Language support for students not fluent in English

Regent's International School, Bangkok has an extensive English Language Development (ELD) programme which runs throughout the whole school catering too all age groups. Our English Language Development programme is taught by fully dedicated specialist English teachers who accelerate their language acquisition until they are ready to enter mainstream classes. What this means is assigned time in ELD classes that focus solely on this aim and purpose.

Use of technology in the classroom

The use of technology is encouraged throughout the school. In Secondary, students are required to bring their devices (iPad or laptops) to collaborate via Google Classrooms in and out of class. At Regent's we use Google Apps for Education as our platform for staff and students. This will mean students can be in touch with their school work wherever they are, no need for thumb drives – their work will always be secure and available from the cloud. They will also have a school email address which gives them more security in communication with others in the school community.
In Primary in September 2013 we launched The Regent International School’s BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) initiative in Year 6. In August 2014 we extended BYOD to Year 5 with great success. At The Regent’s we strive to make learning as meaningful as possible for our students and by integrating technology into the classroom we are meeting the needs of learners in this digital age. We have also installed Apple TV in the Year 5 and 6 classrooms to further enhance the use of iPads by allowing them to connect wirelessly to the projector, enabling learning to be shared from any iPad. We have also installed a new wireless printer so the students can print their work. The school's very own VLE (virtual learning environment) is a virtual hub accessed and used by staff and students to aid sharing content and information.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

As a school we're proud of our international community that treats everyone that comes through its doors as an individual. Though we do very well academically and our graduates secure places at some of the top universities in the world including Cambridge and Cornell, we understand that this is not the be all and end all. This means being a "family" and not a "factory" as we provide bespoke quality education that brings out the best in every child. As a medium size school its easy to achieve this and small class sizes allows each student to get the attention and support they deserve.
The list of extracurricular activities is extensive allowing students to constantly try new things and develop their passions - we acknowledge that everyone has their own pathways and encourage students to be the best they can in whatever they choose to focus on. These methods of encouragement, support and understanding create a happy community where the relationships and level of care between staff and students always exceed expectation.
We are also both a day and boarding school catering to a large age range - from 3-18.

Teaching approach of the school

As the only Round Square school in the city the school's teaching approach differs slightly to the other international schools in the region. Round Square is an organisation of over 170 schools worldwide who share a belief in their approach to education. Round Square schools are connected by their shared ethos that embeds Internationalism, Democracy, Environmental stewardship, Adventure, Leadership and Service to others throughout everything that we do. Together these ‘pillars’ forms what is more commonly known as the acronym ‘IDEALS’.
Thus the school promises to:
To guide students into becoming well-rounded, informed, responsible, principled and confident global citizens.
To build a mutually supportive network that shares resources, ideas, methods, experience and opportunities, locally, regionally and internationally.
To develop international understanding, empathy and tolerance for all cultures; democratic governance and justice; environmental stewardship; adventure, self-discovery and courage; leadership, compassion and service to others.
