Welcome to VIS


Elsa Donohue, Head of School

Imagine a school that values individuals’ interests, passions and talents and challenges each of them to reach higher levels of understanding… Imagine a place that breathes a strong sense of community and where parents, faculty and staff work together on behalf of what is best for students… imagine a place where every person is a learner… a place that thrives because everyone is challenged, inspired and empowered to be a responsible citizen in a changing world. Welcome to that place. Welcome to the Vientiane International School (VIS)!

At VIS, we know that learning is a journey and we pride ourselves on our commitment to deliver our mission. We build strong relationships within our community, but also with our host nation, Laos. We offer an opportunity for our learners to be challenged and to expand their way of thinking, considering different perspectives. Progressive and proven teaching and learning strategies are used by our faculty of expert, experienced educators to deliver a sound curriculum that is organized through the highly recognized and respected IB framework.

Come for a tour and watch our professional educators in action. You will be impressed by the attention they provide to students and to creating a rich and meaningful learning environment, where everyone is challenged, inspired and empowered to be a responsible citizen.
