Welcome from the Admissions Director

“Our aim is to have a student body that exemplifies our core values and strives for excellence. We are educating the global leaders of tomorrow.”

- Mrs. Katie Rigney- Zimmermann
Director of Admissions & Marketing

Thank you for your interest in Saigon South International School. We are truly an international school with over 1000 students from ages 3 - 18 representing more than 35 nationalities and a professional staff of over 110 from 12 countries.

Our curriculum is based upon an American program of studies. Class averages of 20 students ensure that all students receive the personalized instruction necessary for success. Our aim is to have a student body that exemplifies our core values and strives for excellence. We are educating the global leaders of tomorrow.

The school seeks to attract and admit students who can benefit from the educational program we offer and who are in agreement with our core values of Academic Excellence, Balance in Life, Sense of Self, Dedicated Service and Respect for All.

Students are considered for admission based on available space, their academic potential, and their parents’ commitment toward their child’s education in a school where the language of instruction is English. As an international school committed to diversity, the school’s admissions policy seeks to ensure a balance of cultures and nationalities in each class.

Because many of our classes reach capacity early in the school year, it is important to submit applications as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you and am happy to answer any questions you may have. When you arrive in the HCMC, please contact our Admissions Office if you have questions or would like a tour of the school. Our school video on this website does a good job in presenting an overview of SSIS, but nothing is better than seeing the school for yourself.

Once again, thank you for your interest in SSIS, and I look forward to meeting you and your family.

Sincerely,

Katie Rigney-Zimmermann
Director of Admissions
