About Montessori House Phuket International School (MHP)
Montessori House Phuket International School is the only Montessori school on the island of Phuket, Thailand. Set in a lush environment near Chalong Temple, we are a private school for children ages 3-12. We value our teachers and students and have no more than 15 children per classroom, with two teachers in each classroom.
We are the alternative for those who are seeking well-rounded, English-language education that focuses on overall child development and the construction of knowledge, instead of rogue memorisation of useless information.
As a true Montessori school, we promote joyful, self-directed learning that builds the foundation for positive character development and lasting success. In our warm and natural setting, students benefit from a rich learning environment with a distinctive Montessori program that uses Thai values, culture, and the natural world as focal points that lead to global understanding. For this reason, we emphasise quality teachers and relationships more than shiny new facilities that incubate us from the natural world. At MHP, we nurture children’s developing minds, recognizing, respecting, and celebrating the individuality and potential of every child.
Our kids have been going to the school for almost a year now - started in September 2015. I really can't believe how well they're doing - we have three kids there one just turned 5, another turned 6, the other is 7 - the two older are in lower elementary and the youngest in kindergarten.
The older ones reading is really amazing - both reading at second, or third grade level - but, the best part is that they really seem to enjoy the reading! Both have really gotten more confident also.
We also love that the place seems to be like one big fun family. Great friends and great people!
