VERSO follows the American curriculum that is aligned with New York State Learning standards. We are a pioneering, innovative international school focused on future-ready skills that prepares students for the dynamic and evolving landscape their future will bring.
Our program is interdisciplinary and highly personalized, with a strong emphasis on project-based learning for every student as we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all curriculum.
Specific Advanced Placement (AP) courses are available for students in grades 10-12 who wish to supplement their personalized pathway using university-level material through single subject courses. Six STEAM-based AP courses are currently offered in the 2023-2024 school year including Biology, Computer Science, Statistics, Physics, Pre-Calculus, and 2D Art.
VERSO graduates will be recognized not only for their high levels of academic achievement, but more importantly, for the interpersonal skills and positive mindsets they possess.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

VERSO is more than just another international school. It is a solution.
Across the world, a growing community of changemakers is challenging our fundamental beliefs about the school experience. VERSO is part of this movement. As the pace of change intensifies, our educational systems are failing to evolve quickly enough. We need to act now if we’re going to prepare our young people with the skills and mindsets they will need to confidently navigate their future lives. Traditional schooling wasn’t designed to do this. That’s why we need a new model of school. That’s what VERSO brings to Thailand.
We are a pioneering, innovative American international school focused on future-ready skills that prepares learners for the dynamic evolving landscape their future will bring.
