Outstanding Teaching:

Image of International school in Bangkok, ThailandAt ISB, educators - both administrators and teachers - are learners that work in a dynamic collaborative environment for the purpose of improving student learning. In our professional community, learning from one another, sharing best practices, and continually striving for excellence are the norm.

We believe that the growth and development of our educators is as important as the growth of our students. Educators collaborate on the establishment of organizational and personal goals that support the school’s Vision. These goals are designed to inspire our teachers to achieve high levels of excellence. ISB dedicates significant resources to supporting teachers in reaching their goals. In addition to numerous professional development experiences such as conferences, advanced degrees and workshops, our teachers have growth opportunities embedded into the fabric of each school day. They routinely gather to review student work, reassess curriculum, and make shared decisions about student learning. Successful integration of these practices enriches both their performance and the performance of their students.

Our Definition of Learning:

Learning is the primary focus of our school and we recognize learning as a life-long adventure. We value meaningful learning where students construct enduring understanding by developing and applying knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Increased understanding is evidenced by students who:

- Explain its relevance
- Describe how it connects to or conflicts with prior learning
- Communicate it effectively to others
- Generalize and apply it effectively to new situations
- Reflect critically on their own and other’s learning
- Ask questions to extend learning
- Create meaningful solutions

Guiding Principles:

Photos of International School Bangkok (ISB)As a result of the educational experience at ISB, students receive transportable gifts of intellectual development, metacognition and cross-cultural understanding. Although these gifts have considerable immediate benefit, they also appreciate in value with the passage of time. For many, the gifts are most fully realized and appreciated in adulthood.

These gifts are transportable because, in a very practical way, they allow students to move seamlessly from this school to schools and universities of choice throughout the world. With the opportunity to experience outstanding teaching that challenges, supports and nurtures, students become experts in their own learning. Having learned how to learn, they are adaptable and able to maximize their learning in a variety of settings.

Extra-Curricular Activities:

Our students and parents can choose from a wide array of activities at ISB and in the surrounding community. Some of the activities that take place on our campus for the community are:

Boy Scouts/Cub Scouts
Girl Guides
Bangkok Baseball/Softball Association
Bangkok Youth Basketball League
North Bangkok Soccer/Football League
Junior Golf
Panther Swim Club
ShaoLin Kung Fu
Interscholastic Sports League
Dance Program of Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Modern
Summer School
Adult Education Classes

Besides access to superb ISB facilities, this area is a convenient location for shopping, golf, movie theatres, fitness centers, country clubs, bowling, beauty salons, restaurants, health/dental care, preschools, swimming pools, tailors, spas, and many other amenities.

Our neighborhood:

ISB chose to relocate to its current campus within Nichada Thani to be part of the first planned international community in Thailand. Postioned just outside the heart of the city, ISB community members have easy access to the expressway for a 30-minute trip downtown.

By building in the suburbs, ISB is away from the downtown noise and air pollution. Children in the neighborhood can walk or ride their bikes to school, and all around the numerous complexes that comprise Nichada. Each mini neighborhood has its own security guards, in addition to the security guards that are stationed at the main gates, and the police substation that stands at the entrance of the community.

Neighborhood volunteers organize activities such as newcomers' coffees, monthly speakers, sightseeing trips, happy hours, charity sponsorship, and great shopping excursions in addition to putting out a free monthly newsletter and neighborhood guide.

Thailand:

On May 11, 1949, a royal proclamation changed the name of Siam to Thailand, which means Land of the Free. Thailand is the only Asian country that has not been colonized and has existed as a unified monarchy since 1350. The Kingdom of Thailand, located in Southeast Asia, has 2800 kms/1740 miles of coastline and is packed with cultural treasures, world-class hotels, fine restaurants, and unsurpassed resorts.

Thailand is a Buddhist country where Buddha images and the Royal Family are held sacred. The years are based on the Buddha's birth, which is 543 years before the western calendar. Dates are written with the day, month, and then year as used on most food or coupon expiration dates, so April 1, 2003 would be written 1/4/46. Other than Thai, many residents also speak English, which is a mandatory subject in schools.

The capitol city of Bangkok was established by King Rama I in 1782. Once known as the Venice of the East because of its extensive network of canals, Bangkok is now called the City of Angels by Thais. Climate ranges from 20C/68F. to 37C/98.6F. The three seasons are "hot" from March to June, "rainy" from July to October, and "cool" from November to February. The climate is tropical with plenty of sunshine and high humidity.
