Saigon Star International School

Middle Years Generalist, specialisation in English

Far East, Vietnam

Middle Years Generalist, specialisation in English (new position)

Saigon Star International School is seeking a fully-qualified and experienced Middle Years Generalist, with a specialisation in English, to fill a full-time teaching position.

About the school

Saigon Star is a small school with less than 200 students. We currently cater for children aged between 2-12 and plan to grow into a full middle-school and high-school in the coming years, whilst maintaining our maximum class sizes of 20 students.

As one of only 23 accredited International Curriculum schools worldwide, we proudly deliver the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) for our 11-14 year olds, as well as the English National Curriculum in English, Maths and Computing. 

The school itself is located in a quiet residential area of Ho Chi Minh City, only 15 minutes drive from the vibrant city centre. The campus is full of greenery with a serene and peaceful atmosphere. Our aim is to provide a learning environment in which all children feel safe, happy and content. We have spacious classrooms, enviable student-to-teacher ratios, and deliver individualised learning programs as necessary. We believe that every child learns differently and one size does not fit all.

 If you like the idea of school as a family instead of a corporation, you’ll fit right in with us.

Who should apply?

The ideal candidate will be a team player who is ready to adapt their established skills to the cultural expectations of an exciting and growing international school in Ho Chi Minh City. We have high expectations of our staff and we are looking for teachers who are willing to go the extra mile in all areas of school life. Our school has a strong sense of community and family spirit, so the ideal candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work closely with our enthusiastic and supportive parents. 

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated, dynamic and creative teacher who would like the opportunity to work in an energetic school. A flexible approach and a willingness to learn and adapt are essential. To work overseas is a tremendous experience in its own right. To be part of a developing school, to help shape it, build its reputation and make it a success is, we believe, a great opportunity. 

If you are interested in living and working in a vibrant Vietnamese city, and believe you can help us to achieve our aims, then we would like to hear from you.
