The best international Schools in Thailand

Top Nursery, Kindergarten, Primary, Junior and Senior High, College, IB, Christian, US, UK, German, Swiss, Special Needs Education, and Boarding Schools




Welcome to an overview and the maps of top international schools in Bangkok and all Thailand on nursery, primary or secondary level, and day and boarding schools with American, British, German, Swiss or Finnish curriculum. All international schools listed here are private schools (there are no public international schools in Thailand, that's why).

International schools in Bangkok and all Thailand rank on top of the list in terms of quality and child-centered education, which still poses a big challenge to most public schools in both Bangkok and Thailand. Unfortunately, educational quality in this area comes with a price tag. The cheaper alternative might be English-program schools (bilingual or EP schools), if your kid speaks Thai.

We organized this private Web site around the map of Thailand since most parents are not free to choose a job close to the school they want for their children. Usually, you might be looking for the best international school around the place you live - many work and live in Bangkok, others in Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen, Pattaya, on Phuket or Samui, or upcountry Thailand. To make things easier, we also grouped the international schools in and outsides Bangkok in topical groups as requested by parents, such as international boarding schools or Christian schools. If you find something that we can do better or that's missing, please contact us!

The '' project

We are often asked for 'foreign schools' in Bangkok and Thailand. None of the international schools in Bangkok and Thailand is really a 'foreign school' since they are all accredited by the Ministry of Education in Thailand, a legal process that eventually makes them Thai schools. International schools use a foreign curriculum, as opposed to the national Thai curriculum, from the United States, United Kingdom, Singapore, Switzerland, Germany, Australia etc.

In contrast, English-program schools (EP schools) teach the national Thai curriculum in English. However, the curriculum is not the only difference: The national Thai curriculum requires some subjects taught in Thai language, making EP schools effectively bilingual schools. While some English-program schools are private schools, many of them are public schools.
