Thailand has a very high ratio of international schools per capita compared to other countries in Asia, providing parents with an immense number of choices. However, most international schools in Bangkok offer only British or American curricula, with few other options available. NIST is one of only three full IB international schools, and the only one with not-for-profit status and a central campus in the heart of the city.
The IB philosophy permeates our school, and our values of integrity, caring, community and growth are central to our learning and actions. To inspire, empower and enrich our students, we diligently work to provide unique learning opportunities that you may not find at other international schools in Bangkok.
What Does NIST Offer that Other International Schools in Bangkok Do Not?
In addition to activities that encourage and challenge, such as Action Week and Challenge by Choice, NIST partners with elite organizations around the globe to offer first-class programmes and resources. This includes partnerships with Chelsea Football Club, Global Goals World Cup and UN Development Programme, and the Global Citizen Diploma. In 2018 we will be partnering with Harvard Graduate School of Education to conduct on-site research through Project Zero.
While there are many international schools in Bangkok, few can offer the expansive facilities, resources and programmes available at NIST while also maintaining a strong, caring community.
