NIPTA

At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.

Jane D. Hull

The NIST International School Parent-Teacher Association (NIPTA) is a diverse volunteer organization with a clear mission to inspire, empower and enrich NIST’s diverse community in ways that further the vision of the school. Comprising parents from differing cultures and backgrounds, NIPTA works closely with school leaders and staff in supporting the growth and success of every child. The group thus strives to:

  • Enhance parental involvement in a range of school events and opportunities
  • Strengthen the relationships among parents, students, staff, leadership and the board, as well as with the broader community in which we live
  • Facilitate the flow of information between the parents and NIST administration

NIPTA also actively supports the NIST community by organizing a variety of social and fundraising events and activities. It welcomes families who are new to NIST and sponsors cultural festivals, Explore Bangkok Tours, and parental networking events. NIPTA also promotes NIST Falcon sports teams, and provides assistance for musical and theatrical performances.

Through NIPTA, parents have the opportunity to play an active role in their children’s education, strengthening the relationship and helping our community thrive.

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.
The NIST Falcons

The NIST Falcons

Our Falcons athletes participate in over a dozen competitive sports, from basketball and volleyball to gymnastics and fencing, with other schools around Bangkok and Southeast Asia.

Opportunities beyond the Classroom

We grow when pushed beyond our perceived limits. The NIST Activities Programme offers students the opportunity to challenge themselves through more than 300 activities, including sports, the arts, technology and more.

We believe in the power of education

International & Inclusive

As one of the most diverse international schools in Thailand, we seek to be inclusive and value difference as a catalyst for individual and collective growth.

A Vibrant Community Built on Shared Values

"Respectful, healthy, ethical relationships and interactions create a true sense of community at NIST."
(2018 NEASC Accreditation Report)
