Which Thailand schools offer all three IB programmes?

There are five full IB schools offering all three programmes including the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the IBDP. The IB's three programmes were not actually designed as a continuum. Each is a standalone framework and curriculum, developed at different times and stages of the IB's evolution. Increasingly, the IB organisation is moving to provide an overarching framework for children from 11 through to 19. Even with this, however, it is not necessary, or even usual for a school to offer all programmes.

The following schools offer the IB continuum:

Concordian International School

KIS International School

NIST International School,

Prem Tinsulanonda International School

UWC Thailand International School
