Families living in the Eastern Seaboard have a growing choice of international schools - but Garden International School (GIS) is the only one to be fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS).
Garden International School, Eastern Seaboard (GIS) is based in the quiet town of Ban Chang and takes students from Early Years through to Year 13. It follows the National Curriculum for England in all year groups; at secondary level, it teaches IGCSEs and then switches to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
GIS has a decent academic record. In 2018, 89% of students scored at least five IGCSEs with grades A* – Cs, and 40% were graded A* or A. In the IBDP, the average score was five points above the global average at 30. The majority of its students go on to study at universities in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, and Thailand.
There are around 480 students representing more than 40 different nationalities. As well as involving all students in house activities, the school has a daily programme of extra-curricular activities, with many being run by the teachers and free of charge.
GIS is part of the Malaysia-based Taylor's Education Group, which owns schools across South East Asia, including Nexus International School in Singapore. It also has two campuses in Bangkok, where students can study IGCSEs and A Levels.
