Wesley International School Bangkok started in 2015 to provide education from preschool up to Grade 4. The school uses English as its primary language of communication and follows the common core state standards and international standard education.
Thai and Mandarin language class are also available. Classes are fun and interactive and utilize the five senses while the small class sizes ensure personalised attention. Since 2015 the school has offered pre-K to Grade 5 classes but has since expanded to include Middle School classes during the 2020/2021 academic year.
As an international school modelled on the American schooling system, Wesley adheres to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) which advocates for the standardisation of maths and English across American states and also countries that accept the system. Indeed, all subjects are taught in English at this school, with the exception of Thai and Mandarin language classes.
The Wesley International School Bangkok offers education from Pre-kindergarten to Grade 5. It focuses on multiple values such as cultivating a love for learning and reading, developing lifelong learners, well-rounded multilingual education, collaboration with parents and the community, emphasis on critical thinking and making contributions to communities.
The school does not emphasise solely on test scores or on scholastic performances, instead, WIS is a proponent of the multiple intelligences school of thought. Students are empowered to express their interests, and to exhibit intelligences in more than one discipline, in creative spaces that have been established with the collaborative support of both parents and teachers.
Thus, the school also carries out a Lifelong Readers Program and a Language Learner Program to mould the students into creative individuals, equipping them with both critical thinking and socio-emotional skills.
The school boasts of well-qualified teachers who are focused on children’s individual needs. They encourage the children to take part in extra-curricular activities such as Drama, Dance, Creative Writing & Journalism, Design & Technology, and more interesting subjects.
