One of the advantages of international schools is that they favor the children of expats who have to relocate from one country to another.
With these schools, the children readily fit in, because most international schools use a universally accepted curriculum, which makes it easier for the students to adapt to life at international schools.
However, the schools are not only ideal for expats; anyone can take their children there and benefit from the international curriculum. If you are in Bangkok and live near Suvarnabhumi Airport, then here are three international schools for you to consider.
1. Soon-to-open International School
Set to open in August next year (2020), this international school (whose name cannot be revealed yet due to conflict of interest) promises to be the school to prepare your child for the future. The international school will be offering the US curriculum hence setting the trend for other international schools set to open next year.
This soon-to-open international school is one of the best international schools in Bangkok near the airport. When it opens, the school will first take in students in their early years, that is, from two years, up to students in Grade eight. The students in grades ranging from nine to twelve, will join the school the following year (2021).
Built on a 30-acre piece of land, the school is well set to cater for its full capacity of 1800 students. With its futuristic design of Apple-style campus, the school is sure set to be a trendsetter for other schools in the future.
2. Wells International School
