Some notes that parents should be aware of when sending their children to International schools

When sending their children to International schools HCMC, some parents tend to  focus on tuition fees and “perfect” curriculum program. This is regardless of whether the school is  financially viable for their children to study at. Here are some notes that parents should know when thinking about sending their children to international schools.

Aspects such as the quality of the extracurricular program and modern facilities are one of the first considerations when parents choose an Internationals schools HCMC. However, choosing a suitable environment for the children and the economic condition of the family is unnoticed. This is perhaps  why some parents have to change schools for their children after only a few weeks.

Focusing on  an international curriculum

Parents who send their children to International schools HCMC choose an international curriculum as they expect their child to develop skills, languages and study in an advanced learning environment. However, this option is  suitable for children whose parents orient their children to study, work or settle abroad at a later stage

Some parents believe that studying at an International school involves learning an International curriculum

As a result  it is sometimes difficult for children to keep up or study a curriculum based entirely in English. One side effect of studying a wholly international  curriculum is Vietnamese is not understanding the mother language and cultural values of Vietnam if parents do not spend time with their children after school. By combining an international program with that of the the  Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam, students are more able to successfully focus on developing an international perspective by focusing more on globalisation whilst still keeping Vietnamese cultural values in mind.

Not ensure if long-term financially secured for child learning at International schools HCMC

Tuition fees at international schools are fairly expensive. In addition, parents must also have enough money to pay for other school fees, such as outdoor activities and practical activities.

Parents should consider that both parents and children are confident with the learning environment. Many families want their child to study at international schools but after a few years, money will become the biggest burden and may affect the development of children.

Is this International schools HCMC environment right for your child?

Although International schools HCMC are committed to caring and developing competencies of each student, parents need to consider a learning environment based on their child’s abilities, interest and personality as well. Many families have had to change schools for their children because they are not confident, satisfied and they have to accept values that are not suitable for them.

Parents need to carefully consider and build their own clear criteria or action plan and help their children identify the limitation of learning in international schools and offset difficulties they meet at international schools.
