    Up to date information on International Schools in Bangkok

    So the little one is 2 and a bit and I am starting to look at what to do with him education wise. I would like him to go to an international school is possible and wondered if anyone on here sent their kids to one. If they do, which one did they choose.

    I quite like the look of Bangkok International Prep, Harrow is more expensive (but they do have a 1st language scholarship if your child is a native speaker of English) and St Stephen's seems to be popular with Thai parents in my area but it doesn't seem to be international (most of the kids seem to be Thai) but it is a lot cheaper.

    Any advice? Comments? Suggestions?

    The first language discount I was offered at Harrow was 10%. Got them up to 30, but for twins it was still out of my budget. I have had a bad experience with a middle tier international school.

    30% off the price would make it expensive but possible.

    Harrow even with a 30% discount would be 377,286 per year
    Bangkok International Prep is 330,000 per year
    St Stephen's is about 254,000 per year

    This is all for year one.

    Might have to open my own school to save the money!!

    I think Harrow is 90% Thai students, or at least Thai students are a overwhelming majority there.

    Don't know if it's true but I was told a few years back that Garden International in Rayong gives a pretty good discount if the student is 100% Thai and can pass the entrance exam.

    I was offered a position at Saint John Mary roughly about the time I decided to bail out of Thailand. They didn't want to give me a discount for my Thai step-daughter and wanted to lowball me on the salary.

    It follows a curriculum different to that of its host country so in that respect..........it is an international school.

    Which campus you looked at? Bangkok or Khao Yai?

    The Bangkok Campus.

    I know quite few kids where I live who study there and their level of English is terrible.
