Family Support

Joining a community as diverse and active as NIST can often be intimidating for both parents and children, particularly if they are also new to Bangkok and Thailand. The admissions process does not end upon acceptance to the school. We want all newcomers to feel welcome and comfortable, and to understand what resources are available to help them in the transition.

Additionally, we recognize that in many cases families may only be joining us for a few short years. In such cases we also aim to provide guidance in repatriation, both in transitioning back to a non-IB curriculum, and in addressing the emotional and social effects that often arise for expatriates returning home.

Moving to Bangkok, Thailand

Moving to Bangkok

One of the best things about NIST is its location in Thailand’s capital, one of the most vibrant, eclectic and culturally diverse cities in Southeast Asia. If you’ve just moving to Bangkok, however, we understand that the city can feel a bit overwhelming. NIST employs a full-time international family liaison who helps all families adjust to the school, and particularly those who have relocated from abroad.

Leaving from NIST International School in Bangkok, Thailand

Leaving NIST & Bangkok

As any expatriate child or adult will tell you, transition is part of life in the international community. Yet no matter how many times we move, somehow it is never easy to leave people and places we have grown to love. Here at NIST, we are always sad to see families leave our community and want to do all we can to make the transition a little bit easier from our side.
