There’s so much to like. A rich melting pot of cultures set in a tropical paradise that offers the perfect mix of societal values and amenities, a nation almost anyone would be happy to call home. Thailand has become quite the destination for many families to migrate to. Among the many boxes that the country ticks is a comprehensive educational school system for expatriates looking to place their kids in school.

When it comes to finding a school for the kids, many parents choose an institute based on location – commute can be a pain for many ferrying to and fro on a daily basis. We take a look at a few of the choices at hand as well as surrounding residential properties to make one’s life all the easier:


Bangkok is home to approximately 70 international schools that conduct curriculum in English language , spread across the city to cater to a growing number of expatriates. Parents looking for central located institutions can seek enrolment with the likes of St. Andrews International School located in Sukhumvit, which caters to students till tertiary level. Another school in the area that is popular is the American School of Bangkok that has a campus in the same area, also catering to students till they are ready for university. For those looking for an Australian educational system, there is always the Australian International School in Bangkok. If one is more accustomed to the British education system, the Bangkok International Preparatory and Secondary School is a popular choice, located at the heart of On Nut’s T77 community.

Popular property developments that are close to the abovementioned institutes are Khun By Yoo, 98 Wireless, Oka Haus and Kawa Haus.


Located within Ladswai Lamlukka Pathum Thani, The Da Vinci International School provides UK (Cambridge) curriculum supported by experienced teachers that create tailored and holistic teaching experiences for all students. The school provides students with a “blend of local and international curricula and syllabuses to enable them to excel in their studies, their interests and their hobbies and to prepare effectively for the wide range of studying and career options available when they graduate”.

Another institute that is popular with expatriates in Huahin is the Beaconhouse Yamasaard School that caters to bilingual children in both the English and Thai medium. The school provides curriculum that balances the acquisition of academic knowledge with life skills, moral and cultural values, providing students with an all-round education.

A few of the properties in Huahin that are worth taking a look at are the La Casita, Baan Kiang Fah and Rain Cha Am developments.


The beach resort city also offers considerable options when it comes to education for your kids. The Regents International School is one of them, a member of the world-acclaimed family of Nord Anglia Education premium international schools. The school also offers boarding facilities for those who live too far from their homes, a convenient facility for families looking for flexible arrangements with the institution. Students benefit from being among those from fifty-one nationalities, experiencing a good mix of cultures.

Properties in Pattaya have been experiencing rising popularity over the last few years, with developments in Central Pattaya such as THE EDGE and THE BASE providing luxurious accommodation at competitive prices.

Aside from location, expatriates are also always advised to consider factors such as the facilities, fees registration process, calendar year as well as extra-curricular activities before choosing the right school for their kids.
