educators & staff. They take the time to know each child and their families so that everyone is comfortable; the children and the parents! Each day we hear stories from our son about the fun, adventures and learning that he has experienced; reinforced by the photos and stories that the educators share with us.

Children's Day / "Water" Exhibition in Thao Dien

    Inspired by the PYP exhibition, we are adding an activity to our Montessori culture curriculum area which aims to encourage in-depth research and learning, discovery, team work and the end result presentation: an exhibition of the project!

    The topic we have chosen for the project is WATER!  Each class will divide into groups and work on a few subjects related to water. Children will be guided to research, find knowledge and information, and work on building their final “product” to present at the exhibition.

    On 31 May, all parents are invited to come to Thao Dien Campus in the afternoon to view the exhibit of classes from 2 campuses. We will be showcasing exhibits created by our children from 2 years old to 10 years old! While the students were given the overarching theme of ‘Water’ all further ideas for their presentations came from the children themselves. We hope you will be delighted to view their works of art and science through their academic presentations!

          Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held after school on Wednesday 27th March 2019. Time slots will be sent to you by mid-march. Time slots will be given on a first-come first-served basis. Please choose your preferred three options.

          Regarding the actual conferences, it may help if you prepare a list of questions about your child before hand, thereby getting straight to an issue that you wish to talk about. Please also note that though the slots are 15 minutes long, each conference might last no longer than 14 minutes to allow departure and arrival of parents.

          If the conference looks like it may go over time, in consideration of others, you may arrange another time to continue your discussion with the teacher. We highly advocate more communication between family and school, and we strongly encourage parents to ask the teacher for a further meeting in a later day if this conference does not cover all issues you wish to discuss.

          Please do not take offence if the teacher calls a stop to the conference – it is simply due to following the booked schedule in order to accommodate everyone that have arrived on time. If you arrive after your slot, you might need to wait until the next available free slot e.g. if your slot is 5.15 pm, but you arrive at 5.30 pm, you might not take your turn if another person has booked the 5.30 pm.
          Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
