1 International School of NIST
As a current student, I can attest to the fact that they provide us with a wealth of learning possibilities that are unmatched elsewhere. This place has an excellent educational system and playground. Bullies are nonexistent, and the system is not overly rigid. You can notify counselors if you are being bullied.
I studied at NIST for five years, and I had a great time the entire time. I am not the same man I was before. The fact that NIST is neither too huge nor too small is its strongest feature. Like other international schools, it offers pupils the chance to participate in a wide range of ECAs and extracurricular activities, but because of its small size, practically every student has the chance to do so. The school has a wonderful family atmosphere and small class sizes. The instructors are always willing to assist and are all very passionate about what they do. Everything is flawless, and the college counselors are excellent.
2 International School of Wells (WIS)
I’ve attended Wells since kindergarten for the past 14 years, and I adore this institution. Despite being smaller than other Thai schools, it is hard to not know a kid here. It offers a surprisingly large number of internal and external career opportunities for a school that opened only ten years ago. I really do feel like the entire school is my second family. The kids couldn’t be kinder, the events couldn’t be more enjoyable, and the teachers couldn’t be more concerned. I’m grateful to my parents for sending me to Wells—such a wise choice!
Your kids will feel at home at Wells International School because it is a terrific school with wonderful teachers and support staff. This is a good deal for the money, and in my opinion, there’s no reason to send your child to NIST or any other expensive school because they don’t merit the money that the parents fork over.
I looked at the syllabi of a few international schools in Bangkok and found no differences. Wells is probably among the top for primary education and facilities; I’m not sure about the high school grades.
3 Patana School Bangkok (BPS)
Your time in school plays a big role in your life. Starting school at grade one would mean spending fifteen years in school. Your learning style, conduct, and level of focus are all influenced by your upbringing. Patana is a really excellent school. It offers everything. When you see a new building, canteen, or improved equipment for the students to use when you first arrive at school at the beginning of the academic year, you know your money is being well spent. Many are concerned about its size, thinking it is too large, but in my opinion, there is more room and more opportunity. For me, it has always seemed like home.
When it comes to facilities alone, BPS outperforms every other school on this list. This was very obvious when visiting a number of the other listed schools for MUN and sports, and BPS most definitely set the bar in that area. Regarding education, BPS provides an excellent, broad curriculum that aims to create well-rounded people with a wide range of talents that are highly sought after by top colleges across the globe. All things considered, BPS continues to be a very unique school where children learn to be the greatest versions of themselves in a loving atmosphere from the best.
4 School of International Community (ICS)
I truly appreciate the sense of community that exists in our school as a teacher. “Community” is a part of the term for a purpose. I’m appreciative of the chance to work here, and the longer I stay, the more opportunities I have to develop both personally and professionally.
I used to be thinking about changing careers, but after working at ICS for a while, I’ve noticed that my passion for teaching—and especially for having a positive impact on my students’ lives—is growing. This is because of the excellent student body we have here, the bonds I have with my coworkers—some of whom have become some of my best friends—and the encouragement of the amazing administration I work under.
I now intend to remain here for a while, concentrating on providing my kids with the finest educational experience I can in a setting that upholds the basic values that Christian workers hold dear—community, growth, integrity, respect, and love.
5 International Concordian School
The principals, instructors, and entire staff of this institution have demonstrated such incredible dedication. They truly give the pupils everything they have while yet acting politely in Thai. With its architecture, color scheme, and two brand-new buildings dedicated to science, art, and technology, this is the most exquisite school in all of Thailand. Kindly stop by the school so you can see the differences.
To be honest, I think this school is very pleasant. The children pick up Thai ways of showing respect for others. The academics are outstanding, despite the fact that the detention system and the notion that the instructor is always correct, regardless of the circumstance, are not particularly pleasant. I have enjoyed every second of my time here since kindergarten. Both the structure and the library are lovely. This place always accepts love and honesty, as stated in the mission statement.
6 Bangkok’s International School (ISB)
After attending four different schools, ISB is the finest by far. The academics are extremely difficult, and the facilities are of the highest caliber. Everyone here is so distinct. Their histories are diverse, as are the tales they have to share. In addition to being among the smartest and most talented people I’ve ever met, they are also among the most encouraging. There are a lot of students here that are just natural geniuses, and they’ll either make you feel more competitive or simply cause you to doubt yourself. But whatever the case, you can always count on their assistance. I didn’t even regret skipping an entrance exam for a different institution I applied to, and this year I graduated. It’s the oldest and unquestionably the greatest foreign school in Bangkok.
In addition to offering an excellent education, International School Bangkok (ISB) strikes a superb balance between academics and physical education. Students have access to a wealth of resources that help them improve their physical capabilities in any sport. ISB is set in a supportive community where everyone cares for each other day after day. Outside of the classroom, ISB provides a plethora of extracurricular activities for students to participate in, fostering both interpersonal and athletic development.
Teachers at ISB are likewise highly committed to their studies and pupils. Each pupil is valued and is treated fairly and with kindness by them. Throughout my seven years at ISB, I have never felt excluded. The ISB community, parents, teachers, and kids are all incredibly hospitable, and I immediately felt at home when I moved here. With the best possibilities I’ll likely ever have in my life, ISB has become my second home.
Panthers, go! ISB, ISB, ISB!
7 Bangkok’s Harrow International School (HIS)
I’m happy to announce that this is the greatest school as a resident in Harrovia. From Year 1 to Year 8, I attended Harrow. Then, at the start of Year 9, I left Harrow to travel to America. Since I had learned the most of what I needed to know from Harrow, my first year in America was actually rather easy.
Having received As in every class during my eighth and ninth grades, I rose to the top of my class. On the other hand, I was in sets 2 for math and 3 for English in Year 8 at Harrow. This caused me to consider, “Wow, even though I’m not the smartest at Harrow, I’m still a lot smarter than the kids here educationally.”
And I’m still learning things from Harrow years later as a freshman in high school. This demonstrates how much ahead Harrow is in terms of education. Being from Harrow makes me proud, and the town is like a second home to me. I adore every member of the faculty, staff, and teachers; they are all incredibly kind. They give myself and the other Harrovians a lot of support.
In addition, every student there is incredibly cool—that is, kind and welcoming. I don’t believe that any of the students I know are cruel. And all the instructors, staff, faculty, and students I know still chat to me and make me smile when I return to Harrow, even though I have gone.
I regret leaving Harrow because, to be honest, it was the saddest thing I have ever done in my life. I’ve been thinking about returning to Harrow for my sixth form years for the past two years since I left, but my parents won’t let me, which is quite unfortunate.
8 Bangkok’s KIS International School (KIS)
KIS is the best international school here, with the most connections and community. As soon as you walk in, you immediately feel connected, friendly, and part of the community. It may be smaller compared to other schools such as ISB and NIST, but this ‘limit’ of students allows for more intimate and connected student-teacher support relationships.
Parents and students have a close relationship, and teachers are supportive. Parents and kids start activities both within and outside of the classroom. In addition to sports like football (soccer), basketball, swimming, ping pong, badminton, tennis, cricket, and volleyball, we provide after-school groups including Drama Club and Hip Hop Dance.
What makes an excellent international school is defined by KIS. The students are accepting of all countries and cultures, and the loving community is inclusive as well. I know practically every other student in the school and I feel really accepted there.
Because of the relatively small class sizes and the teachers’ ability to mentor students toward success, students can engage in interactive learning with both their classmates and teachers. Because of the success that the IB curriculum, from the Primary Years Program to the Diploma Program, delivers, the graduates are able to attend wonderful colleges all over the world.
Every student who wants to participate is welcome to join one of our fantastic sports teams, which include volleyball, badminton, track & field, basketball, table tennis, swimming, and football (soccer). Other more artistic students can enroll in graphic design courses, media club, the KIS Today club, which allows them to write creative items for the internet, and much more.
Students from all school levels come together for community activities, such as sports day, ultimate house bowl, and weekly entertaining competitions. Knowledge, Inspiration, and Spirit is a true description of KIS International School!
Bangkok’s American School (ASB)
This is a great school with lots of friendly people waiting for you! You are cordially invited for a tour by the principal, staff, and teachers. I’ve been to this school for six years and I have loved each second of it. A large crowd gathers for the enjoyable activities. It’s really thrilling.
Parents and students can relax and purchase food and beverages at the cafe. There is amazing food. I have only ever remarked that the cuisine at this school is delicious. I can only eat when the meals at other schools are occasionally nice because they are usually horrible. However, this school is not like the others. The cuisine is so good that I could eat it every day and have liked it. The students and teachers are anticipating your arrival! The best school is this one!
I have been at ASB since the day it started, when it was known as Didyasarin before becoming ASB. From my older brother who enrolled at Didyasarin in kindergarten thirty years ago to my youngest cousin who is presently enrolled in grade 6 at the Sukhumvit campus, all of my siblings have attended ASB. 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 who have graduated from ASB are doing really well. We may not have been the brightest of the lot, but we were certainly provided with opportunities to excel as leaders.
10 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. However, the student community is not as diverse and stimulating as hearsay would have you believe. 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 advantage 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. I truly believe that out of the international schools available in Bangkok, it is a diamond in the rough.
