Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

East-West International School, established in 2006, is a bilingual international school accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). We are centrally located in BKK3. We offer classes from Nursery all the way to Grade 12, where students can study the Khmer national curriculum approved by the MOEYS, the International Primary Curriculum, as well as a full Cambridge program of IGCSE, AS and A level classes in Secondary. Combined with our extensive extra-curricular program (sporting, academic and cultural), we are helping develop global citizens ready to make a positive impact on the world.

Teaching approach of the school

At East-West, a teacher has the opportunity to not only make a difference in a school, but in a country.

Our school philosophy is simple: We hire teachers who care. We employ teachers who are willing to go above and beyond and do more to make a positive impact on the lives of our students and our school community.

At East-West, we are like a family. Many of our staff and students have been part of the school for more than ten years. We have a strong culture of caring and positive relationships between all members of the school community. It is a true honor and privilege to work here.

Our students want to learn and enjoy being at school. Major discipline problems are rare. Teachers enjoy teaching because they are given the freedom to teach to their strengths.

We are looking for dynamic educators who truly care and want to make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of East-West students.

If you want to love your job and engage with students in significant ways, East-West is the place to be.
