Dulwich International School

Post Posted: Mon May 15, 2006 4:26 pm

Hi again,
I just wanted some feedback on this school. Does anyone have child/ren friend's child/ren going to this school. If so, would be much appreciatiative of some feedback. We really did not want to move to the area (was looking for something a little bit more laid back Hua Hin!) but needs must if we cannot find a good school. We are planning to be in Thailand for the foreseeable future so it's vital we get the school right.
Thanks again. Razz

hi nimajacole,

I teach at a bilingual school in Krabi, which is about 90 km from Phuket (that may be wrong, but it is close to Krabi anyway.) We recently had a student transfer from Dulwich and he is easily the brightest student in the class, if not a grade above his in English and one of the tops in Math and Science. Dulwich is a TRUE international school, that is, they use the British Curriculum in its entirety rather than just taking the parts of U.S. or U.K. curriculums that are easy to achieve like many other "bilingual" or self-professed "international" schools do. They pay their teachers very well, and only hire teachers that are qualified to teach in their own country such as America or the U.K.

By the way, the schol is not longer affiliated with Dulwich because of disputes - it is now called the "British Curriculum School" or something to that effect) .

The school is very expensive by Thai standards, but I can attest to the fact that their facilities and their staff are truly top-notch.

Hope this helps you

-RIlINjuH!

Hi and thanks for your response.
Do you know of the area surrounding the school and whether it is a good place to bring up children. We want to get it right and hopefully be able to enjoy our surroundings and not worry about our dd going to school. The cost is not an issue really as my husband has a good job and we will be able to live a good standard in Thailand.
