English schools in Asia
Concordian International School offers an immersion program through two target languages, English and Chinese, while supporting the development of Thai.
Our research based immersion program focuses on students not only acquiring language skills but also developing the capacity to communicate in meaningful ways. By integrating language and content, learning becomes an integral part of a child's social and cognitive development.
Our ideals focus on every student becoming independent, creative, and critical thinkers, and lifelong learners. Concordian students learn to relate acquired knowledge not only to everyday life but also to the outside world.
The school is an authorized International Baccalaureate school for the primary years program (PYP) and middle years program (MYP). We are applying for IB Diploma authorization for grades 11 and 12 to begin in August of 2008. Currently, CIS serves students through grade 10, we will be adding grades 11 and 12 within the next two years.
The classroom environment is geared towards an inquiry approach to learning and encourages "hands-on" investigations, independent learning and the development of critical and creative thinking skills.
The IB-MYP offers the highest quality education available on an international level. It is excellent preparation for the rigorous IB Diploma program offered in the eleventh and twelfth grades.
At the heart of Concordian lies the belief that we all have an obligation to question what it means to be ethical and responsible members of our global society. While the school promotes academic excellence we are also mindful of nurturing our young people to become moral and intellectual leaders. We pride ourselves on providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere for both children and adults alike.
