The first and only full, not-for-profit IB World School in Thailand, NIST International School was established in 1992 with the guidance and support of the United Nations. The school now welcomes over 1,500 students of over 50 nationalities and provides all three International Baccalaureate programmes: the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme. NIST is governed by the parent-elected NIST International School Foundation and is accredited through the Council of International Schools and New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

Globally recognized for its progressive approach, the IB provides students with critical 21st century skills. The academic structure emphasizes exploration, risk taking and trans-disciplinary learning. Other unique learning opportunities include events such as TEDx Youth@NIST, the annual Action Week and the Harvard Business School CORe programme. NIST partners with other top schools to offer the Global Citizen Diploma, an optional qualification that assesses graduates’ leadership, service and community engagement. The school is also committed to IT excellence and innovation. All students receive MacBook Air computers and iPads, connected through a completely wireless campus.

In addition to its rigorous academics, NIST offers an expansive World Languages Programme and over 300 extra-curricular activity options. As one of the founding members of the Southeast Asia Student Activity Conference, the NIST Falcons compete against their peers from other top schools in Southeast Asia. The programme is further enhanced through partnerships with globally recognized talent, including Chelsea FC, which maintains a permanent presence at the school through the Chelsea FC Soccer School Bangkok.

NIST represents the future of education through its stellar academic achievements; engaged, community-driven culture; forward-looking philosophy; and expansive resources. With its graduates attending the best universities in the world and going on to become community leaders, NIST International School has become recognized as one of Asia's leading learning institutions.

A great school & an even better community

NIST just feels unique when you walk through the campus. You get a sense of the passion for learning from everyone, including students, teachers and parents. It's not surprising that the school has an excellent academic record, but it's also focused on building the greater community. Students have even launched their own service organizations and NGOs that have positively impacted lives around Thailand. That sense of caring is at the heart of the school, and it permeates every aspect of the educational programmes.

While it's not perfect, NIST is continually striving to be better, and it shows.
