Welcome to TCIS

TCIS (Thai-Chinese International School) is a pre-kindergarten-grade 12 international school in Samutprakarn located near Bangkok and close to Mega Banga and Suvarnabhumi.

Founded in 1995 TCIS is an American curriculum school with a focus on trilingual education. The curriculum is student centered and dynamic. We challenge students to collaborate, communicate, be creative, and to think critically. Our educators implement learning experiences that allow students to master the 21st century skills necessary for future success.

All core subject classes are taught in English by fluent native speakers while Thai and Chinese (Mandarin and both traditional and simplified) language classes are taught by native Thai and Taiwanese teachers. TCIS has separate elementary, middle and high school facilities. TCIS offers after school academic, athletic and enrichment programs.

TCIS graduates received over $1,000,000 in university scholarships in 2018 and 100% of graduates were accepted to top universities in North America, Europe and Asia.

TCIS Smile Club, along with the alumni execoms, visited the Operation Smile Thailand headquarters today to make a donation. The donation consists of all the fundraising events from the past two years combined. The Smile Club is proud to be able to donate money for a total of 3 surgeries (72,300 Baht) for children with facial deformities. We appreciate all the support from TCIS students and teachers. The Accelerated Reader (AR) Program is a great opportunity for everyone. It helps students improve their reading and vocabulary. Reading is very important because it makes you more familiar with words you have never encountered before, and you can use them in your writing. The TCIS English Department implemented Accelerated Reader in the entire Middle School with great success this year. We have had numerous students read over 10 novels and passed full comprehension tests for these novels. Some students read as many as 50 novels. This program is truly impressive, and we are proud of each and every one of our Middle School students. Below are the top three students from each grade.  The number out beside their name is the number of Accelerated Reader points they earned this year.  Pa (Grade 8) was the Middle School top finisher and read and passed AR tests on 43 books and most of those were on high school and college level novels. Boing (Grade 5) was in second place in middle school and read 49 books this school year.  Nano (Grade 8) was in 3rd place overall and read 49 novels. Reading is the backbone to a successful high school experience, and we know that each one of these students will be a superstar in High School.  Congrats to each and every one of these amazing students and to our entire Middle School! Thank you to Ms. Tracy, Mr. Victor, Mr. Sean and Mr. Michael for working on this program all year!
