(Frequently Asked Questions)

  • Where can I find the academic calendar for 2021-22

    The Academic calendar is available on our website.
    Please see the link.

  • The curriculum is challenging; how do I know my child will succeed?

    From their very first day as a BASIS student, children see and understand how incredibly serious we take their education and academic growth. Ours is an environment that champions hard work and the belief that all students can achieve amazing feats when they put their minds to it. We are all a team—your child, other students, teachers, managers alike—and the team works together to ensure the success and empowerment of each student. The support your child will receive is unmatched;
    the culture that welcomes them each day
    to explore and learn is warm, spontaneous, alive with curiosity, and always nurturing. Our results are only possible because of our culture of learning. Teachers provide office hours throughout the school week for students.

    Read more about student services.

  • Any plan for a high school program?

    We already have all facilities and have been approved to open up to the 12th grade. However, due to the unique nature and academic rigor of the BASIS Curriculum, we opened through Grade 7 and will continue to open an additional grade each year thereafter.
    • y2022 open to G.8
    • y2023 open to G.9
    • y2024 open to G.10
    • y2025 open to G.11
    • y2026 open to G.12

    We have taken this ‘academics first’ approach to help ensure our students have an opportunity to matriculate through the BASIS Curriculum so they can meet the academic challenges in G6 through G12.

  • How are students assessed?

    We administer regular assessments to ensure that students meet the requirements of their classes. Our Assessment covers three areas: Math, English/Language Arts, and Writing. The content of these exams is based on the foundational material for the grade students are applying for.

    For more information on what to expect on the Assessments, please read:

    That’s why BASIS International School teachers hold student hours (office hours) to provide additional help and support for students who request it.

  • What is the Application process?

    We are now accepting applications for the 2021-22 school year. Register for our interest list to receive updates from our admissions team. Read more about our application process at BASIS International School Bangkok.

  • How many children are enrolled in the school?

    Currently, we expect 330 students for the 2021-22 school year. This includes students who will matriculate from lower grades, together with new students who have recently enrolled. For the 2021-22 school year, we are open for PK1-G7.

    Our policy is to primarily accept new students into the early year learning and primary program only. While accepting some exceptional students, this is a rare exception and we strongly encourage interested applicants to apply before G5.

  • Where can we access the current fee schedule?

    The Fee schedule is available on our website. Please see the link.

  • How do you select teachers?

    We hire the brightest and most promising minds; individuals who are committed to sharing their subject matter expertise with students.

    When determining which teachers would be the best fit for our school, we consider a variety of important factors. For Subject Expert Teachers, we require a degree representing their expertise in a particular discipline and/or significant teaching experience in the subject they want to teach. For Learning Expert Teachers, we often look for candidates with degrees in either early childhood or elementary education. Our SET/LET teaching model is one of the cornerstones of our acclaimed curriculum.

    After several rounds of interviews, we invite finalists to the school to give a teaching demonstration. This is a 20-minute lesson where they demonstrate how they would structure their class. During these demos, we focus less on content and more on student engagement and interaction.

    Because we are in the fortunate position of often having far more applicants than we have job openings, we are able to be quite selective in this process. We only hire those teachers who can recreate that spark that is an unmistakable component of a BASIS Independent classroom.

  • How can I apply for a teaching position?

    All teacher recruiting is managed by the US recruiting team. Interested candidates are encouraged to visit their website:

  • What kind of transportation is offered?

    We have transportation options available to certain parts of Bangkok. Please contact our admissions team to see if we have a bus route in your area. If we have demand for routes in a specific area, we are often able to accommodate and create a bus route for that zone.

  • Do you offer boarding?

    We currently do not have any opportunities for boarding students.

The goal of a great education is to provide students with limitless opportunities.

Carolyn McGarvey - CEO, BASIS International Education Holdings

At BASIS, my children found focus and passion in learning. I value a well-rounded education more than one that only focuses on academics. I chose BASIS because it’s a learning community of mutual respect, which can satisfy the curiosity of my children.

Ms. Siripen S. - mother of Guangjia (Grade 4) and Mannghung (Grade 1)

The kids are happy, confident and they love coming to school.

Ms. Cataleya T. - mother of Narvey (PreK2) and Narvyn (PreK1)

At BASIS, we provide an open environment for inter-teacher collaboration. I work with many of the other teachers to find ways that we can combine totally different fields in order to achieve the learning objective of our students.

Joshua Levenson - Subject Expert Teacher, Science & Geography

On the CLUB FAIR DAY, the kids and parents were able to see the offerings being presented and made our own choices. As parents, we can also suggest new activities that we would like to see on campus.

Ms. Lurka N. - Mother of Thamdee (PreK1)

My daughter is really enjoying her Chinese classes. The lessons are engaging and fun. The school doesn’t stop reinventing itself and takes care to involve parents in the joy of discovery.

Ms. E.Tan - Mother of Megan (Grade 1)

Our children learn Thai 5 days a week. They are also learning elements of Thai in other classes and outside of the classroom. It’s a truly locally-rooted, globally connected learning environment.
