The BASIS curriculum is a system that OFTEN sees youngsters going on to attend the best universities.

The schools only recruit faculty members who are experts in their respective fields as well as managers who are ambitious, passionate, and empathetic.
The new Bangkok school was conceived after studies showed a growing demand in Thailand for a more ambitious education system following huge demand for places at the BASIS International Schools in Shenzhen, which was established in 2015, and Guangzhou, China, which opened in 2017.
“In today’s digitised global world, the need for professional, multilingual international teachers with a real interest in children’s futures and an ability to help structure them is regarded as increasingly important,” said Carolyn McGarvey, chief executive of BASIS International. “That’s the goal of BASIS International School Bangkok: putting children in a place that provides them with the best opportunities for what lies ahead.”
The BASIS Curriculum operates from preschool to 12th grade. Initially, the Bangkok school will serve students up to 5th grade, adding a minimum of one extra grade a year.
