Message from the School Director
It is with great excitement that I invite you to our newly updated and vibrant website to
get the feel of our IPS family. Please feel free to browse through the various links, tabs
and photos, including the School Wide Learner Outcomes (SLO’s), Curriculums, and
Admissions, which would help you to understand more about our school and to make IPS
your first choice as a stepping-stone for your child’s education and a bright future.
International Pioneers School (IPS) is widely recognized as one of the premier
international schools in Bangkok, providing ‘quality affordable education’ for the past 20
years to both, the international community as well as the Thai populace.
IPS is conveniently located in the central business district (CBD) of Bangkok, adjacent to
the Krungthonburi BTS station near Saphan Phrachao Taksin Bridge on Charoen Nakorn
International Pioneers School is fully accredited by Western Association of Schools and
Colleges or WASC, besides the longtime local accreditation by Thailand’s own Office for
National Education Standards and Quality Assessment or ONESQA body.
The IPS curriculum is modelled on the British national curriculum and adapted to meet the
needs of the local as well as overseas students. Students of IPS are accepted into various
prestigious universities in Thailand and abroad.
International Pioneers School is a centre for the Cambridge International Examinations
(CIE) and we conduct Cambridge IGCSE, AS/A Levels and Checkpoint tests regularly to
assess students’ academic progress and to benchmark their performances. IPS also
administers Edexcel Qualifications for high school students. These external examinations
are well-structured, have high credibility and are recognized by universities all over the
I am also happy to announce that this year, our Check Point results of Year 6 & Year 9,
IGCSE and A Level results were good – as usual. IPS Science and Mathematics results are
always higher than the world average. This year our English Check Points results
exceeded our expectations. At IPS, we teach our students to become problem-solvers and
team players. In addition to ensuring the success of our students academically, we pay
attention to what our students do after graduating from our school and maintain
relationships with our alumni. We motivate our students to be creative, innovative and
enterprising in order to become successful in their chosen career paths. We will not cease
challenging ourselves and our students to achieve greater goals.
Besides academics, we place a lot of emphasis on extracurricular activities, as we want
our students to learn and excel outside as well as inside the classroom, to express their
creativity and augment their communication skills.
We have motivated and supportive teachers and staff who create a family-like atmosphere,
where positive learning among students takes place.
The IPS community takes various initiatives that inculcate global mindedness among our
students and develop them as responsible global citizens. The global village is witnessing
rapid changes in the socioeconomic aspect of life and we encourage and enable our
students to learn to be flexible and ready to face any challenges in the future. We
encourage our students to study with a purpose and also to learn to treat the mother earth
and ‘nature,’ with responsibility.
As an international school in the era of the world without frontiers, we have made
speaking English a priority. We have implemented various strategies to compel our
students to speak English on the school grounds at all times. Our IGCSE and AS/A levels
program are tailored to meet the needs of the students, their career aspirations, and to play
to their strengths.
I would like to appeal to our parents to encourage your children to read every day - to
create a steadfast reading habit, play outdoors, limiting screen exposure and helping
parents doing house chores. We should promote our students to limit their use of phones
and head phones while walking on the street.
I extend a warm welcome to you to visit our school in order to receive firsthand
information on how we can assist your child to prepare for a brighter future.
During this academic year 2018-2019, International Pioneers School (IPS) has completed
20 years since establishment in 1998 and we surely have come a long way. Building up an
international school from its inception and seeing it grow and achieve the 20 years
milestone is a major achievement for all our stakeholders.
I wish to extend my warmest appreciation to all our stakeholders and thank you for your
faith and trust in our school.
Let us fire up the IPS engine and turbo charge it for the next 40 years hence. God speed.
As for applicants who wish to join us on our journey of awakening our future generations,
