Conveniently located in the city of Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai International School (CMIS) provides high-quality education in an ideal social and cultural environment. CMIS has been helping meet the educational needs of the international community in northern Thailand since 1954. In a few years, CMIS will celebrate its 70th anniversary of educational excellence.
We offer an English-language, American-sourced education taught from an international perspective. Our well-qualified teachers provide instruction that is aligned to a standards-based curriculum focused on learning. The academically rigorous Advanced Placement (AP) courses offered in high school help prepare our graduates for admission to outstanding universities and colleges around the world.
Built on a tradition of providing educational excellence in a caring community, today we remain the school of choice for students from more than 30 different countries. While remaining true to our core values of the Christian faith, we welcome students from all faiths, cultures, nationalities, and backgrounds from the expanding international community in northern Thailand.
At CMIS, we celebrate our ethnic and cultural diversity. Our students have historic and cultural connections to many different countries, speak multiple languages, and often hold more than one passport. We strive to maintain a culturally diverse student body, adding to the richness of the international educational experience.
I was a student here for many years. I'm sure it's changed some since my time. I had a good experience with mostly great teachers, a strong academic focus in the curriculum and some memorable extra-curriculars. The campus is a little crowded but it's charming. The diverse student population adds flavour. Not sure about tuition currently but it used to be quite reasonable.
Was once a very colorful free-spirited school. But under new administration. IE Aaron Willette it has lost its charm and has become a much more stressful learning environment. Not to mention the best most passionate teachers being forced out due to forced curriculums. Really sad to see it in this state. Used to be worth every penny now its severely overpriced.
