The American School of Bangkok is a school that offers education from pre-kindergarten up to Grade 12. It aims to provide an international perspective and follows the American standard of education (also known as the American Schools Curriculum).
The school is licensed by the Thai Ministry of Education and has repeatedly featured placing students (many of them on full academic scholarships) in top universities across the world including Harvard University, Berkeley, University of Washington, University of California, University of Tokyo and many others.
The American School of Bangkok is an accredited US College Board provider to offer Advanced Placement (AP) programmes, and thus far offers one of the widest collections of AP programmes available via international schools throughout the world. It offers a wide selection of subjects and promotes a competitive education environment so that students live up to their highest potential.
Students learn important values outside the purview of the curriculum to develop as complete human beings with a healthy mindset. The stimulating academic syllabus is supplemented with an active, involved family atmosphere that pushes students to pursue their highest possible level of intellectual, physical, creative, and social progress.
The school has several value-added courses on offer. There is a U.S. College Board ‘Springboard Programme’ which is offered to middle school students to prepare them for admission to world-renowned universities. Students are also taught mindfulness techniques and encouraged to include them in academic excellence.
The school also has a summer academy which is a 5-week programme offered to students of all grades. Students get academically enriched as well as have fun while undertaking this programme, which has been running for 10-years.
Apart from this, students also attend field trips where they participate in various activities related to art, music and science. High school students are offered additional credits and accelerate to other subjects apart from the mainstream classes.
