Thai-Chinese International School (TCIS; Chinese: 泰國中華國際學校; Thai: โรงเรียนนานาชาติ ไทย-จีน) is a private, non-profit day school in Bang Phli District, Samut Prakan Province, in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region of Thailand.[1]

It is located approximately 10 minutes from Mega Bangna, a 30-minute drive from downtown Bangkok, and a 25-minute drive from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport. It is ranked[who?][citation needed] as one of the top international schools in Thailand. [2] [3]

The school was founded in 1995 to serve the Taiwanese and Thai communities. It offers trilingual education in English, Chinese, and Thai.

History[edit]

The Taiwanese Ministry of Education previously oversaw the school and designated it as an overseas Taiwanese school. It removed TCIS from the list on 1 February 2006 since TCIS was unable to conform to Taiwanese curriculum standards.[4]

Accreditation[edit]

The Thai-Chinese International School is licensed under/accredited by:

Curriculum Overview[edit]

The schools offers the USA’s Common Core curriculum at all grade levels, and Advanced Placement courses for high school. The Common Core, used by most states in America, is a set of high-quality academic standards . These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade. [5]

The standards, based on evidence and research,and informed by other top-performing countries, were created by experts and educators from across the USA to ensure that all students graduate from high school with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life, and prepared for success in today’s global economy and interconnected world

To ensure all students are ready for success after high school, the Common Core establishes clear, consistent guidelines for the knowledge and skills that every student should have, from kindergarten through 12th grade. The standards are designed to ensure students are prepared for today’s entry-level careers, freshman-level college courses, and workforce training programs.

The Common Core standards are based on rigorous content and the application of knowledge through higher-order thinking, and focus on developing the critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that students will need to be successful.

The standards also provide a way for teachers to measure student progress throughout the school year and ensure that students are on the pathway to success in their academic careers.

Students[edit]

The students are drawn from many different nationalities. As the name suggests, many of the students are Taiwanese or Thai, but there are also American, Canadian, British, Latin American, Japanese, Korean, and Filipino students. [6]

University entry[edit]

TCIS students choose to go to university in many different countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and Thailand. [7] Every year for the past ten years, 100% of all graduating students from the school were accepted to their chosen university or college. In 2018, TCIS students received over USD 1,000,000 in scholarships.

Cafeteria[edit]

Cafeteria provides cuisine in Thai, Taiwanese, Western, and other Asian. Other options are always available, as are fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies.[8]

Athletics[edit]

The school has several sports and athletic activities including football (soccer), basketball, volleyball, golf, swimming, softball, and weight training. TCIS is a member of, and competes in, the Bangkok International Schools Athletic Conference (BISAC). [9]
