At HAIS, the community is at the centre of all that we do. An essential part of that community is, of course, our parents. We have a strong parent community who are supportive of the school, the students, and the broader HAIS community. Our parents have a voice and are actively involved in our daily school life.
Parent’s Activities with HAIS
Engaged in Children’s Learning
Our parents are engaged in their children’s learning, starting with the greeting at our “Green Gates” in the morning, to the daily pick up after school. They can always be counted on to volunteer their time, attend celebrations of learning, participate in learning conferences and enjoy special events throughout the year.
Supporting HAIS Community
Our parent community form strong bonds with one another. They support each other as a community should – whether it’s sharing a ride to school, assisting with pick up, arranging playdates or even having a game of badminton on the campus, our parents are there for one another, their children and the HAIS community as a whole.
We have watched our son grow over the last 3 years, HAIS's influence both from the teachers and the campus is what we were hoping for when enrolling Toan. The knowledge both social and academic he has gained are inspiring. The school's positive attention to students total wellbeing is what gives it the edge over others. The school continues its community growth and I'm sure it will be the first choice for parents when considering their children future education.
My two boys attend HAIS and are thriving. The teachers and management are supportive and student-focused. We live in DaNang but the boys get the shuttle bus as it’s worth the travel. The mix of curriculum, arts, sport & swimming, stem, the garden and extra-curricular activities makes this a well rounded school. We left the country for nearly a year and chose this school again on our return.

I am the mother of 3 children who are in K2, Year 2 and Year 6. I have been impressed by the quality of teaching, flexibility, and the listening skills of the different people I have met. A solution is always found and answers provided quickly. The campus is just extraordinary, with a perfect harmony between nature (fruit trees, garden, chickens! ...), which the children need to evolve, and the quality of the classrooms, whether in terms of materials, supplies, library, games as well as the computer room. Improvements are made on an ongoing basis. The program is perfect, even for the little ones (I was quite impressed, especially compared to a certain other "international school" in Hoi An!) Reports are sent to the parents on a weekly basis, which helps to keep track of the children's work. Having 3 children in the school, I clearly feel that a team effort is being made and that the teachers are working together and have strong support and guidance from the management, which is very important to me as a parent. The ECA (Extra-curiculum activities) are pretty nice, and the school has developed several very interesting free programs such as swim squad and basketball training. The values taught to the children are the most important thing in my opinion. The students have a real sense of teamwork and respect. The communication is not too much, not enough, and I understand it's one of the most difficult challenges of such scool. Hope HAIS will remain with the same level of quality while growing. Thank you for your flexibility for our family. I'm really proud to be part of the HAIS family. Personal message from a family who had their children in the 2 international schools in Hoi An: don't hesitate! With similar prices, there is no comparison! HAIS is a very serious school, compared to GreenShoots which must have had its hour of glory but is now more properly managed.
