Testimonial from H.E. Mr. Allan McKinnon, Australian Ambassador to Thailand

Welcome to St. Mark’s Australian International School, Bangkok

 

Celebrating our 20th anniversary in 2020, St. Mark’s Australian International School is the first and only international school in Thailand to be licensed by the Government of Western Australia Ministry of Education to provide a truly authentic Year 11 and 12 Australian Matriculation program with a direct pathway to Australian universities, as well as, to leading universities around the world.    

 

We are truly different from all other international schools, as we set our education standard high, operating under the professional support and accreditation of the Australian Ministry of Education.  We are one of only very few international schools in Thailand to operate at the Ministry level, where the Ministry regulates our performance against the annual compliance reviews, and parents can be sure of the education standard we provide. 

  

Upon completion of Year 11 & 12, our graduates are awarded an internationally recognised pre-university diploma, the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE).  This diploma is currently gaining popularity in several countries, including China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka.  

 

The School Curriculum and Standards Authority, on behalf of the Government of Western Australia, oversees the quality implementation of the WACE program.  Concurrently, students also will receive the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank), which will enable them to gain direct admission to all Australian universities, as well as to all leading universities worldwide.   

 

From Early Years on through to secondary, each student is provided with a structured learning environment best suited to their developmental and learning needs where student individuality is valued and each one is allowed to develop his or her own voice. Students are encouraged to develop their leadership and organisational skills in a supportive and stimulating environment in which effort and excellence are recognised and highly valued.

 

As a tri-lingual School of Mathematics and Science, we have the expertise in developing your child, with interests and pursuits in these areas.

   

We believe that the future provides promising avenues for competent young people who possess skills in several languages including English, Mandarin, and Thai. Today's young people not only need to have language skills but also possess good cognitive skills and be individuals of fine moral character who are physically fit and optimistic about life. These are the primary values that St. Mark's tries to develop in our students, hoping that students will become successful and valuable citizens of tomorrow's world. At St. Mark's International School, we aim to challenge and inspire each student and help develop the necessary skills and confidence to enable students to strive towards achieving their personal goals and to contribute to the wider community.

 

We are firmly committed to providing the best possible learning environment. We utilise a modified Australian-Singaporean curriculum, combining the renowned Australian English curriculum with rigorous Singaporean mathematics, science, and Mandarin, providing a "best of both worlds" environment for our students. Our students are encouraged to develop a lifelong love of learning. We help them to develop confidence, resilience, and self-esteem in an environment which encourages respect for the individual, together with tolerance and understanding of others.

 

Opportunities and choices abound in the twenty-first century and today's young people face a myriad of decisions about their futures. At St. Mark’s International School, we seek to give young students the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make their own choices, leading them to a diverse range of tertiary courses and careers, and preparing them to meet the exciting challenges ahead in the future.

 

An excellent education is the best gift we can give our young people today. We warmly invite you to see what St. Mark's International School has to offer your child.
