Curriculum

We offer the British-based International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which will lead through middle school to the International Baccalaureate Examination.

At Silver Fern International School we believe:

  • The student is the foundation of the learning process so education must encompass the development of the whole individual with the school’s emphasis on academic, physical, social and creative growth.
  • As all children do not learn in the same way, allowances must be made for differences in learning through a differentiated programme of instruction.
  • Education must foster independent thinking, critical analysis and an appreciation and understanding of difference.
  • A safe and caring environment is essential to academic success and the school is a place where students learn to respect others, accept responsibility, exhibit sound values and good behaviour.
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT) must be an essential part of the school curriculum and be used daily by students and teachers.

Thai language culture

The Thai language and culture curriculum at Silver Fern supports and relates to students and corresponds to the school’s mission aimed at creating positive attitudes towards the Thai language and culture and strengthens the awareness of the value of the language.

For Thai national students five 50 minute classes per week are scheduled to enable student to:

  • Develop skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing Thai language and grammar rules.
