Garden International School, Thailand, was established in 1994, to serve the educational needs of the children of the growing international community living in and around the Eastern Seaboard.

1994 - 1995

Within a year the school had grown considerably due to increasing number of expatriates in Ban Chang, as a result of the establishment of the growing industrial sites situated nearby. The school was registered with the Thai Ministry of Education in 1994 and with the United Kingdom's Department for Education and Skills in 1995.

1996 - 1999

GIS was a founding member of FOBISIA (Federation of British International Schools in Asia) in 1997, and gained accreditation from the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organisation) in 1998.

Garden International School had its first group of students sit for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education in June 1996 and its first International Baccalaureate Diploma candidates in June 1999.


In 2012 GIS became the first, and currently still the only, school in the region to be fully accredited by the Council of International Schools, which is something we are very proud of.

Present Day

GIS now has almost 500 students representing about 40 nationalities on our campus.
