The success of Global English School lies in that it is a true bilingual school. Our staff consists of both native Thai speakers and native English speakers. 80% of the courses are taught in English and 20% in Thai (Thai language and Thai social studies). This progressive model meets the needs of parents who want their children to become fluent English speakers but not at the expense of Thai culture and language. The bilingual program is less expensive than International schools and provides students with quality education in their home community. It is also a mission driven entity that pursues excellence in all areas as it strives to educate the whole person.
Small classes, native English speaking instructors, and Thai teacher aides only in kindergarten assure excellent educational quality. Class sizes are limited to 30 and our overall student to teacher ratio is approximately 15 to 1. The continual recruitment program at GES results in very good teachers who are dedicated to the school, with about 50% of them returning for a second year and some staying up to five years.
In 2009, GES has reassessed many of its programs and its entire curriculum. Over twenty native English speakers from the USA and Canada are now on staff. Since 1997, there has been a major renovation project every year: the administration building which once housed the entire school and staff quarters is now the second smallest of five buildings set among a lush green space close to the Nonthaburi market. The school has grown from one small classroom to about 30, including computer and science labs and English and Thai libraries. Consultants are working with teachers to rework the entire curriculum through grade nine this year, in anticipation of receiving full reaccreditation from the Ministry of Education.
