Garden International School, Bangkok is located in the heart of Bangkok, just a few minutes from both the MRT and BTS transport systems, as well as Lumpini Park. Our school is open to students aged from 2 to 18 years of age and is fully accredited by Edu Development Trust, ensuring that the highest standards are embedded in our daily work. We are an accredited Cambridge International Examination Centre and Oxford AQA Examination Centre and offer the prestigious IGCSEs and IA-Levels, which give our students the opportunity to enter their university of choice anywhere in the world.
Garden International School, Bangkok is a friendly and family-orientated school, which has community at his heart. Students, staff and parents work together for the good of the learning process and the school as a whole.
It has gone downhill in the past 2 years since a change of principal. It no longer feels like a friendly, community of a school. The SLT are under-qualified and lack the interpersonal skills and experience needed for their positions. There has been, and continues to be, a high staff turnover since 2021 yet SLT have failed to realize that they are the cause. They lay the blame at the feet of staff entirely unfairly, whilst treating staff disrespectfully and uncaringly. Staff are demoralized and classrooms are under-resourced. I would not recommend GIS for either prospective staff or students.

The management style at this school is one where managements ego is put before the children’s education. This school used to be a lovely community school, but has become less garden and more compost heap.

For the past 3 years the children return home excited, talking about school, what happened what teacher said.
They even like school dinners which is vastly different from my experiences of school dinners in England.
Staff know who my children are by name from teachers and assistants to admin staff. More like a family.
Our 2 daughters studying at Garden International School since 7 years now. The teachers are good and involved with the children and parents. The principal is very accessible and problems are solved very quickly. There is a very good atmosphere and the children are respectful to each other.
Teachers manage class differences well and each child has a personalized approach to teaching. In addition, they have set up this year a French first language education. Globally, we really appreciate this school!
Our two you children began their journey at GIS over a year and a half ago. What began as a journey of, "I wonder if the school will actually make good on what the Director has described in our inquiry meeting..." has continued to be nothing short over exceeding our expectations. The teaching, administrative, and support staff have made us feel more like family and less like customers. Our kids are known by name from their classroom all the way to administrative offices. Care and support happens on a very personal level as class sizes are small enough to afford regular one on one time with nearly daily feedback on behaviour and learning outcomes. Communication with the teachers is timely and regular. The extra curricular activities that are provided add to our children's learning experience. Despite being in a very urban centre, the school provides the children with a well kept garden and playground, access to weekly swimming lessons, as well as other high calibre athletic facilities within proximity to the school. Our children have gained more than a classroom experience, they've gained a community. The teachers and administration are evidently working hard to provide a unique "family" like experience for the children and their families, coupled with high quality education. This this point, they've succeeded at both.
