Counseling

As an IB World School, we believe that counseling students goes beyond academic and emotional support, and we aim to develop student achievement through incorporating leadership, advocacy, collaboration, equity and access to opportunities. We maintain a safe learning and working environment for all members of the school community, and ensure that students have someone to turn to if they need help. Our professionally licensed school counsellors are always available to address the individual needs of students through prevention and intervention programmes.

 

Our Aims

The NIST counseling team supports, facilitates and encourages student achievement by helping them:

  • Understand and develop a positive self image
  • Implement an effective decision-making process
  • Set individual, realistic, achievable goals
  • Develop effective study skills
  • Show respect and empathy for other cultures, traditions and individuals
  • Maintain healthy relationships with peers and adults
  • Resolve conflicts through communication
  • Increase awareness of the impact of their actions and enrich their community
  • Build resiliency in order to make transitions
  • Gain an understanding of a balanced life

 

Elementary Counseling Programme

NIST’s elementary counsellors provide a comprehensive counseling and guidance program that removes barriers to learning by attending to the personal, social, emotional and developmental needs of all students to ensure we have happy, healthy and successful students.

Services are provided through:

  • Classroom guidance lessons
  • Individual and small group counseling
  • Consultation and collaboration with parents and teachers
  • Parent presentations and workshops
  • Referrals to other school support services or community resources

High School Counseling Programme

 

Download NIST’s academic profile.

In order to prepare both students and parents for the transition to university-level studies, we provide a comprehensive programme that begins in Year 10 and continues throughout high school. This includes individual and group discussions, information sessions, university visits and fairs, and social and emotional counseling. By structuring these activities over the course of four years, we ensure that our graduates leave NIST as mature, conscientious adults.

The IB Mission at NIST Internation School in Bangkok

The IB Mission

The International Baccalaureate does not represent only a curriculum, but also a mission to transform the world through education by fostering thoughtful, principled learners.

An Education that Inspires & Enriches

Though we have cultivated a reputation for excellence in academics, we believe education is inextricably tied to wellbeing, character and action. Through learning comes joy.

A Lasting Impact, Service Learning at NIST International School in Bangkok

A Lasting Impact

Many of our alumni go on to work for NGOs and non-profits, become activists and reformers, and even create their own social enterprises.

Transforming Lives through Service

We believe service must be woven into the fabric of our learning, not as single projects or donations, but rather as the core means through which we translate learning into sustained action.
