Use of technology in the classroom

In ISB School, technology and information literacy are integrated into units of study and into everyday classroom lessons. Teachers and students have access to a library media lab and mobile laptop/iPad carts with wireless internet connection. Students and teachers utilize a wide array of software and digital peripherals, which complement our hardware resources. Skills are taught independently and are integrated into learning throughout each unit of study.
A Technology Learning Coach, and a Teacher Librarian provide a variety of teacher and student learning support with the integration of ideas, curricular links, resources, in-class support and specific professional development opportunities. This integrated model sees technology as a tool to enhance teaching and learning, and not as a discrete subject to be taught once a cycle.

Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

ISB provides support for a managed number of students with mild to moderate learning needs, and are in the early stages of planning a program for students with intensive needs (e.g. developmental and intellectual disabilities).

ISB is able to meet with needs of most students in the regular classroom with differentiated instruction through accommodations and consultation. Some students may receive additional support in class through

small group instruction,
point-of-performance support or
Students who require a higher level of support may attend a small group learning support class to work on the individualized learning goals on their Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Widely recognized as one of the premier international schools in the world, International School Bangkok (ISB) has been providing quality education since 1951 to expatriates representing more than 60 countries.

Conveniently located just outside the heart of the city, ISB’s 15 hectare campus is nestled in a beautiful community called Nichada Thani where children can walk or ride their bicycle to school along tree-lined paths.

Teaching approach of the school

ISB’s believes learning is a process in which each student discovers and constructs meaning from information and experience. The individual needs, background, and development level of each student serve as the starting point for all school learning activities. In the classroom, the teacher functions more in a guiding, supportive role than in the role of the disseminator of information. Opportunities for student choice, self-direction, and responsibility are plentiful. Students learn interpersonal skills and the importance of community; they are valued and accepted, and, in return, learn to value and accept others. Assessment is formative, and, along with appraisal by the teacher, includes self and peer evaluation. Positive feedback and encouragement are essential components of all Middle School assessment. We believe that this student-centered approach is the best way to fulfill ISB’s Mission to inspire students to:

Achieve their academic potential
Be passionate, reflective learners,
Become caring, global citizens
Lead healthy, active, balanced lives
