Top Ten International Schools In Thailand

The Top Ten

1 NIST International School

NIST has been my home for the past 4 years, unlike for others who have been here for the past 13 years, I know how different NIST truly is from the other schools. Personally, I have studied in two other school that are here on this list. Yet I have to say NIST is truly the best. Th environment may be smaller physically, but that only makes the student body stronger, as we are more interconnected. Almost everyone knows each other here. With a strong educational system, great community services and top class sports facilites and teams, NIST truly has the best to offer. Students here are all-rounders and are extremely well prepared for the upcoming future, whether its for universities or even their career lives. With all this said, I can only say... GO FALCONS! GO NIST!

I spend 5 years as a student in NIST and I loved every second of it. It has made me the man I am today. The best part about NIST is that the schools not too big nor too small. It gives students the opportunity to take part in numerous ECAs and activities like other International schools but at the same time, almost every student has an opportunity because the school is small. Classes are small and the school has a family atmosphere which is amazing. The teachers are all very enthusiastic and love teaching and are always there to help. The college counsellors are top-notch and everything is perfect.

A school with a great holistic curriculum that accounts for the fact that students have many different areas of interest and plans for the future, it prepares them for university education in any country of their choice - which is what an international school should be doing.
Simply put, it is the best education you could offer your child.

2 Bangkok Patana School (BPS)

BPS is not only the best school in Bangkok, but out of the eight international schools I've been to, Patana is by far the best I've experienced.
The best thing I find about Patana, is the wide rage of facilities available for all students to freely use. 3 Large swimming pools, countless football pitches, and inside and outside playing courts, the sporting facilities are the best in Bangkok, I know this through inter school competitions I've been in, After visiting all the schools listed here, BPS is defiantly the best in this area.
I've been at BPS in primary, the teachers and parents around you are all very warm, caring and open minded. I thought this would change as I graduated to secondary school, but to my pleasure, It only got better, with non stop support from everyone around you, the teachers, not even on holidays, fail to reply to your email, or answer you questions. Dedication is a major factor to why we love it here so much.

To everyone thinking about which ...more

At Bangkok Patana my sons have had the opporunity to pursue varied interests and are encouraged to develop open minds and encouraged to work at their fullest potential. They love it!

One of the best educational institutes around - BPS offers extensive academic and extra-curricular opportunities to it's students, boasting arguably the most attractive campus in the city with state of the art facilities. Outside of the buildings and facilities, BPS is home to the most active, academically successful and versatile students in this region, with help from the amazing staff supporting them through their academia and so much more.

Bangkok patana school has many facilities which they make sure to take care of and keep renovating to ensure that their students are able to experience their learning in the best way possible with all the equiment needed. They prioritize the welfare of their students. I have been to a few schools and Patana is by far the best as it has a great environment in which you can fulfill your full potential express your ideas and have a freedom to be creative with your work. Students are also allowed to contribute to deciding the future of the school in how we sell products in the snack bar and how the school should save energy and more. The school now has solar panels on 3 or 4 of their main big buildings showing how they are a school which cares.

3 International School Bangkok (ISB)

ISB provides a wonderful education and also has a great balance of physical education and learning. There are also an abundant amount of facilities for students to use to extend our physical abilities in any sports. ISB is located in a wonderful community where everyone is supportive of each other and cares for each other day after day. Outside of school, ISB also offers many after school activities for students to join in on, strengthen our collaboration with others and also to strengthen our skills in that certain sport.
ISB teachers are also very dedicated to their subject and students. They care for each student and treat students kindly and fairly. I have been at ISB for 7 years and have never felt left out and ISB community members, parents, faculty and students are all very welcoming and when I moved in, I felt at home on the first day. ISB has been my second home and it has given me the best opportunities I will probably get in my life.
GO PANTHERS! ISB, ISB, ISB!

This school is the worst school I have ever been to. I always went to A rated public schools in the US and they were amazing. I am a gifted student with an IQ of 135 that always gets good grades and exceeds in the many schools I have been to... all except ISB (8th grade). Without a doubt this is the most horrible school in terms of academics. The teachers have NO idea how to teach and I learned almost absolutely nothing. My average math grade was an 102% (yep you read that right.. I was good and my teacher was too) in advanced algebra in my last school. Guess what? With the teacher here that expects you to lear everything from reading an online textbook with no explanation naturally that dropped to like a 70% or an "Approaching" or whatever it's called. The only reason kids get good scores in the supposedly advanced classes is because they are all Asian and have tutors after school that actually teach them stuff. In "Humanities" 50% of the time we just read and the ...more

Our three children all went to ISB for 13 years. It's a testament to ISB's quality and breadth of curriculum that each of the children have pursued different interests, namely International Communication, Liberal Arts and Sciences and professional dancer, all at renown universities in the Netherlands. ISB is truly diverse. It's the only international school in Thailand where the largest student body (American) is non-Thai. As a non-profit organization, ISB invests heavily in its teachers and facilities on an ongoing basis. This shows in the superb quality of the teachers (many are IB examiners) and the incredible facilities that the 15 hectare campus boasts. The track, 50m pool and gymnastics hall are of Olympic standard and the best in the country. ISB also has another 25m pool, two world-class libraries, an invention center, two theaters, 2 airconditioned gymnasiums, 2 non-airconditioned gyms, an artificial turf baseball field, numerous soccer and other sports fields, 12 tennis ...more

Best school ever! This school teaches good and its usefull

4 Wells International School (WIS)

Wells is a school which is more like a home, a friendly and loving environment everyone is so nice and loving - the activities in school is amazing! The studies are good and challenging as well, wells make sure everyone gets the best out of everyday, I couldn't be more thankful - I love my school

I cannot think of a better school for my child. School where teachers are engaged, care, where both academic culture and holistics matter. My child has developed so much since she started... Just sad about one thing: there is no such school in Europe.

Wells excelled in academics, performing arts and sports. Keep up the good work and the unity of the School. Congratulations to all the teachers, students and coaches of your hard earned trophies and medals.

I am in Wells and I know the experience of a good school with this.Not only the facilities but also the students, teachers, office staff, etc all are nice.They all take care of us and never make it feel like we are alone.In our school trips for our safety they can do anything and will also make us be comfortable.I LOVE THIS SCHOOL AND IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE MY SECOND HOME AND DON'T FORGET
GO SEAHAWKS!

5 International Community School (ICS)

As a teacher, I really value the sense of community within our school. There's a reason why "community" is part of the name. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to work here, and as I spend more time here, I find myself continually challenged to grow, both professionally and personally. There was a time when I was considering pursuing another career path, but after having worked at ICS for a while, I find myself becoming more and more passionate about teaching and particularly about positively influencing my students' lives. This is not only due to the encouragement of fabulous administrators that I work under, but also to the friendships I have with coworkers, some of whom have become some of my best friends, and the wonderful student body we have here. I now plan on staying here for some time, focusing on offering my students the best possible educational experience they could have in an environment that fosters community, growth, integrity, respect, and love, to name a few of the ...more

Three of our children attended ICS for 13 years each. They each had a wonderful experience and they loved the school, the teachers and the experiences provided. They were not only prepared for university academically, but also in decision-making skills. I'm thankful they received an education that didn't just revolve around the academic side, but they also had many great experiences in sports, drama and Student Ministries activities. Our family appreciated the emphasis on the spiritual aspect of life, and we're grateful that our children have a bigger understanding of life and know that it means more than just living for wealth and happiness.

ICS has something that no other school elsewhere offers --the close-knit relationships between teachers and their students. The teachers here love and wholeheartedly serve their students with no limits. They take the extra hours after school as well as weekends to be involved with their students' lives and always put the students first regardless of time. The entire faculty is intentional about following Christ, passionate about teaching, and unceasingly determined to serve the community. They reap pure joy from loving and spending countless of hours whenever students need them, which is something that no amount of tuition could ever pay for.

ICS is an amazing community of loving and learning! We are privileged to be a part of the work of Jesus here in Thailand. All four of our daughters have grown so much in this spiritually, socially, and intellectually rich environment, and we are thankful for the teachers and staff who mentor them in all dimensions as they travel life's path.

6 Harrow International School (HIS)

As a Harrovian, I'm proud to say that this is the best school. I've been going to Harrow since year 1 to year 8. I then left Harrow in the beginning of year 9 to come to America. My first year in America was pretty easy for me because I learned most of the things from Harrow. During my 8th grade/year 9 year, I became the top student by having A's for all my classes. However, when I was in year 8 at Harrow, I was in set 2 for English and set 3 for math. This made me think "wow, even though I'm not the smartest at Harrow, I'm still a lot smarter than the kids here (educationally). " And now, I'm a freshman in high school, I'm still learning the things that Harrow has taught me years ago. This proves that Harrow is really ahead with the education. I'm proud to be a Harrovian and Harrow is like my second home. All the teachers, staffs and faculties are really nice and I love all of them. They're very supportive to me and other Harrovians. Also, all the students there are really ...more

Excellent facilities, really very good at preparing students for British and American universities. After a couple of difficult years (floods, headmaster changes, etc. ) things are great there.

The school offers excellent education quality as well as professional and well-trained staffs

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!
worst school by far.
Deserves to be the worst school in Thailand.

7 Shrewsbury International School (SHB)

I received the best education I could ask for (ranging from primary to secondary school teaching) due to mostly high-class teaching and excellent facilities. The student community, on the other hand, isn't as diverse and stimulating as hearsay would have you believe it is. A solid 90% of it is solely and exclusively Thai, which for a "foreigner" can be rather stifling, repetitive and conducive to a narrow personality type. The pro of this arrangement is that the determination to excel at studies (which is tangible within the Asian culture) becomes highly influential and continuously prods one to exceed everyone's expectations. I found my niche, had a lovely six years with great results to prove it. Speaking frankly, despite certain imperfections I strongly recommend SHB to anyone (although especially to pupils who strive for academic excellence) and really and truly believe that out of the international schools available in Bangkok it is a diamond in the rough.

This school really prepared me for university life, and although there are many Thais there, the people who are non Thai are welcoming and friendly. I find that usually the non thais hang together and the thais hang together, but they do mix and do talk to each other! I loved this school, now I'm at Oxford, and all I've learnt has really helped me! Facilities are great, friends are lovely, support is amazing - there's always someone to help you, teachers are smart and good, and there is generally an aura of support and familiarity which surrounds this school. You are determined to work hard and in general, it's a lovely school. I have to say though, I was a drama kid - I participated in all the productions, performances and such, and they were of an extremely high standard. Students from other cities in the world sometimes came to evaluate our performances. I love this school.

The teachers at Shrewsbury are brilliant. In particular, the Teachers of Chemistry are outstanding subject experts and do an wonderful job of inspiring the students and enabling them to progress to top Universities around the world.

What a good school

8 Ruamrudee International School (RIS)

I personally loved my experience in Ruamrudee International School. The experience I had in RIS is probably something that none of the other international schools can offer since it is located in a peaceful city with lovely communities that always welcomes new and current students to join. I always have the impression of Thailand being the "traffic", "most polluted", and some parts "dirty" due to continuous flooding or lack of hygiene available for people. Well, it certainly is not a problem near RIS. It is located in the suburb area where there is a lot of nature still kept in tack, less traffic during school hours since it starts early and ends early, and the community services run by the students and parents let us maintain the mother nature as pure as possible.

The high school principal is finally leaving after four years of incompetence, bullying, negligence, driving out good teachers and competent assistant principals, and all around unethical behaviour. It was clear from the start that this guy was a disaster. The teachers knew it, the director knew it, the owners knew it, but as a "good Christian" he was allowed to stay and wreak havoc. It's probably too late to save this school. The priests who own this place don't care about quality education than do the rich Thai parents who send their kids here to get an inflated grades and an easy ride into Thai universities.

Ruamrudee International School is a school filled with academically focused students and many British, Australian, American and Canadian Teachers who have students' interest ( academic and athletic) at the heart of being an educator. I am proud to be working in this environment with diverse educators whose job it is to prepare these mostly second language learners for enrollment at some of the top, English speaking universities around the world. Our school profile proves that what we are doing is working. Students are not doing it all by themselves! Yes, some are highly motivated and some are not and yet a majority still are getting into top universities! Unfortunately, as in any school across the world, unhappy educators exist and it is in the best interest of students who we love and colleagues --both admin and teachers --that those unhappy people leave.

This school is so big I get lost all the time jk

9 KIS International School Bangkok (KIS)

KIS defines what a good international school should be. The caring community is open to all cultures and nationalities and the students are open minded. As a student, I feel very accepted in the school and know almost every other student. The teachers are able to guide the students towards success and with relatively small classes, this provides student's with interactive learning with the teachers and their peers. The graduates are able to go to amazing universities all around the world due to the success that the IB curriculum brings them since the Primary Years Program all the way to the Diploma Program. We have great sports teams that are welcoming for every student willing to participate including football (soccer), swimming, basketball, table tennis, track and field, badminton and volleyball. Other more creative students are able to join graphic design classes, the KIS Today club to write creative pieces for the website, media club and much more. Community activities bring ...more

KIS is a very warm community to be in. I have joined KIS for 3 years and still love it! The environments are pretty big, which means the school provides more activities in that areas. I just love how this school is updating, renovating things, and add activities. The study program is IB, which IB is the best learning program comparing to all. Teachers are able to manage each projects efficiently! Moreover, KIS encourage students' interests, for instance, KIS has big girl dance group. They encourage them by inventing TISAC Dance Competition every year to support the dancing girls. Therefore, KIS has a lovely community and environments to be in.

KIS is such a great school with a very strong community feel, solid academics, good location, lovely facilities. One of the strengths of the school is the staff and their experience with IB. It is a small but strong school and it has a great atmosphere. Graduates from KIS have been accepted into many great universities and so far, all the graduates have got into their first choice of universities.

Excellent in all areas. Stable and transparent. Good after school program. A top level school.

10 St. Andrews International School, Samakee

It is a very warm place

St. Andrews Samakee Early Years has one of the most amazing and motivated educators. It truly is a child centered school. I have a unique child who was reserved and anxious and after attending the school for 3 years, she is now thriving - independent, secure and always happy. The teachers are ever so patient and unbelievably accepting. I believe that SAS had established a strong foundation in every area of life for my child which would have a long lasting effect on her future.

The School should also consider Refugees in Bangkok.

Don't even bother

The Contenders

11 St. Andrew International School Bangkok (STA)

I've been at STA for 11 years, and I have to say that many of the comments are clearly very misleading.

STA has an incredibly successful athletics team - football, basketball, swimming, badminton etc. - and have won various competitions. There are facilities to support even non-athletic students and help them to enjoy sports.

The school encourages students to participate in extracurricular activities after school, including Model United Nations, World Scholar's Cup, SAS Choir, STA Theatre Group, Rock Band, and much more.

The academic standards are also outstanding, with extremely talented teachers. Now, I've realised that many of the other comments disapprove of some teachers at the school. However, is there any school that has never had a not-so-great teacher pass through? Unsatisfactory teachers are dealt with quickly, and immediately replaced by even better teachers. The standards are incredibly high all of my teachers have been great role models for ...more

The food in school is terrible most of the time and sometimes has no taste. The queue for food is always long and their prices for food is unreasonable. The place is dirty and they should get more people cleaning the place everyday. There are also too many students in school till the school is awfully crowded. Some teachers are bias and rude. Teachers here don't take things seriously sometimes and do absolutely nothing when students face problems or troubles with other students. Many students here are rude, mean, lazy and racist. Some students disturb others in class and annoy them by not working properly in group projects. However some students are nice, kind and hardworking. There are also too many Thais and Indians in the school. Overall, Standrews is okay and isn't too bad. The place is fine and the location is convenient. I am looking forward for the school to improve the quality of the food and better discipline to those students causing trouble to others.

I've been in St. Andrews International School Bangkok for several years now. I've had some great teachers, motivating and supportive. However, I've seen some teachers who have just been biased against me. Once you've got a bad impression on ONE teacher, it'll get spread. Teachers busy talking bad about students in the staff room. Barely any students achieve high scores for IB too. I'm desperate to leave this school as soon as I can.

It’s amazing

12 American Pacific International School

This school might not be situated in the best of locations, nor it may provide you the education better than those in the top tens, this school redefined the word "family" to me. Consisting of around 200 students on the Main Boarding Campus, this small community undoubtedly gives the feeling of warmth. I've been here since kindergarten and now I'm in my senior year, and I have no regrets at all for staying here when I had chances to move away. If you're looking for a close-knit group of people, this is the right place for you.

I like this school beacause it good very much I study English and it was fun best lucky lucky

THIS SCHOOL SUCKS NIST IS LIFE

13 Bangkok Christian International School (BCIS)

BCIS is an excellent and top quality international school offering a learning experience focused on the whole child like no other. You just have to experience it to believe it!

Love it here. School with fully equipped facilities. No words could describes how much this school is important to me.

The children here are nice and eager to learn. They have been taught well on the foundation of Christian morals.

I went to bcis for around two months and I hated every second of it. Many of the teachers are incapable of actually teaching and the facilities are an eyesore. During chapel the impressionable students were made to listen to some old fart’s outdated opinions on homosexuality. Schools are a place to learn and come to your own conclusions. Not a place for people to preach their opinions for lack of anything else to say.

14 Magic Years International Kindergarten

The school is now known as Magic Years International School. I have experience with their Kindergarten through Grade 3 program. It is completely different than when I went to school. There are no desks and set times for "math" or "English". All subjects are incorporated together and learning happens throughout the day. My children looked forward to school and it was great to see them take charge of their learning. - thaimed

I have stay at magic years for 5 years and it is still my best kindergarten school. The environment there is very clean and the activities is very fun with good friends to play with. The teachers there are very great. I speak English fluently at magic years.

Small school with a big heart. The school's layout seems to invite creativity and exploration. Worth a stop if you are looking for more individual attention. - repoulin

This school just opened a new campus and it looks beautiful. It is amazing to see how much this school has grown!

15 St. Andrews International School, Green Valley Rayong

My children have attended St Andrews for 6 years (in both Primary and Secondary) and I can thoroughly recommend the school. It is set in an amazing location, has a strong sense of community, dedicated teachers and a learning environment that really motivates the children. They feel confident, supported and are genuinely happy to go to school everyday. The activities and sports that are available are extensive and one of the highlights of this school, as well as the impressive exam results. As a parent you feel confident that St Andrews will encourage your child in every aspect.

Our child started in the nursery program and after three years has made exceptional progress by any measure. The staff at all levels is exceptional. We are very happy with everything here.

This school has more parents than teachers in campus. They love your money more than the academic results.

This is the best school in the area. 95% gest between an A+ or B as a final grade.

16 California Prep International School

This school is very good in term of taking care of it's students. I so impress with this school that all teachers do not involve in any types of drugs, so they are the good example for their students.

Parent

My children like this school- there might be something good at this school. As long as my children are happy, I am happy.

It's a drug-free school campus and the students are a priority. The relationship between everyone is like a family. The caring attitude of the teachers is the main ingredient.

Like the best International Schools in Thailand, California Prep International School produces highly academic and motivated students. Talents and skills just naturally develop without any force nor threats of grades. The school’s policies are firm but friendly implemented. Discipline is one of the major businesses of this school.

17 The Regent's International School

I am a teacher at the Regent's school, and although my view point may be considered biased the points that I share with you are based as accurately and as honestly as possible. The warm personalized environment in which our students are educated is excellent and the care and attention that each student receives is exemplary. The campus is developing positively, with large amounts of space and grounds. Facilities are also impressive for a school within the heart of Bangkok. Our student learning is engaged through multiple facets; we are more than just an educational institution, the approach to attaining knowledge is sought by immersing our students within wealth of holistic experiences. Only then we will achieve our aims of creating a well rounded young person who can positively affect his/her surroundings.

If you want a school that knows your child then Regents International School is the one for you. Unlike the schools in this top ten list this is a smaller school where the staff and pupils work together as a family. The result is an all round education with excellent academic results.

Great school and should be in the Top 10. The staff are so caring and very professional. High standards of education and an excellent English speaking Environment. Highly recommend. My two children are blossoming in this school.

Very high quality education to learn. Good teachers, good teaching, best school in Bangkok I suppose. The foods are great, traditional Thai food and international food. Not expensive than any other British school.

Great teachers, world class textbooks and resources, inexpensive, very friendly environment.

School is good, price is average, grade 1 until 6 is good

The school is good though some teacher are good and its was fine. I’m a student of this school and if you don’t know anything, stop making a stupid website like this. It’s useless

19 Concordian International School

This school is such a great dedicate from the founder, principals, teachers and all staff. They really put all of their own energy to the students with also maintain a good Thai manner. This is the most beautiful school in Thailand, the building, the tone of the colors and also the two new building that specific on Science, Art & Technology. Please come to visit the school and you will know the differences.

Our daughter graduated from CIS a few years ago. She was a valedictorian and now attending UCLA. Naturally, we love her very much and are very proud of her. Well, as I said, that's natural. However, we also felt that the management of CIS love their students as much as do do ours. That's pretty amazing. In addition, they manage to bring about tangible results through their professionalism. Thanks a million.

I have been working at Concordian for the past 4 years and I have seen that this school does not only care about the student's academic result, but also, and more importantly, the students' well-being. The school put special attention to the students' heart and mind with excellence management, teachers, counselor, and staff team. I don't think I will ever come to know a more caring school than Concordian.

Great honest school!

20 Modern International School, Bangkok

I study at Nist and that is so mean

It's great if you are interested in developing your child academically. Also the teachers and staff are very caring, helpful and approachable, unlike many of the other so called elite schools (shouldn't forget to mention how the staff at NIST is so unconcerned and unhelpful ). So yeah having been a part of Modern for almost a decade I am indeed proud of it. For what we got here was not only amazing, but truly beneficial and extremely worthwhile.

Well everyone is kind so is the teacher, So defiantly a good school with logical school fee.

Great school but needs to change Sport Teacher. Very bossy and makes weird rules. Demotivating.

21 Chiang Mai International School

This school is by far the best, it might not be big it is small but it has 50 years, it is the first international school in chiang mai, I feel that as a student I have been welcomed and cmis has opened the world to me with full of knowledge, creativity, ideas, and most of all the best teachers.

Great school for the kids

This school provides very good education. All of the staff and students are nice. CMIS is also the 1st international school in Chiang Mai, and has over 60 years of teaching experience,

22 Crescent International School (CIS)

Wonderful staff and humble teachers. Much appreciated. I've been so grateful to have my children in CIS

I feel privileged to be apart of cis. Everyone is just so friendly and helpful that you feel so warm and comfortable. Love everything about it and miss it a lot

Glad to be here, after all the time I have spent here I will surely miss everything about CIS when I graduate from here. Friendly students, Friendly teachers and even the staff. I always felt loved and warmth. People here are always ready to help and active.

Nice teaching

23 Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School (BKK Prep)

I myself was former student of this school and to be honest this was one of the worst school's there is out there no standards what so ever. The former headmaster of secondary was a complete idiot,the way this school is ran is utterly ridiculous. Most new people don't know this but the headmaster was fired because the students were failing the exams and getting low grades If you think I am making BS stories about let me tell you this I started attending this school since year seven until year eleven in that time span almost all of the original students that are in my class since year seven are all gone because they just could not stand how poorly the school was becoming each year. Some of the staff are good to some extent but you can find better in other schools this I guarantee you. My former school was Harrow which is a great school I had leave to come to prep because it was closer to home. - jwalls

Bangkok Prep is a breath of fresh air compared to the others. Bangkok Prep's staff care about what my daughter goes through and about her accomplishments. We are sad to move away from Bangkok, Thailand, but glad that we were able to share some of our daughter's tween year in a warm and encouraging environment. My daughter will treasure her time forever. We'll miss you, Bangkok Prep!

Bangkok Prep reminds me of NIST ten years ago when it was relatively unknown and a newcomer in the education world. Over time, it has evolved to be, in my humble opinion, one of the best medium sized school, providing a comfortable, safe, academic studying environment for my child. There is a strong communal bond between staff, students and parents, and now the accolades are rolling in. They've achieved commendable accreditation and the academic, sporting, musical, social awareness and exemplary achievements from BP's students, a confirmation of all that. Bangkok's best kept secret no more... There's a waiting list of about 3 years for a spot.

Bangkok Prep is an actually very, very good school. but I do have to say a few things... I am a currrent student at the school and the curriculum is one of the best (in my opinion). regarding the comments about students, here is one thing, find the right group of friends. here at Bangkok Prep we do tend to fork into our own little friendship groups. yes, there are some kids that are a little much but once you have the right group of friends, you’ll be fine:) once again, Bangkok Prep is a definite, perfectly good school.

24 Anglo Singapore International School

It is a school I would definitely recommend to other people because not only are the academics incredible, the CCAs they provide has been amazing. The teachers there are extra hardworking, ensuring my child is doing the best that she can. People are saying that it is the school with the best curriculum, I couldn't have said it better myself. This school has guided my child and now my child is on the path to top Ivy League schools.

I think ASIS is one of the best schools in Bangkok. As you know, Singaporean curriculum is very competitive in the world. I hope my child will be a person who has ability to think logically and a quadrilingual who speaks in English, Mandarin, Thai and the mother tongue.

It's a a very academic school which is good for my children.

I have been learning in this school for a long tome and I think it is the best school for me

27 Niva International School

NIVA International School deserves to be ranked within the top 10 international schools in Thailand. The school provides not only high quality academic education but also great social skills and lessons that will prove extremely useful throughout the students life during and after NIVA.

As an 2016 senior currently studying in NIVA, I can state with confidence that the school has made a leader out of me and has taught me countless academic and life skills. The teachers are extremely talented and adroit at their teaching techniques and interpersonal skills.

NIVA, as amazing as it is already, is constantly under development. Very often, new school facilities are introduced into the school, as well as new promising students. I am proud to study in NIVA and will always be.

I have been with Niva for three years, What I find unique about this school from various others schools where I have worked is perfectly student centered and truly International. This school tirelessly works towards its mission and vision. The Management have never shown a compromise in teacher's quality, infrastructure and facility for kids. The most admirable part of this school is the counselling and leadership division which monitors each individual kid and effectively works on their needs along with parents. Keep it up Niva. I will Miss you.

NivaIs is a great school where two of my children studied for 10 and 12 years. They were both good in English, math, science, accounting and most other subjects they taught. The teachers were caring and programs were well planned and successfully for the children to become aware of their leadership potentials and the contributions they make to the community through them. The school was serious to teacher integrity and social responsibility. Both my children, now adults, skipped English 1 and went straight to literature based English from freshmen year in La Sierra University, California. My son graduated with the president's award. Many of NivaIS students are in top jobs in entertainment, business and high level management; one of them working with the world bank. NivaIS does a great job in building good character and speaking great English and high standard Thai language. I can say a lot more than this about this boutique school that should be very proud of its facilities and the ...more

Although I've only been here for a year, I love it. There are good teachers and GREAT Food

28 RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok

RIS Swiss Section is an international school in Bangkok that applies a Swiss and German curriculum. All grades are taught from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. The students learn not just English but also German during their time at the RIS Swiss Section. Successful graduates can further enter all Universities in Switzerland without further examination or interview. Students are taught in very small classes to assure an individualized learning experience for each student. Most of the students are from Europe, so the standards for English and German are very high.

Very good school, like a family!

29 Saint John Mary International School

This is where my son learned to smoke, drink alcoholic beverages, and take drugs. This school has given my family problems.

School that doesn't discipline it's students. Male students harassing female students, school doesn't do anything. Nice! School is biased. Not recommended at all

This school is very nice but sometime teacher is not fair but this school teach me a lot of think

The teachers and students are really kind and nice.

30 American Prep International School

This school is the best school in term of caring and teaching. My children learnt a lot of good things at this school. I can say that this school is the best international school in Hat Yai.

Per-Say, Nice & qualified teachers and friendly & serviced minded staff. This school is located in Hat-Yai, Songkla.

31 Traill International School, Bangkok

This school is my kid's second home. Very warm environment.

The staff and teachers are friendly and professional. The students have many after-school sports programs to choose. The classes are kept small in size. My son is very happy there.

Every moment is great for children learning and best opportunity to have a small community being closely like home but looking professional teaching.

School is very laid back, can speak thai whenever I want to in class. teacher don't look me and don't really care, its fun and easy

32 Adventist International Mission School

Adventist International Mission School (AIMS) is one of the finest International Schools in Thailand that provides quality education, nurturing students to become Critical Thinkers, Effective Communicators, Exemplary Workers, Caring Citizens, and Self-Managers.

This school sucks

Simply one of the Finest International Schools in Thailand. - edanpedragosa

33 Thai Sikh International School (TSIS)

I have been studying in TSIS for past 5 years and it is here where I learned the true value of virtues and how to develop them within myself. This school has given me much more than an academic education. It has taught me to be a virtuous person with all the skills to be on the top of the world!

This school is real good, where more than studying it helps to learn. It helps develop a good character of the children. Along with studies there are more activities that you in learning and helps you be friendly with everyone. An environment in which you feel like home, an experience of excitement. Each child gets attention and is helped to improve and develop.

Who would go here who is not a Sikh? They always demand special treatment in Thailand like exemption from motorcycle helmet law. You will be a fanatic like them or ostracized if you are not an Indian stay away from this cesspool.

One of the best Schools in Thailand.

34 Bangkok Christian International School

We provide the student to be the leader of 21 st century, first they should learn themselves with Christian environment.

Top quality academic program, safe Christian environment, small "feels like home" atmosphere with a close knit family environment, great location, friendly, fun, exciting, high standards, students get into top universities around the world, and so much more...can't say enough good things about BCIS! There is no perfect school, but I sure do feel blessed to be a part of the BCIS family...

Always encourage students to not GIVE UP IN EVERYTHING!

I am one of the bcis student and school is terrible.

Parent...
Hardworking and dedicated teachers. Students are neat, friendly and polite. Always grateful to this school and forever will be.

36 Pan-Asia International School

Very high staff turnover. The management structure changes every other year. New students are brought in with no appraisal and no warning to their teachers. Teachers are almost entirely unqualified. Science and math are taught by non native speakers with substandard English. Young students are regularly left unsupervised leading to injuries and student fights. The syllabus is always changing and you will be told they are an IB school which is inaccurate at best. The school can barely afford paper and printing facilities but have installed a petting zoo (kids aren't allowed to use it). Special needs students are welcomed but no additional attention is payed to them. After school activities are laughable and cost extra. The schools administration is so bad that a primary teacher who was fired for inappropriate physical contact with young girls was accidentally rehired the following year. Students and Teachers leave at such a high rate that the only thing management has time to do is ...more

I think PanAsia is promising to be one of the best international schools in Bangkok. Very good facilities they have; tennis court, golf, football, covered court swimming pools, gym/ fitness..

Students are very active and the teachers are really supportive. They have students from many nationalities in the campus that makes the school environment real international.

Another plus point is that students are always encouraged the to participate in national and international competitions. And they have many good results and medals in different subjects. My son participated in one of them and had honorable mention. Furthermore their graduates with the advantage of ib curriculum have been having admissions in very prestigious universities in Thailand and all over the world.

I do suggest everyone this school..

Pan asia international school is one of the best schools in Bangkok for some reasons like, very international environment, caring staff, qualified teachers in their fields and most importantly socials activities inside of thailand and overseas. Of course, not to forget tech based education and academic supportt.

I am new in Thailand and in this school. I have 10 years experience. As math teacher in international schools. This is my third school and third country as foreigner though I have seen many others. It has international qualities with its teachers facilities. Also it is good in teaching English with native teachers. My daugher is also studying there and she likes it a lot. Finally the teachers and stuff really care about students' moral education. Hence students and stuff are very respectful people..

37 Trinity International School

Nice school and they hire teachers without prejudice. You can be a black teacher, Indian, or Muslim and they will give you a job because they are good Christians. The only problem is that they don't pay teachers for the summer vacation in order to save money. So when teachers get to the end of the year... they get nothing. Just 2 months without pay. Who would work at a job where you don't get paid for 2 months? So you end up working summer school if your lucky.

This is. Great school come and enjoy it

It is a very nice school and very clean and very good education!

Worst school ever don’t come here

38 Thai Chinese International School (TCIS)

I think this is a great school. I graduated from TCIS from the class of 2013 and I was able to get in great Universities in the states along with some scholarship offers.

TCIS has the best Chinese learning system out of all international school of Thailand, and the best Robotics class by winning first place in every competition.

The only international school that teaches 3 languages with REAL Chinese. Great service, excellent teachers from different regions, and hot students

Great teachers!

39 Singapore International School of Bangkok (SISB)

This school is a good environment school, not like the other school. The student are very nice, they are good children as I compared with the other TOP international school that I had went to. Somehow the OTHER International School are not so into the student, like if the student are doing an inappropriate thing in the school the teachers won't be able to know about it or maybe don't even care about those student, but in SISB they do care about this problem or this thing, so student in THIS school are innocent and doesn't have harm at all, as I says in my opinion SISB is a very good society for your kids to be in.

Lots of homework, expect 2 hours+ daily from Primary 3 up. Very high pressure and competitive Singapore environment, even for parents. 99% Thai kids. Kids are streamed according to English and Maths exam test results. Things are changing somewhat with cancellation of term 2 exams and no exams for Primary 1 and 2 students this year. Teachers are relatively young, turnover is high. Filipinos are used a lot for kindergarten level. Essentially you are paying for what is free education in Singapore. Overall 4/10

Leading International School in Thailand Accredited by CIS that could customize to Asian Needs

I learn at this school since I was 5 yrs old I first started at kindergarten 2 when I just moved to Bangkok the teachers are very nice and always find a way to put things to make us remember things starting primary 1 the teachers are sometime strict and the more you grow the more strict it is butt this only helps you be smarter they also teach Chinese which is pretty strong and kids there also take the Chinese international test (HSK)this school is really good and I am pretty sure that your first day here will already give you a lot of things and there's no need to be worried about friends they eont know you but soon they might be your best friend! If you are shy there will be prefects (the person in the red tie and the one with the tags that says trainee prefects)there to help you find your classroom to finding friends so you totally recommend here all the subject's curriculum are really really strong! I TOTALLY RECOMMEND HERE!

40 St. Stephen's International School

I send my kids to this school and all of my kids are being accepted to good and high quality universities because of this school. Although this school is not that big but the quality of this school is just so much that we can't count.
SIS gives my child many opportunities because of the attention from teachers as well. I've send my kids to many schools such as Wells, Harrow, St. Andrews etc, but overall SIS gave my kids so much more than other schools like sports, trips and academic things!

It's an okay school. I studied there for 11years since I was 2 years old. I admit the primary school was superb but the secondary school doesn't really work. People may think the universities r good but the university destinations in other schools E. G Harrow, ISB are honestly a lot better. The primary school gives children loads of opportunities E.G. FOBISSEA because the school is smaller so its easier to get into the team but in secondary the opportunities will fly away. Yeah really. The curriculum is poor in secondary compared to schools like Harrow. I think it is a really great idea to send your child to SIS from Nursery-year3 they're the best years. After that move to ISB or Harrow. This gives the best opportunity to make your child a successful person because SIS does a perfect job starting to mould a successful person. They can't really finish off the mould. Harrow and ISB are really good at both starting and are professionals in finishing the mould. Anyway opportunities for ...more

We are Thai parent and our 2 kids are in primary. This school is the best location for us as it's not far from my office and house. For a year experience in this school, I think it's not too bad. It's what we expect for the tuition fee that we paid. Most of students are Thai, but level of English is not too bad. PS: our past experience was 1 year aboard and 3 years in Thai bilingual school.

I love this school

41 Lanna International School Thailand (LIST)

The British international school of Chiang Mai

Strong academics and good family relations

42 Ekamai International School (EIS)

Ekamai International School offers more than just a place for students to learn academic courses. This school sees every student's potential and skills and always guide he or she for a successful future. Each year students graduate with various diplomas that will see them all get accepted into almost every colleges and universities both locally and also around the world.

Ekamai International School is, I believe, the oldest international school in Thailand. It has sent out students to various parts of the world and these students are all now in the top places of every field. They have made great differences in their own community and have expanded this change throughout the world.

The community, staff and students are dedicated and devoted to the betterment of society and people around them. I've been at EIS for a long time and I feel that this school certainly challenges a students potential in all fields!

It's better than what you think

44 International Pioneers School, Bangkok

After the new building has been made its getting better, actually one child did not died from exhausting heat but he drowned. I know because I am studying in this school. The studies are really good and its getting better till the best. Keep it up!

One of the good international schools located in Central Bangkok, providing Quality Affordable International Education. Keep it up.

No AC for the classroom. Place is a dump. Looks like the third world. Headmaster's office is in a trailer. One student died there from heat exhaustion while playing in the dusty dirt field. Aluminum siding for a roof.

Sorry an error A should be capital.

45 Garden International School, Ban Chang, Eastern Seaboard

One of the best International School that I could highly recommend. I am a parent of 2 and very happy to share of how my Kids love and excited to come to school everyday. That's what we want! The more my kids are happy and excel in academic the more we are happy too. Teachers and Staff are very friendly.

If you're looking for a well-rounded education, this is the place to be. Besides focusing on academics, it emphasises on the need to develop empathy among the students and staff, which is lacking in a lot of educational institutions in the modern world.

A very family-friendly community International School. Lots of community events.

This is a great school. Both of my children go here and they love it. The teachers work really hard and the facilities are very good. - GardenSchool

47 Thai-Singapore International School (TSIS)

I used to have a child at Thai-Singapore International School and I would not recommend this school to anyone. They are very mis-leading and not very honest with your child's progress. They do not take initiative with the student or the parents for overall improvement in the child's education. I know first hand that they do not even respect their teachers. The school will eventually be all filipino teachers because they are cheaper to employ than western teacher's with higher education quality. However, they still charge the same tuition fees and even increase it as if your child will be receiving the same quality of education. Again, I strongly discourage anyone from choosing this school. We moved our child to Berkeley International School which is more expensive but the quality of the education and the staff is significantly better ten fold!

Our school implements a comprehensive curriculum issued by the globally respected Singapore Ministry of Education to provide our students with the best education.

We nurture and develop students in the Moral, Intellectual, Physical, Social and Aesthetic domains over their formative years. The educational objectives of these five domains are achieved through the best practices, from the east and the west, with a keen emphasis on Asian values and obvious links to global values.

I am a parent at Thai-Singapore International School and I have two daughters studying at Primary level. Since they transferred to TSIS, they have never ran out of stories to tell me about what they enjoyed for the day. They would always share their highlights for the day such as reading their favorite books before the classes begin the interesting and enjoyable lessons they have from their teachers the opportunity to explore their talents and skills during elective time and being able to visit T.V. channels or news agencies.The school has a resort-like atmosphere and the teachers and staff are very friendly and accomodating. Parents are updated with the daily activities of the students and parents are free to communicate with the teachers for any queries. Even the management welcomes any parents who would like to speak to them, thus, assuring parents that the school takes care of the students. As a parent, I am assured that my daughters are safe and happy in their second home - TSIS.

GREAT FACILITIES

48 PPMAS-SINGAPORE International School

This is one of the best international school for my kids. I enroll my kids to this school. I only wish that they will run the school to secondary level. If you have not enrolled your kids to any school, I suggess every family choose visit this school before you make a decision. I am sure you will not disappoint with this school.

Singapore management has money mind. Good for parents who want to pay a lot for schooling because their kid can't compete in public school system.

This is a true international school. They enrolle 50% of Thai's family and 50% of international family. The class size is right only 20 students in each class. The ratio of the students to teacher is 5 to 1. The tution fee is different from other Singapore International School. The tuition fee at PPMAS-SINGAPORE International School is reasonable compare to other Singapore Curriculum out there. We enrolle our kids to this school. We encorrage any family to check this school before make decision for your kids.

We' ve been visited PPMAS-SINGAPORE International School for a couple time already. We love this school. It is one of the cleanest schools. Their curriculum is very well prepair path for my twin. I would recomend this school to my freinds.

50 Glory International School (GIS)

Glory like home for all student. We love everything there.

My son was study here. He's love his school so much. I think this is most important point of school. How they make children fall in love school.
Wanchai W. Thiti's Parent

It has been such a special year since my husband and I have brought our son to be part of the Glory family. Throughout our time here, we have learned a lot of good tips from the school that we could apply in our home. Because our family values goodness, we believe that those who do good deserve to be complimented, so that they would have the motivation to continue doing good deeds. Therefore, this letter is like a thank you letter which will share my experiences with Glory.

Thiti has moved to Glory and joined P4. Within a year, his English has improved a lot, making me think that we should have sent him here earlier. I still remember clearly when he was still in kindergarten. As parents, we always want the best for him. Therefore, our criteria for choosing the right school for him is that it has to be not too far from home, the environment in the school has to be friendly, the school should have a good reputation, it should be wide in space, and most importantly, it has to ...more
