How our students discover their passions

All of the members of the NIST community, past and present, see education as a force that can enlighten and transform. Through learning we grow individually and collectively, and have the opportunity to positively impact those around us. This belief permeates our school, and for over two decades, thousands of NIST parents and students, and hundreds of teachers, have carried it with them around the globe.

We Are Inclusive & Diverse

The ability to communicate and work with others from differing backgrounds and cultures is one of the most highly sought skills in the global workplace. In the Bangkok international school community, students come from nearly every nation around the globe, and NIST is no exception. Our highly diverse student body represents over 60 nationalities. While Thai students form the largest group at approximately 25.3%, we have significant populations of students from North America, Australia and Europe, as well as many from elsewhere in Asia, South America and Africa.

We are Service Minded

At NIST students take the lead in proposing, developing and launching service projects. This leads not only to greater learning opportunities, but also to greater attachment and commitment to the projects.

Service at NIST empowers students to connect with others in order to take action to enrich themselves, our communities and the world. It also offers an invaluable opportunity for them to engage with global issues at a local level, make connections with one another and outside community members, and develop the skills that will enable them to become successful global citizens. We are proud to offer over 20 service groups, co-led by student leaders and adult mentors. These sustainable groups address issues ranging from environmental protection to poverty alleviation to human rights advocacy.

We are Research Driven

NIST’s aspirations and vision of education do not rely on models of the past, on the accumulation of knowledge or the memorization of facts. We see learning as a catalyst, a force that will inexorably bring about positive change, and help all cultures and nations find solutions to our common problems through innovation and passion. Our community believes NIST can be a model, a bright example of what diverse individuals can accomplish when they use learning to work together toward a common goal.
