One community, two campuses

ISHCMC communities welcome the introduction of a state-of-the-art ISHCMC Secondary Campus located less than 5 km away from the ISHCMC Primary Campus. Both ISHCMC campuses are located in District 2. This campus offers great opportunities for student learning through technologically advanced classrooms, collaborative learning spaces and senior student study areas. Unique facilities such as Vietnam's first Innovation Center aim to prepare our students for the realities of the commercial world in the 21st century. Full-scale musical productions are hosted in our brand new 350-seat theater with professional lighting and sound equipment, extending opportunities into the technical aspects of theatre productions. In line with our goal of producing well-balanced and healthy students, our new facility provides ISHCMC Secondary-aged students with a wide range of facilities to support their wellbeing. Sports facilities include multi-purpose courts, a rooftop sports field and 25m - eight-lane competitive swimming pool with seating.

The new facility allows students of both primary and secondary age to flourish on campuses that suit their respective educational needs. The existing campus continues to undergo extensive renovations to meet the needs of younger learners by offering new learning suites including a Fab Lab, Food Tech, film studio and studio concept. Both campuses offer clean air through advanced purification systems. Although two campuses, ISHCMC remains one community.
