The International Baccalaureate (IB) does not merely promote a curriculum, but rather a mission to transform the world through education.
Our community has cultivated a well-deserved reputation for excellence in academics over the past two decades. Being the first full International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Thailand and a frequent early adopter of programme developments, NIST enjoys an unparalleled relationship with the IB, remaining at the forefront of progressive, research-based teaching and learning.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
– William Durant –
NIST encourages all students to push beyond their limits through the Extra-Curricular Activities (ECAs) Programme, which offers more than 300 activities in areas as diverse as sports, drama, music, art, technology, academics, language, and social and environmental activism.
All of the members of the NIST community, past and present, see education as a force that can enlighten and transform.
