Students ABCIS are placed into one of the four different school Houses, which helps them feel a sense of belonging by being a part of a House community.

The House system develops positive interaction among year levels from Reception through to Year 13. Students are given the opportunity to gain points, both individually and collectively for their House, through various activities and events held in school. This in turn, will promote healthy competition and allow a sense of mentoring and leadership to build up between the older and the younger students.

Each teaching staff member is also placed in a House. The even distribution of staff allows students to become more familiar with those staff members they rarely have a chance to interact with, or turn to for support.

Reflecting our community the four Houses are each represented by city of Vietnam and a nickname chosen by students. They are:
