It is essential to examine what an international school has to offer before you enrol your child. The most pertinent information includes the curriculum offered, the tuition fees, the opening and closing dates, and so on.  Although most people often seek this information from websites, such platforms do not always offer all you need to know. 

If you want to know everything about an institution, you should visit it yourself. However, this is might not be possible if the school is located overseas. In such scenarios, it would serve you best if you communicated to them via email or phone for further enquiry.

The following are the factors you need to look out for before joining a Bangkok international school.

Type of Curriculum Offered
Since each institution has its methodology, it is critical to know the kind of curriculum implemented by an international school. It is advisable to pick the option that offers a universal curriculum to ease the changeover from one nation to another. 

In addition to the curriculum, it is important to evaluate the methods used by a school to assess its students. Most teachers monitor the progress of learners using regular tests, which assists them in formulating better ways of teaching. If an institution is not straightforward on how it gauges students, cross it off your list. 

Teaching Staff
Qualified teaching staff is an indicator that a school offers quality education and vice versa. Before you enrol your kids in a particular school, take time to research their teaching staff. Fortunately, most institutions give this on their websites.

Facilities and Resources
The number and quality of facilities in a school correlate with the quality of education it offers. Before anything, you need to examine the size of the classrooms. Then, you also need to evaluate the adequacy of the resources provided in the libraries and laboratories.

Accreditation from a renowned global agency is a pointer that a school offers quality education. The significance of the accreditation process is to confirm that an institution offers what it says it does. More importantly, competent inspectors oversee the assessment.
