At Panyaden International School, we offer students the opportunity to complete their education from Early Years right through to High School graduation.
Our Early Years students enjoy a full-day of discovery with both non-Thai and Thai teachers through songs, literacy and numeracy learning, guided activities, individual interactions and storytelling. We offer children the opportunity to engage in play-based learning in a natural setting. Our learning approach is centred around an indoor-outdoor, free-flow combination of adult-led and child-initiated activities. Our Early Years Program is supported by highly skilled and dedicated English and Thai teachers and teaching assistants who look forward to welcoming and educating your child. We use the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as our core curriculum.
Panyaden International School is a British Curriculum school that offers a high quality learning environment delivered using the International Primary Curriculum from Year 1 to Year 6. The British Curriculum is academically rigorous, highly regarded and remains the most popular choice for international schools worldwide. Using the UK curriculum alongside the IPC and Thai Language and Culture curricula results in a remarkably strong academic curriculum that keeps student-centred learning at the forefront of our approach.
Teachers work together with specialists to make sure all subjects are integrated as much as possible. A typical day includes one hour of English, Thai, Maths, and a Specialist subject with clear connections to the IPC theme. Another hour each day is spent specifically on the theme of the Integrated Unit of Learning. Some themes might have a strong history and geography focus, while others focus more on science. The International Primary Curriculum is a thematic and inquiry based curriculum organised into integrated Units of Learning. The units are in line with the UK curriculum and provide a rigorous focus on learning.
Assessment takes many forms at Panyaden. The end of unit assessments lead to a grade for each subject included in that unit. Day to day learning includes differentiation and personalised feedback. International testing provides a chance to compare our students’ achievement levels to other international schools. Regardless of the type of assessment, we make sure they all provide feedback that enriches learning.
For our Middle Years, one of the main goals of the middle school programme is to provide students with an environment that supports the rapid intellectual and personal changes happening in their lives. Middle school students move through the rapid changes that are part and parcel of their age, including the progression from the self-contained learning environment to the potentially daunting transition to high school (Years 10-13).
Our curriculum, The International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), not only provides a bridge from the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), but also prepares our students for the demands of analysis and synthesis that are inherent in typical high school tasks. In addition, the IMYC programme reinforces our school’s mission to develop resilient, thoughtful and caring individuals through a practical, values-based education that makes them competent global citizens.
Panyaden’s middle school programme emphasises intercultural awareness and communication, and is committed to giving students the academic and personal tools they need to be successful at the secondary level. The school offers students a safe and supportive community for their creative exploration, out-of-the-box thinking and problem-solving. Individualism and self-discovery, the respect of all cultures and the betterment of the school and local community, are all key factors in the school’s ethos.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma programme (IB) is offered for our last 2 years of high school students. The programme results in personal and academic development and, upon successful completion, a globally recognized diploma. Consistent with Panyaden’s core values and strengths, the IB diploma programme aims to develop the thinking and skills of students to become tomorrow’s leaders and change-makers.
The Panyaden Academic Diploma is the culmination of a challenging, university-preparatory programme for students who plan to pursue higher education upon graduation. Courses include a range of offerings including English, modern languages, individuals and societies, sciences, mathematics, art and a variety of electives. A minimum of 24 credits is required to graduate with a Panyaden Academic Diploma. One year of coursework in one subject area is worth one credit. A Panyaden Academic Diploma is a minimum requirement for acceptance to universities globally including the United States and Canada. This diploma will also meet the requirements for acceptance to various higher education courses in Europe and other continents.
