    REPS Rayong is a dual-language (Eng-Thai) school. We currently have our 5 yo boy there. It's a decent enough school, but we will be moving him to a full International school when he becomes fluent in written / spoken Thai.
    I don't have any info on the other schools you mention. Please update the thread as you find out more.

    My 3 kids went there but did not learn to read and write Thai.

    Reluctantly I put them into Satit and all turned out very well with 2 of my children gaining entry into good universities and their English is perfect as well as their Thai reading and writting.

    At the end of the day it is up to the work your children put in at home.

    Satit is worth a try.

    Regent if you can afford it and costs go up with age but most schools offer discounts for a second child. Teacher-friends from there say it's great for discipline, teaches proper English not that foreign stuff, has a top end curriculum and expects and gets high standards from its students, but overall not good value unless you don't mind paying for probably the best.

    Maryvit has a fine reputation with something like 80% following on to university. English teachers are (or were) Filipino if you don't mind, a lot cheaper than Regent. Ample grounds in the middle of a huge empty site so lots of scope for expansion if they get around to it.

    Garden Intl in Ban Chang is a British school, higher standards than most, good value, never heard anything negative except daily travel can be a strain for young kids.

    Satit covered.

    And lots more to choose from. Best to visit a few on your short list just before home time and get chatting with parents.

    Not sure he was retarded but his luek krung lad who went to a couple of ridiculous Thai public schools is now chief pilot for some helicopter company.

    Another one's daughter is some sort of supervisor for all the Fuji Restaurants in Bangkok.

    Burapa BEST was top of the pile (in its price range) about 2 years ago when they were paying teachers decent coin. But it's a lottery and once the owners start dicking with salaries, teachers (good ones) walk and go where the money is. I heard they have had issues with integrating their new English curriculum during 2016-17 which had a knock-on effect on the existing calendar. They may have sorted that out but they may be still short-cutting on quality teachers.

    If I move back down that way, I would be more interested in living around Ban Chang and put my lad into REPS Rayong. The drives from Pattaya to REPS are too lomg and we all know about minibuses in LOS. Otherwisew Satit gets the nod. maybe that's where the good BEST teachers moved to?

    My daughter was educated at a Thai public school and is now at University in Bangkok doing a degree in chemistry.

    And we all know how high is the value of a Thai degree.

    It works in Thailand. Not as much as having the right family connections but its better than having no degree.

    I would think getting a good job in Thailand has more to do with connections and money rather than what degree you have. For instance, what does it take to get a commercial pilot job in Thailand? Or a good paying engineering position?

    Another vote for Regent if money isn't an issue.
