Our Fees Are Affordable
We believe that education should be affordable and manageable for as many families as possible. So does this mean poor facilities or higher class numbers? No! We are open 7 days a week for classes and our facilities will be available for rent. By spreading the cost through other revenue streams, we aim to keep our fees reasonable.
We Do Not Forget Where We Are
Many International Schools minimize the Thai aspect of their schools, so parents are forced to choose either a Thai or an International School. We are proud to offer a British Curriculum, alongside a strong Thai programme that keeps our students at an exceptionally high level throughout all school levels.
We Offer A Truly Balanced, Modern Curriculum
All of our students are treated as individuals. We work hard to find out what each child’s passion is. We offer traditional academic subjects alongside modern lessons, such as Environmental Science, Social Development and Community Projects. These additional lessons help develop a child in a multitude of different ways.
We Remember Our Students Are Children!
Many schools require children to do hours of homework and spend weeks revising for needless exams. Our children are not forced to do homework, as they work hard in every lesson. For students wanting to develop their skills, they can ask for credit work to take home. Our students see extra work as a bonus, not as a punishment.
Our professional teachers assess as your child learns, they do not assess at the end of the term. Asking a primary child to spend 1-2 weeks revising for exams, 1 week taking exams and 1 week going over the results, means 4 weeks of valuable learning and so much added stress. On top of this most of what the students revise is crammed into them that they forget it within a few weeks of the exam. Exams are conducted only when required within the UK Curriculum.
We Do Not Label Children
Most students start to receive grades as early as Year 1. A child does not focus, (as they might not be socially or psychologically ready to) they receive a low score in a test. This then sets off a chain reaction, where parents panic and send their child to extra lessons, demand more work from the school and the child is then told they are no good at a certain subject. Most adults would say they are not good some subject and they were told this at an early age. At CISB we understand a child learns at very different levels and at different times. All our teacher mark work and record a score, but the child is only told they have achieved the required level to move to the next level, or they need more help. When a request for more help is highlighted we discuss this with our parents. We reward students for achieving the goals we set for them. For those who achieve the highest level, we still reward top effort, but we also reward improved efforts..
Quality education is not a privilege, it is a right every child and parent should expect. At CISB we promise to listen to our parents and to deliver upon our promises. We promise to build education, community and social partnerships.
Our principal aim is to deliver education to every child, in a way that will have them remembering CISB for the rest of their lives. We aim to create, assist and build upon dreams and open doors for every child who walks through ours!
A key to our success is the unique blend of academic and social activities offered at the school. Also, we are proud of the life-skills our teachers bring to each classroom, who they deliver more than is asked of them and work with every child to be the best they can be.
PARTNERSHIPS ARE IMPORTANT
Our school believes in building partnerships. Partnerships with parents, the local community, other schools and businesses. We involve our parents in the school process and expect them to support the school as the school supports them. We open our school for local community use. Hiring our facilities to help the community keep fit and well educated. Our doors don’t slam shut at 3 pm. We will work with reputable local businesses and other schools to offer our benefits to them and to share their knowledge. We are keen to show our students learning is not just restricted to the classroom.
Often students leave school with so much knowledge, so many facts and figures, but they never learn practical things that will continue to be of use as they grow.
Our students, amongst other things, will learn to;
