Concordian International School is a Nursery to Grade 12 IB World School located in Bangkaew, Samutprakarn, Thailand; which is around 10 minutes to central Bangkok or just 15 minutes away from Suvarnnabhumi International Airport. It is one of only four IB Schools in Thailand offering the full range of IB programs – PYP, MYP, and DP.

Teaching approach of the school

Concordian International School works within the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework to deliver rigorous and challenging programs. The course of study is drawn from both the IB and standards developed from around the world.

Concordian believes that an immersion approach develops language proficiency as well as intercultural awareness, critical thinking and problem solving. Students completing the Primary Years immersion program enter the Middle Years fluent in two to three languages and with an active appreciation of the world around them.

English is the primary language of instruction from Grades 5 to 12. Mandarin and Thai are taught as world languages. Other languages such as French and Spanish are offered in secondary school.

Students with no previous background in Chinese may enter at any grade level. To assist language development we offer additional support in English, Chinese and Thai. Our library features a large collection of print and audio-visual materials in all target languages, and a welcoming atmosphere that promotes a love of reading among students and parents alike.
