Finding International School for Thai-Western Children in Thailand

Searching for the right international school for Thai-western kids is rarely easy. You will be flooded with information on the internet about programs and policies but you really still need to personally visit more than one school and gather more reliable information about the school before making decisions. After all, few things are more important for your child than their education.

Quality international schools can be costly in Thailand as can often be at par with other leading international schools in the world. Normally, English language is the medium of instruction but some schools also offer other language classes like German, Mandarin or Nihongo.

There are 37 international schools registered with the Association of International Schools. Pursuant to Thai law, international schools must be accredited by the Thai Ministry of Education.

However, international schools can also be accredited by the European Council of International Schools but if you are considering an American school for your children, American schools should be accredited by one of four national accredited agencies such as the Western Association of Schools and Colleges or the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges so that credits and certificates can be transferred to your child in the United States.

International schools following the British or Australian system do not always apply for accreditation if they offer internationally recognized examinations, such as the International Baccalaureate or the International General Certificate of Education (IGCE).
