Academics

NIST, a leading IB school, fosters excellence and global citizenship through its programs and curriculum integration

Over the past three decades, NIST has cultivated a reputation for academic excellence.

As the first full International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Thailand, NIST offers the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP), as well as the opportunity to earn a NIST Diploma. Using the frameworks and philosophical approaches of the IB, NIST has articulated a concept-based curriculum that specifies the knowledge, skills and understanding at each year level. In addition, the curriculum connects the intended learning goals with the NIST Attributes and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These critical elements of a well-rounded education are not left to chance but are galvanised within our curriculum. 

NIST is also a member of an exclusive group of schools offering the Global Citizenship Diploma (GCD) in addition to our International Baccalaureate Diploma. The GCD is available to all secondary students in Years 10-13 and acknowledges experiences and growth in areas outside the classroom that have direct links to the development of global citizenship.
