Not perhaps initially an obvious destination for the best education providers, but the truth is Thailand is home to some excellent International Schools. And almost certainly the best value in the Asia region as well. Here we highlight some of those, which can be considered 'The Best'.
THE REGENT'S SCHOOL, THAILAND
The Regent's School (Pattaya and Bangkok) is a fully accredited British International school. We offer IGCSE, A level and IB Diploma programme. We are a member of the prestigious Round Square Association, with HM King Constantine as President and HRH Prince Andrew as Director (www.roundsquare.org). There are over 42 nationalities at the two main campuses and 80% of our Year 12 and 13 are foreign students, mainly Europeans. Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford, MIT, National University of Singapore and Seoul National University, are among the leading universities which have offered places and scholarships to our recent graduates. Boarding houses at both campuses are safe and modern, and have networked IT facilities. All teachers are native English speakers and 86% of them are British. There is a professional and effective pastoral system with zero tolerance on drugs and alcohol. The Chairman, Dr. Virachai Techavijit was recently invited to lecture at Oxford University.
