    Private Schools in the Pattaya Area?

    I'm looking for a school with grades 8-12 with fees substantially lower than Regent,Garden, St. Andrew,etc. Those schools cater to rich businessmen and women and are out of my price range. Surely there are others - I've Googled the landscape and came up empty. So any suggestions and leads would be greatly appreciated.

    It seems your only choice then would be a Thai school either private or government with an English Program. This would mean that 3 or 4 subjects would be taught in English but the remainder would be in Thai so the child would have to read, write, and speak Thai as well. International schools are expensive, but where there is a will there is a way. I got twins though international school in Bangkok. We were able to get a scholarship discount for the four full years of high school. I wish you luck.

    The EP school will be good for entrance to a Thai university or an international one here but not much use for a university abroad.

    Thanks for your Advice

    I'm wondering what got your twins a scholarship discount? Her GPA at her private school in the Philippines?
    A test by the school? How much was the discount in terms of % of full tuition? Your family income?

    Are you freaking kidding me? Why cant you afford to put your kids in an international school? How is the same question going on Thai Visa?

    First of all, she is NOT my daughter and you have no idea about my finances and obligations. Second, I ASKED you a simple question. You refused to answer, so I consider this conversation closed.

    BEST Burapha English Programme School in Pattaya
    * I called this place a poor man's international school. Students are not only Thai but Filipino, Indian, South Korean, Russian and half breeds of many different nationalities. My 100% Thai step-daughter went here for P5 and P6 and she's now a freshman at Washington State University.

    Rayong English Programme School is another. Right next door to GIS in Rayong.

    i didn't ask about your finances mate. I merely suggested that AO could give you the skinny on the question you posed, you did say yourself that finances were an issue? But wishing your step daughter the best off luck, she might be behind the 8 ball though if your a tight koont

    You are the one asking very personal questions "end". Take a look here. I think I was quite polite with you. Just asked you one of the questions back. Think about it.

    MIS is a pretty good and well priced international school. It's over on the dark side and fees are 50-75k a term.

    Akson School just off 3rd road in Pattaya is a very good Thai school with a lot of English based lessons. Only about 12k a term fees, I think.
    I would post pictures but life's too short.

    When i was married and living in Nakhon Sawan both my step kids went to the local Thai school. They both turned out all right. The boy is training to be an engineer in the Thai Army and his sister works for Chang in the marketing department.
    From what i seen the kids are a lot more disciplined than they are at UK schools

    Thanks for the tip. I checked out B.E.S.T School, which uses the same Cambridge curricula as the Big Three and have settled on my girl friend's daughter attending there. It's 3 1/2 times cheaper than the Big Three, but without football fields and a swimming pool. Not a problem since our condo's pool is bigger than any of the other schools.
