Joining a community as diverse and active as NIST can often be intimidating for both parents and children, particularly if they are also new to Bangkok and Thailand. The admissions process does not end upon acceptance to the school. We want all newcomers to feel welcome and comfortable, and to understand what resources are available to help them in the transition.
Additionally, we recognize that in many cases families may only be joining us for a few short years. In such cases we also aim to provide guidance in repatriation, both in transitioning back to a non-IB curriculum, and in addressing the emotional and social effects that often arise for expatriates returning home.
