What makes the Montessori International School of Vietnam unique?

MIS aims at helping each child to development wholly as a unique individual. At MIS children learn by doing. They work at their own pace, establish a love of learning, grow in the ability to think outside the box, and develop their empathy and emotional intelligence. These important attributes and skills will enable them in the future to embrace challenges and be proactive. By learning at MIS, children will be given the opportunity to grow and develop into people who desire to improve, influence, and ignite happiness in not only their own lives but also the lives of those around them.

What is the teaching approach of the Montessori International School of Vietnam?

Every child learns differently and MIS views the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. Dr. Maria Montessori’s celebrated method values the development of the whole child. It allows children to progress by absorbing information from holistic curriculum, under the direction of trained teachers. The adult’s guidance and activities of MIS promote the development of social skills, emotional growth and physical coordination as well as cognitive preparation for future intellectual academic endeavors.

The Montessori approach towards education unites school-learning with society-encouraging initiatives. It helps the child develop various skills and characteristics such as independent learning, self-discipline and responsible social behavior.

What does the Montessori International School of Vietnam have to offer?

The diversity of MIS, the infrastructures and services MIS provides distinguishes it from other schools. MIS is proud to offer unprecedented services including but not limited to transportation, flexible and customized schedules, after school care and activities, pre-enrollment programs with presence of parents or nannies inside the class, and more. The facilities include air purifiers inside each classroom, top quality learning materials and spacious, child appropriately designed classrooms.

Not only are the students internationally diverse, the teaching staff is as well. The teachers are qualified and experienced across the whole school while those caring for infants have additional and extensive experience and knowledge in child care and parenting approaches.

In the Infant Toddler Class at the An Phu Campus, MIS not only practices the Montessori Method but also follows the worldwide popular approach of Resources for Infant Educators (RIE). RIE inspires MIS to hold a firm belief in respect of the child and total trust in their decision.

On an academic level, children are encouraged to explore their natural desire to learn in a comfortable environment that is emotionally nurturing, cognitively challenging, and physically safe. In MIS’s environment students can feel confident to engage and make their own discoveries through activities that are age appropriate, fun, and fulfill each child cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically.
