Primary School

The Primary School at Vientiane International School is a friendly and vibrant place where our students and staff learn and grow together.

Our students quickly feel at home here. We have a wonderful team of teachers and assistants, and a very supportive parent body.

The curriculum is centered around the inquiry-based International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) which challenges students to develop their skills, knowledge and understandings in authentic contexts. Our students develop confidence in themselves by actively inquiring and questioning.

Students are motivated to develop the skills they will need to be prepared for this ever-changing world and be able to transfer these skills to different contexts.

In the Primary school there is a wonderful atmosphere and enthusiasm for learning that is so evident among students and staff. Students are also encouraged to express their opinions and respect those of others. At VIS we pride ourselves in being a dynamic and community focused school.

Whether you are a prospective parent or interested teacher I hope that browsing through these primary pages not only provides you with the information you need, but that you gain an insight into just how special our school is. We look forward to seeing you here in Vientiane someday.

- Glenn Lawler, Primary Principal
