    Bi-Lingual Schools in Bangkok

    Do you have a list of recommended bi-lingual schools on this forum? We are looking for recommendations on the best schools in terms of teaching, facilities and cost. Budget will be in the region of 100k a year if possible per child.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Bi-Lingual Schools in Bangkok

    Ok thats a good point and noted.

    However at this point we are trying to find out what schools have a good reputation within our budget. We actually plan to move so that we are close to an area with a few well regarded schools. I guess the staff can change regularly but I assumed there might be a list of schools which in general might be a good bet.

    Note our babies are not at school age yet (born in Thailand) but I am planning ahead to try and get them the best education possible.

    Off to bed so may not login for a while.

    If you are American ISB.

    If you are British, Bangkok Pattana.

    If you want something closer to the diplomatic quarter near Wireless, NIST.

    These are the schools the US, British and most other G7 nations use.

    They are international schools not bi-lingual mate, plus will cost a whole lot more than 100k a year

    Please note, none are Bilingual. Some have Thai or other languages available as foreign languages.

    I thought it was $100K USD. (Actually misread the post.) If you had three or four children, the schools I mentioned would cost about $100,000 in the first year.
    Yeah, All I posted are top level. All cost about 20,000 USD to join and about $10000 per child per year and up.

    Re: Bi-Lingual Schools in Bangkok

    Here's a good site to start your homework:

    School websites, Travelling through Thailand at Pia and Tom's Thailand Travel Guide

    It doesn't specify which schools are bilingual or have EP programs, but most of the links will take you to the school website which (hopefully) will say something about their English programs or lack thereof.

    I just noticed that an EP program that I used to teach at is not listed there, so the list is good, but not entirely complete.

    If it isn't planned that your kid's career will be in Thailand. I would care about the teachers in the school far more than the 'reputation' of it being high.

    Good reputation doesn't always equal good educators.

    Love to be able to afford Bangkok Pattana but its way out of my budget. As stated looking to pay 100k poss up to 200k per year if I have to. I think Bangkok Pattana is close to 1m per year...

    Good reputation amongst you fine teachers it what I was hoping for...

    Re location: we would consider moving to area if there was a good school(s) there...

    I thought I might get a few responses along the lines of;

    "i teach at xxx bi-lingual school, we have xxx British teachers and approx xxx the students are mixed and I can highly recommend it" or wouldn't hesitiate in sending my kids there etc

    If it is purley down the teachers then that changes like the seasons, how can u possibly plan ahead?

    Thanks to the chap who gave the links to the school sites, however thats a big 'ol list!

    is anyone working at the moment in a bi-lingual school (where fees are less than 200k Thai Baht p.a) which in their opinion provides a good education?

    Thanks
