Accreditations and Memberships
Renaissance is one of the leading international schools in Saigon. We are proud that our focus on academic excellence, student centred learning and a family friendly environment are recognised by a number of high-profile, exclusive external accreditation organisations which are listed below:
We are a fully CIS accredited school. The Council of International Schools is a membership and accreditation body for quality international schools worldwide. Our accreditation was awarded in 2017 and is a testimony to the school's on-going commitment to quality international education.
By being accredited Renaissance has demonstrated its commitment to international education and continual improvement. Colleges and universities acknowledge that a CIS Accredited School meets globally recognised standards and promotes qualities and skills that they are seeking in students.

Renaissance is authorised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation to offer the highly regarded IB Diploma and as a consequence, our students graduate into prestigious universities and colleges around the globe.
The IB supports schools and teachers to provide a rigorous, high-quality education, offering professional development that improves pedagogy and leadership. IB programmes challenge students to excel in their studies and encourage both personal growth and academic achievement. Research from leading institutions shows that IB students are more likely than their peers to succeed in higher education.
Cambridge IGCSE qualification opens doors for Renaissance learners and is a passport to success. The qualification is recognised by all international colleges and universities and employers around the world as evidence of academic ability. Cambridge IGCSE's help students become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged.
Cambridge Assessment International Education is part of Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge, which makes CAIE the only provider of international qualifications that is wholly owned by a world-leading university.

In October 2018, Renaissance became an official member of FOBISIA (The Federation of British International Schools in Asia). FOBISIA is a membership association of British schools in Asia. Founded in 1988, FOBISIA aims to promote a British style education system in schools throughout Asia and gives students the opportunity for collaboration and friendly competition through its annual sporting and musical festivals.

Renaissance is authorised to provide the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The IPC provides children with subject goals, personal learning goals and international learning goals, which are defined for each age phase. Children learn best when they want to learn and the IPC has over 130 different thematic units of learning, designed to appeal to children's interests and help them to learn more about the world around them, while complementing the core subjects.
Renaissance follows the National Curriculum for England, which sets out the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects in most year groups in Primary and Secondary. The curriculum is structured into four Key Stages (for students aged 5 – 16), for each of which certain subjects must be taught. The National Curriculum aims to support the statutory duties of schools to offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based.
