Curriculum

The curriculum at PAIS Is primarily derived from the standards and benchmarks of the State of Massachusetts In the United States. Some of the standards and benchmarks from the Massachusetts model have been modified In order to be suitable for an International school In the Kingdom of Thailand.

PAIS teachers Implement the curriculum through modern, research-based, student-centered methodologies. Including Inquiry and project-based units of study. All PAIS teachers are highly qualified and come to PAIS with previous experience In their field of education.

We use high quality, current textbooks from a variety of Western publishers to support the learning that occurs In our classes. The content of these textbooks matches the standards and benchmarks In place at PAIS. Textbooks for the study of Thai, Arabic and Chinese languages have also been carefully selected to support learning In those subject areas. In addition to textbooks, PAIS teachers produce a wide variety of content materials that suit the learning needs of their students. The PAIS library also provides considerable content resources for teachers.
