There are a number of international schools in Bangkok, all of which cater to different nationalities and follow various curricula, including that of the US, the UK and Australia. The International Baccalaureate is also a common curriculum. Bangkok's international schools are popular with expats and locals for the good standard of education they offer.
The standards and popularity of these schools also mean that places are limited and prices are much higher than public education. Some of the most popular international schools in Bangkok are listed below.
