Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

BASIS International School Bangkok (BISB) is a part of the worldwide BASIS Curriculum Schools Network, America's most successful academic network. BASIS Curriculum Schools provides a course of study that is connected from the student’s academic start in pre-school through to senior projects in the student’s final year. The curriculum is carefully calibrated so that in every discipline and at every grade level, students are appropriately challenged—each year builds as a preparation for challenges to come.

Outperforming peers across the globe, according to the 2017 Times Higher Education World University Ranking, 28% of 2017 BASIS Diploma graduates were accepted to at least one of the top 25 colleges and universities in the world. Excelling in college entrance exams, the average BASIS Curriculum School graduate scored SAT results of 1,395 from a total 1,600 in the 2017 examination year.

Residing on 22 rai of land (8.5 acres), BISB is at a prime location adjacent to Central Rama 2 and Central Park, 300 meters from Rama 2 Road. BISB's campus is built with cutting edge, modern facilities that are specifically designed to work optimally with the BASIS Curriculum. In addition to the academic classrooms, facilities include a 25m competition pool, a 1600 sqm indoor convertable gym, a design kitchen with 3-D printing/woodshop/engineering/robotic rooms, library and co-working space, cafeteria, Black Box Theater, and more.

Teaching approach of the school

BISB integrates Thai Language and Culture into the Curriculum on a daily basis from PreK-12 preparing students for full fluency and a deep understanding of the Thai culture. We also offer a specialized optional Chinese Language Program starting from Grade 1 that will prepare students for full fluency and in high school to take the AP Chinese exam.

BISB is special and unique because it is going to marry the thoughts and ideas from Thai culture directly with our BASIS curriculum. The idea is to establish what we call “locally rooted and globally connected” educational methodologies. Our mission is to raise the standards of Thai education to the highest international levels so that our students are prepared to be participants, not spectators, in the 21st century world of commerce and innovation.
