    I used to work for their other branch near Kaset along Vibhavadi Rangsit Road, not far from St. Michaelsí International School.


    Ramkhamhaeng Advent International School (RAIS) is a privately-owned Christian school serving students from Daycare to Grade 12 in the greater Bangkok area. It is operated by the G.J. Education Company Ltd.


    The schools are mostly staffed by teachers from the Philippines. The students have a pretty good command of English, but end up being like spoiled rich brats when they get to high school level. During lunch time, most of the students and staff went to lunch which was provided by the school. Itís vegetarian, and they use that funky Veggie Baloney as a meat substitute. Only thing, if you have a weak stomach, youíll have Diarrheafor a few days up to one week. Some teachers end up running out of class to the toilet from time to time.
    One of the major problems they have. If you are not white, but Indian or African American or African, they will pull you into the office and humiliate you and give you your walking papers. Iíve seen it done to a few really outstanding and qualified teachers. Though Pilipino are ok.



    All students from Grade 1 to high school Students are indoctrinate in 7th Day Advent beliefs.



    Most of the graduating students end up going to some of the top rated universities in Thailand.



    I did meet the son of owner of the school. Didn't care for his attitude.

    Indoctrination. Both of the are at it. The 7th Day stuff is strong. NIVA is the same. Cheap, reasonable education (reasonable, not great) but don't send your kids unless you want them to be indoctrinated into 7th Day tosh (well, tosh for me, but each to their own....).

    Thanks everybody for your answers and I know that they are not from Top tier schools but if they give reasonable education with affordable tuition fees then it is ok as I can't afford the top tier international school and I think the mentioned school are better than to send my kid to Thai Bilingual school??

    Personally I wouldn't even think of any of the mentioned institutions.

    Indoctrination rather than education is the norm in all of them.

    if you are unable or unwilling to pay for a decent education for your child why not consider a decent Thai school and you make sure that English is used at all times at home ?

    Parental duty is an ongoing matter, by following the road I suggest you should with a little effort be able to achieve a decent level of education for your child. as I have said, ''being a parent is a full time position,''

    You don't , nor should you need to farm your kids out to a situation you may want without first considering what may be best for your child

    Remember. ''An education is the greatest gift after love that you can give to your child.''
    'Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by mainstream media,
    which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.'
