SKILLS BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
As a young adult, your child’s life in the secondary programme will see them begin to choose interests they will continue to pursue for years to come. With a broad range of programmes in music, science, arts and language, SBS allows them to blossom in their chosen fields, while also preparing them for the important benchmarks that will determine their university education.
As your child grows, the breadth and quality of our facilities becomes increasingly important to their development, be it our state-of-the art science labs, Olympic-sized swimming pool, advanced Information Technology equipment or well-stocked library.
Our world-class facilities and speciality programmes constitute the perfect environment for the advanced pursuit of process-based learning. Despite looming exams, our secondary programme remains firmly focused on developing your child into a happy and holistic being with a deep thirst for knowledge.
PATH TO TOP UNIVERSITIES
SBS meets Thailand’s academic standards, develops bilingual students and follows the curriculum content for Cambridge’s IGCSE. This approach allows your child to pursue a bright future in Thailand’s top national universities or attend a leading university abroad.
Beyond SBS, bilingualism and experiential learning remain the best guarantee your child won’t just get into the right school, they will also thrive in their university education and beyond.
GREATER SELF-CONTROL AND FOCUS
“The school taught me how to think when under pressure. I just won the Krasae Tennis Camp competition and I want to go pro when I grow up.”
Taentawan Taddeo Majoli Magglioli, 13
MORE CHOICES IN BOTH CULTURES
“Before coming to SBS, I couldn’t speak Thai, since my mom is Spanish and my dad is from Hong Kong. Now, I’ve been a member of Opera Siam for ten years and it’s becoming a career. At SBS, you can make your own choices, like being able to choose a music track.”
Thalassa Ferrand, 15
A COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENT
“I like that we speak multiple languages here. I’m very close to my friends but also to the teachers. SBS really supported me in my go-kart racing and I placed second in the T-Kart Mini World Championship.”
Jakkarin Sirinonthanawech, 16
“I was a shy kid but growing up with a lot of activities taught me to be more self-assured. Now I’m confident in my English and singing skills. Last year, I won the My Achievement Singing Contest and, this year, I was runner-up. I’m also on a science and math track, so I’ll be able to choose anything I want later, from medicine to music.”
Juthaporn Rungpiti, 15
READY FOR CHANGE
SBS is a strong preparatory school for not only university but also, more importantly, for life
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
With SBS, your child is ready for the best of both worlds
- Access to a top university in Thailand
- The option to move abroad to study or work
Either way, your child is prepared for a bright future
in a changing world.
“I’m studying mechanical engineering at Midwestern State University in Texas, and my high GPA was key to getting scholarships to pay for it. I also got an athletic scholarship, and the teachers at SBS really supported me whenever I’d miss class due to a golf tournament. This month, I’m competing in a qualifier for the Thai LPGA where my sister and I will be playing alongside pros.”
Panisara Chimsuti, 19
OPTIONS TO STUDY HERE OR ABROAD
“Studying at SBS gives you more options because of the bilingual programme. You can study in a Thai university or abroad--it’s up to you. Currently, I’m in Rangsit’s bilingual medicine programme and also in a medical internship programme with Rajavithi Hospital.”
Nattaya Wangsupkitkosol, 21
RESULTS YOU CAN COUNT ON
- Placement in the top three national universities
- Higher proficiency scores in both Thai and English
- Higher academic scores than the national average
HIGHER RESULTS THAN NATIONAL AVERAGE
“I’m going to study business finance at Hawaii Pacific University. We started studying at SBS when we were eight years old and the school has been so supportive. I’m also getting both athletic and academic scholarships to cover my tuition, living costs and tournament expenses. SBS has really helped me get where I am.”
Pranisa Chimsuti, 19
READY FOR A GLOBAL WORKPLACE
“I’m studying art and design communication and I’m starting an internship with Wallpaper Magazine, next month. Getting a bilingual education has helped me in so many ways. If I’d gone to a Thai school I’d have difficulties at uni. Sometimes, I have tohelp my Thai friends, actually. But having been at SBS, I really understand both worlds—Thailand, and the West.”
Schwin Suthisuvan, 21
ACCESS TO RANGSIT UNIVERSITY
“Compared to a Thai school, it’s just so much easier to get into Rangsit University’s pharmacology programme coming from SBS.”
Apinan Watcharaphicart, 21
STRONGER ABILITY TO ADAPT TO OTHER CULTURES
“Studying at SBS helped me learn other languages as well. I was in the Chinese and English programme and went on to study medical science at the Zhejiang University School of Medicine, in China. Studying in a bilingual programme prepared me for living abroad and speaking with people from other countries. I was very lucky to study at SBS. It was the first step to developing a good future.”
Tipousa Chuaysai, 25
Good schools deliver a solid basic education. Great schools also prepare you for change.
STRONG LANGUAGE AND THINKING SKILLS
“In a couple of months, I’ll be starting med school at Chulalongkorn University. Getting in was one of the hardest things I’ve accomplished. But I made it, and the high scores I got in English definitely helped make it possible.”
Naphon Upanisakorn, 18
