Welcome from the Principal

Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Garden International School, Eastern Seaboard, Ban Chang.

We are a family-oriented school in a beautiful part of Thailand where the needs of the children are paramount. Our Core Values drive our curriculum and also the way we work with the children and their families.

We run a free Baby Group on Wednesday afternoons during term with our Early Years teacher as a gentle introduction to school. Early Years is the first formal entry point for children aged 2 and Nursery and then Reception complete Foundation before the children move in to Year 1 in the recently revamped Primary Building.

Through to Year 9 we offer an International Curriculum using the British system as a framework which is modified to suit the needs of our international intake. Within the curriculum areas we ensure that we provide a differentiated, wide and balanced variety of educational opportunities.

Our Year 10 and 11 students undertake the IGCSE qualifications through the University of Cambridge (CIE) and our Year 12 and 13 students undertake the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) which is an excellent preparation for further education around the world.

The relationships we have within the GIS community are special – the child, the staff and the parents all working together in the best interests of the development of each child.

It is indeed your choice about their future, we hope to welcome you to our family.
