Garden International School (GIS) is the most experienced IB school on Thailand's Eastern Seaboard. For nearly 20 years, GIS has provided a world-class IB education to students.
GIS is based in a safe, secure, semi-rural environment, around two hours' drive from Bangkok. The area includes a recently-developed airport, good transportation links and has a large expat community.
The school has an excellent track record. In 2016 and 2017 we enjoyed 100 per cent pass rates for the IB Diploma and our points average was far higher than the global average. In recent years, GIS students have gone on to study at world-famous institutions such as UC Berkeley, UCLA, and Berklee College of Music in the US and the University of Warwick and Durham University in the UK.
Our IB numbers continue to grow, but we are still able to offer a low teacher-student ratio. These small class sizes mean teachers can offer extensive support and help to students. Our teachers are highly experienced, and several are also IB workshop leaders.
As well as support in classes, GIS has a strong pastoral element, which offers significant extra guidance. This includes specialist University Counsellors, trips to university exhibitions and workshops. The workshops help students know how to apply to universities, give advice about living independently and also show students how to write a CV. We also offer boarding.
Students at GIS have access to excellent, state-of-the-art facilities. These include fully-equipped laboratories, new ICT suites, high-quality musical sound rooms and 3D printers for our well-equipped DT classrooms. Our sports facilities include two swimming pools, a football pitch and basketball courts.
Our Prefect programme offers IB students the chance to take on significant leadership roles within school. This experience is also useful and influential when applying to universities. In addition, we operate a popular Model United Nations (MUN) club and have strong after-school sports and community programmes.
As the only school in the region with full accreditation from the Council of International Schools (CIS), we have the experience and quality to offer outstanding opportunities for IB students.
