Hi all,
I would like to know which international school is the best in Yangon. My son is now studying at a secondary school which is Singapore Government School. We want our son to transfer from Singapore school to Myanmar international school. We are considering for Yangon Academy school and International School Myanmar(ISM). But the school fees are different by almost half. So we don't know which one to choose. Please give us advice. Thanks a lot.

Hi Richard,

 

International schools in Myanmar are slightly different from each other. The curriculum that each school uses is also different. To be honest, we cannot say which one is the best. They are good in their own way. Some schools use Singaporian Syllaus and some use American or British curriculum.

So far, International School Yangon (ISY) and Yangon International School (YIS) are the most famous ones in Yangon. They have very qualified teachers all over the world and they have very good supports for learning environment. They are quite expensive as well. ISM seems to stand in third place among these three schools.

Yangon Academy is quite smaller compared to those schools. But it's the best to those who like such a close society in the school.

 

One of my friends went to YA in person to enquire about it. YA staffs are so cool and they explained everything about school, especially the curriculum. If the curriculum is different and doesn't suit to the curriculum that your child is currently studying or studied in Singapore before, they will surely give you suggesstions which other schools you can choose in Yangon.

I don't think school fees make the quality of teaching-learning process different. Fees might be different as the facilities they support to the students are different.

So, please don't worry even if you chose the cheap school. It should be fine.

Hope you find a right school for your child!

Cameron, 

 

I'm interested in working in Yangon and have sent my resume out to Yangon Academy. I can't find any reviews of the school anywhere. Can you tell me about it? 

 

Susan
