A new all-through school that promises to be a “school of the future” will open in Bangkok in August 2020. VERSO International School will offer an innovative American standards-based curriculum at its futuristic, Apple-style campus in Bang Na.

Located on a 30-acre, purpose-built campus located next to Thana City Golf and Country Club, VERSO will open for students in early years (two-year-olds) up to Grade 8 in 2020, with the Grades 9-12 opening in August 2021; its full capacity will be 1,800 students.

VERSO will open in the same year as two British all-through schools, North London Collegiate School (Bangkok) and King’s College International School Bangkok, a sign perhaps of the rising demand for international schools in the country. But the schools couldn’t be more different. In contrast to the traditional, British public-school curriculum delivered at NLCS and King’s College, VERSO will offer a new model of education.

This is a school where teachers are more like mentors guiding students through activities and topics of interest; students are divided into cohorts rather than traditional single grade levels; and students can choose their own curriculum in a very personalized-style of education.

The school is a joint-venture partnership between U City (Bangkok) and a Hong Kong private investor, and the founding head of school is Cameron Fox. Originally from Scotland, Fox moves to Thailand after spending the past 14 years as head of school at the American International School in Hong Kong.
