Josuikan Bangkok International School is a Japanese International School established in 2008 which follows Thail laws and regulations. The school believes that 4 elements are necessary with respect to education – intelligence, independence, symbiosis and ceremony.
The school is primarily meant for students of Japanese nationals and follows the Japanese National Curriculum. The school caters to Secondary level students.
In the early part of the 21st century, it was found that there was upwards of 40,000 people of Japanese origin living in the Thai municipal capital of Bangkok. While there were Japanese infused schools in Bangkok up to the junior high school stage, for a secondary school education the options were limited to a Thai national school or a more general international school grounding.
At the same time, the onslaught of the globalisation wave was beginning to affect the country of Japan in general and the Japanese people in particular, so the need to respond to the globalisation surge became a more pressing concern for international schools influenced by traditionally subdued Japanese culture.
Josuikan Bangkok International School is a well-equipped facility with spacious classrooms. The school building houses a gymnasium, auditorium, table tennis room, dining room, library and a computer room. Adapting to the cultural norms of Thailand, such as having a director and school principal as a Thai subject, became critical to the foundational establishment and acceptance of Josuikan Bangkok International School as an international secondary school of Japanese renown in Bangkok.
The school follows the Japanese National Curriculum where students are taught subjects such as the National Language, Geography, History, Citizen, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Art, English, Family foundation, society and information, Thai language and Thai culture.
The school prepares students so that they are able to cope and compete once they go back to Japan. Hence, the school conducts periodic practice tests where each child’s knowledge in Japanese is examined.
The school also provides innumerable opportunity to understand the Thai culture by arranging events where Thai students interact with the Japanese students. The school has a limited number of students in each class which ensures a better understanding of the curriculum and better interaction between students.
