NIST works with Montri Transportation Corporation to provide daily transportation for families who choose to use their services. The school also runs its own shuttle buses for members of the NIST community to and from the Asok BTS Station and the entrance to Sukhumvit 15 throughout the day.


Transportation for Elementary School Students

Early years and year 1 children are collected from the teachers or teacher assistants at the meeting point by the bus monitors. Each monitor has a list of children assigned to his or her bus. The monitor supervises boarding and securing of seatbelts. These vehicles depart promptly from the main parking lot at 2:20 PM. In Years 2 to 6, students are expected to proceed promptly to their buses at 3:00 PM. (Note that secondary buses leave at 3:35 PM.) To ensure the safety of all passengers, each bus monitor has a list of authorized students, which is checked daily.


After-school Buses

Many students remain at the NIST after their classes to participate in after-school activities and Falcons sports. We ensure transportation for every student so that everyone can participate in activities if they so choose. Monitors have a list of students authorized to remain late, and the list is checked prior to departure to make sure that no students are left at the school. The buses leave at 4:10 PM, 5:10 PM, and the latest bus is at 5:45 PM.


Shuttle Bus Service

NIST provides a daily shuttle bus service from Monday to Friday for members of the community, providing transport from Robinson Department Store at Asoke BTS and the Manhattan Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 15 to NIST, and vice versa. The shuttles to Asoke BTS run between 6:30 to 9:00 AM and 2:00 to 6:30 PM (or 7:30 PM by request), and the shuttles to Manhattan Hotel run throughout the day in regular intervals, parents can contact the school to ask for the shuttle to pick up at the Manhattan Hotel.

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."
