Great link: International schools in Phuket, Thailand…your future life on the beach!

The Asia Direct website (http://www.topschools.hk/) has a good list of information about a variety of different kinds of schools in Phuket:

• Bilingual Preschool and International Nurseries
• International Schools: Primary and Secondary Schools
• Thai schools that offer English and Bilingual programmes
• Thai University offering English-and-Asian-Languages Programme

There are many international educators interested in working at these schools.  There are around 13 international schools of these types of schools listed on the Top Schools website.  Some of the international schools listed on their website are: QSI International School of Phuket, Phuket International AcademyBritish International School (BIS) Phuket, etc…

Highlighted sections from their website:

“Quality Schools International (QSI) was founded in order to provide a quality education in the English language for expatriates’ children living in the international community. The school accepts students from nursery to grade 12 and follows an American curriculum. Locals who want their children to be educated in English are also accepted.

The school recognizes that most of the students might only be enrolled for only two or three years and have diverse educational backgrounds. QSI has 33 schools in 25 countries. In Phuket, the school has more than 100 students. Thai is taught both as a native and a non-native language.”

“The Phuket International Academy Day School (PIADS), a non-profit organization, brings a fresh and unique approach to education. It is aspiring to implement all three programmes of the International Baccalaureate (IB) and presently has candidate status for the IB Primary Years Programme, and is applying for candidate status for the IB Middle Years Programme.

The choice of this curriculum integrates well with the overall philosophy of the school, and will allow mobile families to easily locate to other countries and have continuity in their child’s education. Teachers have been recruited internationally for their qualifications and experience. The school caters to students aged three years (kindergarten) to 15 years (grade 8/9) from international and Thai communities. PIADS also has a nursery for children aged from 18 months.”

“The British International School (BIS) is an English medium, co-educational, day and boarding school, set within an extensive purpose-built campus. The 39-acre campus houses world-class facilities which enable students to excel at sports, performance arts as well as in their academic studies.

The school was established in 1996 and is home to some 850 students from 18 months to 18 years of age. The student population has over 36 different nationalities represented and is divided into two educational sections; the Primary and Secondary School.

The school’s curriculum is based on the English GCSE and IGCSE programmes which prepare students for entry to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB Diploma), an international university entrance qualification, recognised by higher educational institutions in over 100 countries.”
