“Schools are about people, and great schools attract the very best teachers. When combined with a rigorous curriculum that pushes students to think critically, collaborate with peers, challenge assumptions and develop integrity, students flourish. “


 

Welcome to the NIST website and to the NIST community. We have designed this site to assist you in finding out about the wonderful learning opportunities we offer, as well as to provide you with the information you will require to make an informed choice about selecting the right school for your child’s education. While NIST has grown over the years, it still has a family-like atmosphere. There is a warm and welcoming feeling that comes across when you walk around the campus: it is a community school. Should you require further information, or have specific questions about NIST, we would encourage you to make contact us or visit.

When describing schools there is a tendency for people to refer to the buildings and facilities. While NIST is fortunate to have remarkable facilities for a school located in the heart of Bangkok, it is not these alone which make it an outstanding hub for learning. Schools are about people, and great schools attract the very best teachers. When combined with a rigorous curriculum that pushes students to think critically, collaborate with peers, challenge assumptions and develop integrity, students flourish. Furthermore, learning is not just limited to the classroom. A leading school must also consider the learning and social opportunities that exist beyond the classroom. In short, when schools combine the best teachers with an innovative and responsive programme in a caring learning environment, students are driven to achieve. This would be the best way to describe NIST.

As we plan for the future, our conversations are always focused on the qualities we hope to see in our students when they graduate. We believe that education has a moral purpose and is ultimately focused on enhancing society. Beyond helping students to achieve excellence as learners, we want them to have access to the world’s leading universities and undergraduate programmes, as well as have the skills and knowledge to contribute to society and enrich lives. In order to be achieve this, our students are exposed to a wide range of experiences and opportunities through their time in the school, as this website will illustrate.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. I believe that one thing that has defined NIST throughout its existence is a desire to continue to develop and never to be complacent. Just as we expect our individual students to learn and grow and pursue excellence on a daily basis, it is our job as educators to make the commitment to developing NIST and building upon our success. While a large number of our families will initially consider NIST due to its excellent location and reputation, we hope that the pivotal factor will be because of our mission, programme and values as a community.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about NIST. We hope to see you on campus in the near future.
