Surat Thani International School

California State Curriculum, preK - grade 2 (ages 2 to 7/8)




Surat Thani International School (STIS) is Surat Thani’s first international school. We are proud to offer an international curriculum to our students. We aim to provide the best education possible for your children through modern facilities, advanced educational methods, and first-class educational materials. Our vision is to create an American school in Surat Thani that incorporates Thai language and culture.

We will be using the California Department of Education State Curriculum for all lessons (except Thai language). The California State Curriculum is used by many international schools around the world. It encompasses the U.S. Common Core State Standards for education. The goal of the California Curriculum is to provide clear learning objectives for students that will help them prepare to enter universities where English is the language of instruction.

Our Kindergarten program (K1 through K3) aims to immerse the student in English. Students will learn English in a natural way, identical to a native English speaker, and will subsequently have a much higher level of fluency that is difficult to attain later on. The core curriculum focuses on English Language Arts, Mathematics and Science. Additionally, we focus on developing the student’s creative and cognitive abilities. Physical Education, Arts, and Thai Language (K3) are also included. The curriculum provides children with a student centered learning environment that encourages and supports their growth in the following objectives.

Our Primary School program builds on the advances made by students in our Kindergarten Program. Students continue to be immersed and learn with the same levels of progress as native English speakers in increasing standards and student literacy. The core subjects are Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies. Additionally, Art, Music, and Physical Education are elements of the curriculum. Students also study Thai Language and Culture at least 5 hours per week.
