Hello, I am looking for a bi-lingual school for my two (American) teenagers. They have been internet and privately schooled for the past year, but they now need a social life that school can provide. International schools are unreasonably priced, starting at $24,000 US (I can send them to a good University back in the US for that amount). If anyone has any information on schools in Bangkok please contact me. We are also looking for some clubs and activities for them. Thank you
Good luck. My kids are Thai/American but native speakers. I cant find a nice enough Bilingual school for them here as they all cater to the Thais so the curriculum is too watered down. I am going back after more than 20 years here because of this problem. They will get little to no Geography, World History, or Literature.
Good luck and perhaps you will hear something good.

(minus SISSSSSTER REEEEEGINA! )
not on your life. The Thai program is so so, and I just dont like the social scene either. Hell we have one at the uni, but the wife vetoes it. In reality she is right.
The other problem in the Bingual is how will the OP's kids study in Thai?
theres a good school here in plok....some serious students coming out of it...but thats a ways away from bkk

Aging one correct.
The curriculum is somewhat diluted in Bi-lingual programmes,also as raised the understanding of Thai in the classroom for the mandatory Thai lessons in assorted subjects.However there may be another problem if the rule still stands regarding the admittance on a non Thai into a Thai school,again I am not clear if that rule applies to Bi-lingual schools or not.That particular ruling was the reason that international schools actually started in Thailand if my source of information is to be believed.
The best answer is either to find a decent reasonable priced international school (one with only native speakers as the teaching staff) they are around.Then you can discuss the possibility of a monthly payment system,a lot of schools will help you if you ask.
If that fails,well the other option is to pursue the course of action you have followed to date or send the children back to the States possibly.

Better still would be to check back after you make a post.
If I stay I will be doing the EP route.
how old are they? My school is about 3.5k USD a year. Quite rigorous and the students can all communicate in English. They are mostly Thai, but a few mixes...
