Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Established in 2005, KPIS is an educational institution dedicated to provide a well-balanced and affordable high quality education for Expatriate and Thai children. The curriculum and standards are patterned after the California Department of Education’s curriculum and standards. KPIS is proud to be one of the youngest schools to be accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Sor Mor Sor.

KPIS prides itself in providing a rich and dynamic learning environment to help its students meet with the ever-changing demands and rapid advances of technology in the 21st century. The school's small class size allows KPIS to provide each student with a ‘Personalized’ education that maximizes learning.

KPIS is confident that this support will lead KPIS students to fulfill their aspirations.

Teaching approach of the school

KPIS has a curriculum basically patterned after the "Curriculum Frameworks and the Content Standards for California Public Schools" developed by the Curriculum Frameworks and Instructional Resource Division of the California Department of Education. This curriculum has been adopted by the California State Board of Education and is widely used in both public and private schools in the state of California, U.S.A. At KPIS students have the advantage of experiencing the best of both Western and Eastern fundamentals by learning the American Curriculum in an Asian Environment.

The main thrust of the curriculum is the acquisition of basic cognitive and social skills needed for success in life and the advanced knowledge and skills that will make the students competitive with graduates of the best educational institutions anywhere in the world. In order to attain this, every student is provided with high quality educational opportunities. At the same time, assessments are made to measure student knowledge pursuant to standards set for each grade level in every subject area.
