First and foremost, thank you for considering NIST as an option for your child. The Bangkok international school community is very large, and choosing a school is one of the most difficult decisions a parent can make, leading to questions, worry and hope. We know that your child’s education is of the utmost importance to you, and we look forward to showing you what NIST has to offer.

While many international schools in Thailand are available to families, we believe that we can provide a unique learning environment for all of our students. We want to develop learners who are inquisitive, bold explorers, willing to grow through both their successes and failures. We want to create dreamers who believe in challenging the impossible and transforming the world through principled, compassionate action.

Every child is unique, which in turn means every family looks at schools from a different perspective. Some want academic rigor and challenging learning opportunities, while others seek a caring environment that provides a sense of security and allows children to grow and thrive at their own pace. We also understand that other factors may play an important part in your decision, from location and fees to culture and diversity.

We believe that providing you with clear, comprehensive information about our community will help you make the best decision for your child.
