Learning Beyond the Classroom
Our core learning programme provides students with an exceptional educational experience that is both challenging and engaging, and also reflective of the diversity of experience, cultures and passions within our community. But we also believe challenging students to push their own thinking and abilities plays a crucial role in fostering resilience and creativity. The expansive NIST Extra-curricular Activities Programme offers a choice of more than 300 options throughout the school year. With more activities available to them than at almost any other international school in Bangkok, students can develop new interests across a range of areas, from the performing and visual arts to STEM and languages to health and sports.
As a founding member of the Southeast Asia Student Activity Conference (SEASAC) and Bangkok Metropolitan Athletic Conference (BMAC), we have long taken a lead in building competitive athletics opportunities for international schools in Bangkok and across Southeast Asia. Over a dozen sports are offered to students, ranging from golf and badminton to rugby and softball. Additionally, five are structured in an academy format to provide a higher level of year-round training to aspiring athletes: the Falcons Fencing Academy, Falcons Football Academy, Falcons Gymnastics Academy, Falcons Swimming Academy and Falcons Tennis Academy.
While music and performing arts are already included in the curriculum, NIST Music Academy offers further opportunities for music enrichment. In small group or individual lessons, students can study 13 different instruments, as well as vocal training, music theory and music composition. All available lessons are delivered by highly qualified professional musicians, and students participate in community performances and recitals to build confidence. Should any aspiring musician seek to pursue a more in-depth course of study, NIST is one of the few international schools in Bangkok to offer preparation for the ABRSM and Trinity Rock & Pop examinations.
