At the Australian International School Bangkok, opportunities for your child are endless. The combination of our well-rounded curriculum and world class facilities provide an enriching learning environment for all our students. Our central location in the heart of Bangkok makes our school a quintessential icon within our community.
MID-SIZED SCHOOL COMMUNITY
Our parents often comment on the strong sense of community partnership. This is purposeful and is nurtured through high quality relationships at all levels between the school, the parents and the students, by and frequent communication, and regular celebrations and community events. Mid-size schools have the scale to deliver quality while still retaining the personal touch. Something we see as a critical to successful education outcomes.
Founded on the internationally recognised Australian Curriculum, we extensively incorporate inquiry based, real world, teaching and learning techniques that contribute to deep understanding and purposeful learning. Our educational program is continuously reviewed and evolves through the collaborative efforts of our skilled and passionate educators.
From inception our vision has been a campus located downtown and close to Bangkok’s main thoroughfare, Sukhumvit Road. Both our campuses are ideally situated to serve the children of local and expatriate families living in the nearby areas. Avoiding long commutes to school means your child arrives fresh and attentive to class.
HIGH QUALITY FACILITIES
School facilities and equipment are high quality and constantly being reviewed against the needs of the curriculum and latest teaching techniques. We recognise the importance of physical exercise and team sports that are delivered through the dedicated AISB Sports Centre.
DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION
At AISB creativity, innovation and problem solving is supported through the balanced use of digital technology and a structured combination of science, technology, engineering, arts and math programs (STEAM). AISB provides a thoughtfully designed environment when the sciences, math and arts are taught to students with appropriate use of information technology. This is directly linked to our curriculum and age appropriate outcomes from the Early Years and beyond.
The academic curriculum is complemented by a wide variety of stimulating co-curricular programs which offer a comprehensive range of sporting, cultural, performance-based, visual arts, craft and practical programs. Our chess program is well recognised for its achievements in interschool tournaments as is the unique woodwork program. These programs are available through the Afternoon Activities and Summer School programs. AISB also offer a Summer School program with a broad range of educational, sporting and entertaining activities on offer. All classes from Kindergarten organise educational excursions that support the curriculum and a camping program from one to three days commences in Year 3.
While the language of communication in the school and playground is English, students are encouraged to develop multi-lingual skills. Thai is a compulsory curriculum subject and from Year 2 other languages are taught including French, Mandarin and Japanese, each language being taught by native speakers of these languages.
Families from over 25 different nationalities comprise our school community. This multi-cultural mix is represented in each classroom. It offers unique teaching opportunities exploring cultural diversity and is celebrated by the recognition of many national and cultural events during the year.
In the Early Years setting AISB uses Kimochis program. It is designed to give children the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to recognise and manage their emotions, demonstrate caring and concern for others, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and handle challenging situations constructively.
The BOUNCE BACK! Wellbeing and Resilience program teaches children the skills and attitudes to help them become more resilient by using literature as a starting point for discussions and follow-up activities
