At BASIS International Bangkok, our students find joy in discovery, both inside and outside of the classroom.
BASIS Curriculum School students are fundamentally risk takers. Students are not afraid to challenge themselves, their peers, their teachers, or their favorite authors. The hallmark of a BASIS Curriculum student is an appetite for academic challenge; the hallmark of BASIS Curriculum teachers is their tireless work each day to inspire and satisfy that hunger. Despite their intellectual drive, our kids are kids, they are real, relaxed, interested in athletics, art, music, cooking — you name it. Students are incredibly supportive and respectful of one another.
Our students are smart but above all curious. Children become BASIS Curriculum students in our classrooms, inspired by our great teachers, our excellent curriculum and our raised expectations for what they can achieve. At our school, we promise an education that teaches children that learning and success depend on commitment and hard work. We encourage their willingness to take on challenges, to manage the inevitable disappointments and to understand that the most authentic, joyous feelings of accomplishment are not given or bought, but earned. Our most successful students realize and fully take advantage of the endless help offered at BASIS International School Bangkok.
They set high expectations and offer continuous support as students rise to meet those expectations. Ask any BASIS Curriculum student what makes their school different, and they will first tell you “the teachers.” Our teachers’ passion for what they teach creates an environment in which students are nurtured and grow to love learning. Though driven by our core curriculum, teachers are given the freedom to do what they do best: lighting the fire of learning in every child.
BASIS Curriculum teachers are highly respected for their knowledge and insight into the individual needs of their students. Our teachers know that every child learns differently. Students are not only offered, but encouraged, to seek help and support in and out of the classroom. Every teacher has at least two hours of student hours set aside a week where students are supported one-on-one or in small groups. It is not uncommon to find older students voluntarily helping younger students during study periods, lunches, and before or after school.
