Enrollment at NIST International School (“the School”) in Bangkok is contingent on signed agreement to our conditions of acceptance:
I agree to my child participating in any educational activities arranged by the School, including any required field trips in or outside of Bangkok. In the event of injury to my child or damage to the property of my child while they are participating in such activities, while on the School premises, or while being transported to or from the School, I will not hold the School or any member of the School staff responsible. The School will, in the event of an emergency, make every effort to contact the parents. If this is not possible, the child will be taken either to their family doctor, or to a suitable hospital for treatment.
B. Annual Fee Review
NIST is a not-for-profit organization, and the NIST Executive School Board reserves the right to set the fee schedule each year to cover anticipated costs. When planning for their child’s education, parents are advised to allow for future adjustments in the fee structure.
C. Education Needs
It is understood that continued enrollment in the School will be in doubt in instances where the further educational opportunities offered by the school would not meet the specific needs of the student.
D. Drug Policy
I understand that NIST is a drug-free school, and I will notify the school if my child has been, or is, involved in substance abuse. NIST takes incidents of substance use or abuse seriously. In order to maintain a drug-free environment, the School may require a student to undergo a drug test at any time. Any such test is administered in accordance with the School’s drug policy, and results are kept confidential.
E. Online Guidelines

Such policies may include (without limitation) suspension and/or expulsion from NIST for repeated and/or serious offenses which include (but are not limited to) immoral acts, and behavior that does or is reasonably likely to result in harm to other students or my child.
H. Other Terms
- The school reserves the right to apply, without notice, any and all funds received and any deposit or fees in settlement of any outstanding or arrears owed to the school, even if such funds or fees are identified by the payer or Parent for another invoice. In the event that the deposit is used, the Parent shall be required to promptly reimburse the school within three business days in an amount equal to the amount set off.
