Amnuay Silpa School (Thai: โรงเรียนอำนวยศิลป์; RTGSRong Rian Amnuai Sin) is a coeducational private school in Bangkok, Thailand. It teaches kindergarten, primary and secondary levels. The school was founded in 1926, formerly as an all-boy school in the early years. Chitra Dansuputra was the co-founder and the owner of the school. He later set up a non-profit educational trust Amnuay Silpa Foundation and donated the school to the foundation in 1564.

At its peak, the school had a student body of 7,000, but has since scaled down to about 1,500.[1] Its alumni include six prime ministers of Thailand: Kriangsak Chamanan, Chatichai Choonhavan, Anand Panyarachun, Suchinda Kraprayoon, Chavalit Yongchaiyudh and Somchai Wongsawat.
