Our Vision

We empower our diverse and inclusive community to take responsibility for creating a sustainable and peaceful world.

Our Mission

GIS is a caring and vibrant international community of happy and passionate lifelong learners. We strive for excellence through our core values; overcoming challenges, nurturing our own and each other’s potential and celebrating success.

Welcome to Garden International School, Eastern Seaboard, Ban Chang where we aim to provide an adventure for young minds and a home for their hearts. In a family-friendly setting, we nurture your child’s passions and interests, help them to develop as caring and compassionate individuals, and prepare them to take on leadership roles in their chosen fields.

Garden International School is a co-educational school of around 480 students, drawn mainly from the Pattaya, Sattahip and Rayong areas, comprising of around 40 nationalities we are a truly international community.

We welcome students from the age of two into our Early Years programme and follow a British style curriculum up to age 16 when our students sit the Cambridge International General Certificate of Education examinations (IGCSEs). For the final two years of their education at GIS, our oldest students, aged 16 – 18, undertake the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Our teachers are highly qualified and experienced, and year after year, our examination results at both IGCSE and IBDP far exceed international averages. Our students go on to study at some of the best universities around the World.

GIS is the only school on the Eastern Seaboard to have been fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS). We are also accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), Cambridge Assessment International Education and the Thai Ministry of Education (ONESQA). We are affiliated to the International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT) and the Department for Education in the United Kingdom. We are also a founder member of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA).

It is indeed ‘your choice’ about ‘their future’, and we very much look forward to welcoming you into ‘our family’.
