Top Ten International Schools In Thailand
The Top Ten
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.
Moving to Bangkok with the family in 2016 directly from the public Swedish school system you really noticed the difference. One of our daughters, at the time 12 years of age, came home one day during the first week saying "It is fantastic, the teachers here really believe in me, they think I can become someone". That statement says it all and even though the students do not always appreciates that there also is expectations on their efforts, they will understand the benefit later on. I can highly recommend NIST for being an outstanding school and a fantastic community to be part of.V 204 Comments Visit Website9
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 International School is a good school with excellent teachers and support staff that make your children feel like home. This is good value for money and I think there is no sense in sending your child to NIST or other high cost schools as they don't deserve the money they take from the parents. I have seen several international schools in Bangkok and looked at their curricula and I saw no difference. I don't no about the high school grades but with regards to primary education and facilities, I guess Wells is one of the best.
So pleased we selected Wells for our daughter, she has really blossomed there and we are confident we made the right choice. The staff are so friendly and helpful and we love the environment. It really is a joy to see our little girl develop and we thoroughly recommend Wells to anyone.V 82 Comments Visit Website9
I'm a current student and I have been at BPS for over 11 years and I have to say, it offers many outstanding opportunities for students. Its sports programme is exceedingly exceptional with many highly trained coaches. I myself have been part of many sport teams in BPS. As well as Patanas impressive sporting reputation, there are many highly qualified teachers at this school. With many 'Top in Thailand' students at school, Bangkok Patana does not offer scholarships and do not select students for performance. This shows that Bangkok Patana is a great school at giving students the best possible opportunities for success. Overall, this school is amazing and I will be sad to leave one day as I truly consider BPS and the BPS community my home.
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.
AMAZING EDUCATION AND SERVICES!
They provide amazing education but not to much so students also get to try many of the great sports teams that they provide within the school grounds. Personally being a student at patana makes me feel like my education is better than it would be if I was still in a local school in my home country.
Love this school! Current parent here. Children have made strong friendships and love their friends and teachers. The curriculum is well balanced and varied enough to suit every student's interests. Teachers do try and cater to the individual, moving them to different levels in maths and reading depending on their ability through the year. The school and the parent community are welcoming and I cherish the access that parents have to the library and resources during school hours, which makes you feel part of the Patana family all the more.V 134 Comments
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.
Amazing school, love itV 239 Comments
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.
The only school that has a great Mandarin program. But this is not just what makes Concordian special. The school being medium sized has enough staff and resources to take great care of each and every student. It is this amazing caring attitude of the teachers and staff that make this such an amazing school and sets it apart from other schools.
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.V 143 Comments
Fantastic school and community. great academics and facilities
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
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
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!
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
It's the best school I get tons of A+
It is the best school
I am a student of harrow, I do not support the school in some ways. The school is starting to value money more than the effort they put into the students, it is a Thai international schoolV 28 Comments
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.
A great place to be. Great staff, great teachers, great friends. The community here is excellent. I believe one of the main concerns for International schools nowadays is problems dealing with drugs, alcohol, etc. My son has never been exposed to any of that and the community is really supportive of these things. It is sad to see some students who leave KIS and get exposed to these kinds of things.V 83 Comments
A truly international school with the best academic results of all International Schools in Bangkok, if you want an international education and an outstanding academic performance I would recommend this school. Location can't be beaten either!
Supposed to be 2 according Wikipedia
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.V 32 Comments
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
My daughter currently attends here after relocating from the UK. From what I understand, it has been under poor leadership for the past few years and the new current Head as been brought in to bring the standard back up to where it should be. My comments would have to be related to the after school activities - poorly run! The school dinners are completely overpriced with a complete lack of choice. It all seems to be Thai despite there being an "international" section. This is rubbish! The communication from the school is quite appauling as well. You're lucky you get a calendar week's notice of an event taking place, like sports day etc
Not on a par with the standard government UK school despite the hefty fees you pay here for that "private education". It's not the same standard by any means sadly.
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.
The school's social hierarchy is damn messed up. There's a guy called Kento who belongs to Michael and sucks his toes everyday.V 40 Comments
My girlfriend is amazing and she went here so...
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.V 56 Comments
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.
Both my children attend Regents, they have been in Primary and Secondary and have made great progress, especially in Maths. They love the sport there and have enjoyed being taught by English teachers.V 65 Comments
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.V 3 Comments
This is a very good school and there are many welcoming friends waiting for you! The staff, teachers, and the principal all welcome you for a guide. I've been to this school for six years and I loved each second of it. The activities are very fun and many people gather for it. It is so exciting. There is also a cafe where students and parents can rest and buy food and drinks. The food there is awesome. That is the only school I've ever said the food is yummy. The other schools meals are bad and I can only eat when it is sometimes good. But this school is different. I've enjoyed eating the food and I could eat every day because the food is so yummy. The teachers and students are waiting for you! This school is the best!
This is a great school with progressive staff. Most of the staff is based from Canada and America and work hands on with the families. There is an excellent community amongst the staff, parents and students. The school commonly combines both campuses for large community events and provides the kids with numerous extra curricular activities. Great school which offeres AP for students looking to study in North America.
We have kids at ASB Green Valley. This is a great school! We have not complaints! The kids love going to school.
I have been in ASB from the day it started, well it was known as Didyasarin before ASB. All of my siblings have been going to ASB from my older brother who started of in kindergarten in Didyasarin 30 years ago to my youngest cousin who is currently in grade 6 at the Sukhumvit campus. This has been our family school. We have seen the school grow and have grown with it. Education is the same everywhere else, but ASB has a lot more to offer for individual growth. All of us that have graduated from ASB are doing really well.. We may have not been the brightest of the lot but we were certainly provided with opportunities to excel as leaders.V 16 Comments
I went there a few months ago for a school carnival and went on a campus tour as well. I found the atmosphere to be very welcoming and friendly. The other parents I met had positive things to say about the school and it felt like a warm community. Some of the teachers who were working at the carnival were so sweet with my children too!
I've been working on the academic side of the school for several years and I cannot imagine working anywhere else. The school has improved by leaps and bounds during this time and it is only getting better. Our school is certainly not perfect, but I have worked at other schools in the area that do not live up to their reputations. Ascot far exceeds its own reputation, and I am certain that will be reflected in these rankings in due time.
I am fortunate to work with such a dedicated team who like me are committed to helping the school grow and nurturing the development of our students. I would encourage anyone who is looking at international schools in our area to come to Ascot for a visit. I am confident that you will see what sets us apart from other schools.
My daughter is with Ascot now for 4 years and she is very happy. I am happy also with great staff and education she gets. Her english is now great and she has very good social ability. - LadaNice
My kids have always been happy here and I am more than satisfied with the education they receive. Their teachers are committed and I feel comfortable with approaching them with any questions or comments I have about my kids academic performance.V 24 Comments

Berkeley is an amazing school for any child to grow and learn in! Berkeley, has very friendly staff and students, who make you feel welcome within the first weeks of school! We joined Berkeley about a year and a half ago, and feel like we have been here for years! It is a smaller school, with over 500 students which is amazing, as everyone knows each other! We switched to Berkeley and within a few months our family was thriving in their education, with academic challenges for any skill level. Berkeley wants you to be the best version of you, and does not strive for everyone to be the same. We have discovered passions for new sports and every single one of our children plays an instrument, they never have learnt before! Berkeley, also has sports facilities unlike any other school, a 50 meter Olympic sized pool, which is the biggest out of every international school in Bangkok! Our children are now free to do independent and team learning, focussing on skills to help them in the future. ...more
We joined the school three years agao with our three daughters who hardly spoke any English at the time. We hesitated as the school was so new. We could not have made a better choice. Our three girls are very different, but all teachers went above and beyond to give them the support, the academic challenge, the positive encouragement they needed. The teachers are so inspirational, so warmhearted, set the bars high but help each child individually to get there. Our girls thrive, have discovered new passions, become highly academic, ambitious in sports, just wanting to do well in whatever they do. Everything is always about the kids and how to make them reach their personal best.
The school looks nice, just rebuild High School facility, all looks great. And they try to do the best they can. Although I not agree with some things, I think it's the best step I made for my daughter's education to take her out from RAIS. Teachers are young (most of them) what I miss is more language education like Spanish or French. (until high school). Food is excellent, And most of all: My daughter likes to go school every day. Expensive? Yes even with discount, hope it is worth, good education cost money. - WILLY2017
I went to this school to apply for a teaching position, but was very disappointed with how I was treated by the staff. They were polite, but it was much more of a cold reception than I expected from a school still looking for qualified teachers. They gave me an application form to fill out but that was it. No offers to tour the school or meet anyone other than the office staff.
You won't get that kind of reception now! Since the new management and marketing team have come into the school Berkeley are filled with enthusiasm and warmth!V 18 Comments
A school that welcomes and makes both child and parents feel at home. Great location at the Green Valley campus. Takes great care, yet, gives the student the space and opportunity to explore.
I think ASB has great people. They have great management.
In BISAC Asb people have no sportsmanship and respect
SIIS international school could be one of the best schools in Thailand. I personally think that my English and Math has really improved and it is why I am so proud of my self. To be honest, this school has gave me and the other students so many opportunity to be honest with our self and choose our own subjects! And FYI, people are so friendly just like Eco-friendly as well as the teachers!
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.V 27 Comments

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
Nice and friendly staff and teachers...V 4 Comments
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!

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
My children are studying here for the past five years, all three of them. I see their strategic planning and objectives are clear. That is what important for a school. The curriculum and instructional skills of the teachers are up to standards and I can tell that they are improving by sending their teachers for studies at Assumption University in order to get a solid idea of education and continuous improvement for the teachers.
For the end result, the students as the products of the school are graduating as " good human " with ethics in their mind to become a good society the rest of their life. How do we measure this? They have records of many students who have been accepted by top ranking universities in the world. Many students have been awarded scholarship in UK and US universities and many more at ABAC and Chulalongkorn university.
Our 2 children,(boy aged 7, girl aged 12) were at one of the larger international schools in Bangkok, yet, although it had the most amazing facilities, our child's individual sense of character was lost amidst the sheer numbers of students. After a couple of bullying incidents at the school, we made the decision to move them to Garden International School and it's been the best move we as a family have made. The school has a fantastic ethos, the results are outstanding and every child appears to get a really individual catered learning program owing to the small class sizes. In addition the school has a real sense of community and is always reaching out to strengthen bonds with both parents and deserving causes in the area! A lovely place- and if you don't believe me- well, it's your children who will lose out.
I study in this school for 4 years and the teachers have delivered the best education! Year 11 students last year got 100% in most of there subjects...I would recommend your child to come to this school, Very friendly atmosphere... The teachers is Secondary are the best ever because they teach us a lot of stuff, very very funny and very cool. I would rate them 10000000! THE BEST SCHOOL EVER!
Nice & qualified teachers and friendly & serviced minded staff. Very good location.
What an amazing school with fantastic students and teachers that really puts the children first! My son's teacher has been amazing at providing the support that he needs and he is loving his time at Garden International School BangkokV 15 Comments
The schools new principal puts a stronger focus on academics which is welcome. Prem also has a huge university like campus and a great atmosphere among students, teachers and parents.
Excellent International Baccalaureate school located in Chiang Mai.
The most beautiful locations in Thailand. Quality teacher.
Great location, excellent facilitiesV 2 Comments
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!
I found out that IPS is not accredited by any International accreditation agents.
One of the good international schools located in Central Bangkok, providing Quality Affordable International Education. Keep it up.

I'm from this school
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.V 12 Comments
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.
I love how my children are educated at Panyaden. This place builts common sense and life skill. We are so happy to see the academic result that our kids are so competitive to others!
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.
MISB sets prominent standards to provide Holistic education contributing to world-peace and making ideal citizens in a congenial environment to be second to none.V 19 Comments
I vote for the strong academic of Anglo.
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 is really niceV 40 Comments
Very caring and inclusive school. Often accepts students that ISB rejects due to learning difficulties and does its best to provide a balanced education.
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.V 8 Comments
My children studied in BCIS for 2 years now. When they first went to BCIS, there English was terrible but now they are able to read, write, and speak English fluently. They enjoyed going to school to meet their teachers and friends. I am happy that they enjoy being here.
I went to BCIS and it has taught me a lot not only education but also life skills. BCIS has great teachers and family-like atmosphere.
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.
Campus life is great. Friends are nice and they are there for you when you need. Teachers are excellent. Love it here.V 16 Comments
The school has excellent facilities and the students are generally good in the Maths and Science subjects as the school uses the Singapore curriculum that has a good foundation in these subjects. I have heard many people saying that there are problems in school with bad teachers and teaching. However, I must say my son is doing well in secondary school and happy here. I guess the new management that came in has changed a lot of the system to make it better. Good teachers have replaced irresponsible teachers who don't teach and don't mark work. There is also more remedial after school than in the past. The Chinese learning has also improved in a lot and my son can speak many Chinese now.
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 NeedsV 8 Comments
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
It’s a great school and is going to be opening a forest school very soon. It is the only school in Thailand that has achieved the highest Eco award - The Green Award.
Bangkok Prep has some of the most brilliant attitudes towards learning.It is a welcoming and educational schools.Throughout the years Bangkok prep has shown growth and interest towards education.It finds new ways for children to be successful.It helps children understand not just the life values but with it the fundamentals of living.
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!V 20 Comments
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!
The school is a good place to be. People are nice and teachers are hardworking. Campus size and facilities are fair, nothing out of the ordinary. The school is involved in BISAC and other major extra-curricular activities. They also provide a decent AP program and have high acceptance rates in reputable universities both locally and abroad.V 7 Comments
One of the best Schools in Thailand.
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.V 12 Comments
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
Like the second home for my kid
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.V 4 Comments
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.V 4 Comments
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
One of the best international school in Bangkok!
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 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..
I think this school is the best one in Bangkok. Why am I saying this? Because I saw the all attention to student from teachers. They do also extra activities such as barbecue, land trips, sports etc. You can trust them without any hesitation. Management teachers stuff everyone so forthcoming.V 18 Comments
Dedicate teachers my kids love this school and love their teachers.
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.
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.V 32 Comments
I toured their new campus and loved it! It is a new concept that I never thought of as school before. It made me want to go back to school. My daughter is in preschool there.
Magic Years looks like an amazing institution full of unique and innovative learning environments
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.V 5 Comments
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.
Small tight knit community with good proportional representation by both expats and thais alongside other Asian nationalities. very nice rural campus. Shame the curriculum is not broader.V 1 Comment
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.
This school is the best! Their students earned so many A/A* in gcse and a levels! What a good school it is!V 4 Comments
Education here is extremely stressful, but overall it is good.
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,
I have been a parent here for many years and seen the school change a lot in the one year or so since the new Headmaster came. Finally I have a school I am proud of and the school is now unrecognisable from the one before. The new group of teachers are simply fantastic and the quality of my child's education has gone up. The new Headmaster cleared a lot of the old existing teachers out and upset many staff as a result and many parents (me included) were very worried about what was happening, but he has delivered on everything he promised the parents and I now trust that he has my child's and the school's best interests at heart when he makes changes. The facilities in the Primary school are amazing now, small class sizes mean my child is cared for well and looked after by his teacher and his teacher even emails me every week updating me on his progress and is never too busy to speak to me when I'm on campus - something that never happened before with his old teacher and I am sure ...more
Fallen apart since new Head Dan Moore took over. Most of the experienced quality teachers left. They were replaced with young cheap with no real experience here for the holidays and beach life. School numbers have taken a nose dive. He offered important jobs like head of boarding to his friends and that crucial area of the school is now a disaster. Looks like head will not have contract renewed so it might return to how it was a small family school with great experienced teachers. Facilities are reasonable but sports facilities are below standard.
I have send my child to this school since year8 to year11. This school have improved continuously until the new headmaster, Dr.Dan Moore, came. Most of the great teachers left because of this guy. He changes a lot of things in school such as the management style and teaching style. Student and parents rarely saw him in the school. He make his friend to be a head of boarding, which make a lot of teachers pissed. Also, the new art teacher is really bad. She make student don't want to study or even get into the room, she make student hate their favorite subject. The old art teacher was fantastic. She make student know what they are best at. Before this disaster came the boarding house was really warmth and feels like family but when the new head master came the boarding house become a fail for boarders. Many thai teacher quit because of the headmaster's friend which became a head of boarding house, call Mr.William. My son used to enjoy staying at boarding, but not anymore. When my child ...more
I have been a parent at the school since my child started in Year 1. This year the school has improved beyond all recognition. I sent my son to the school before because it was close and I was planning to move when he hit Secondary school. I have changed my plans. I believe that Bromsgrove is now one of the best schools in Thailand. My son has rediscovered his love for learning and has already learnt more this year than I thought possible.V 19 Comments
