  • Garden International School, Bangkok is a coeducational school of around 360 students, with classes from Early Years to Year 13. The school has a wonderful sense of community and class sizes are generally small, with the students well behaved, engaged in their learning and supported by their families.

    Bangkok is a vibrant and modern capital city, which has all the international standard amenities you would expect to find, but it also retains wonderful historical districts that allow residents of Bangkok to immerse themselves in Thailand’s history. Thailand is an exciting country with rich cultural experiences; it is a beautiful part of the world with year round sun and is a safe place to work overseas. The cost of living is very reasonable and teachers tend to avail themselves of high quality holiday experiences around the region.
