About International School Bangkok (ISB)

ISB first opened as the International Children’s Center on the grounds of the U.S. Embassy in 1951. It was the first international school to open in Thailand and serviced U.S. Embassy families and other expatriates in Bangkok at the time. In 1960, ISB moved from the U.S. Embassy grounds to a large campus on Sukhumvit Soi 15. Seven years later, at the peak of the Vietnam War, when enrollment boomed to over 3500 students, a second campus was opened in Bangsue for a number of years to accommodate the expansion. In the 1980’s, the ISB Board of Trustees had a vision for a school that would be unrivalled in the region, moving to its present location in Nichada Thani, a 90 Rai campus was opened in 1992, with some of the best facilities in the region. 2018 marked the opening of the Environmental Wilderness Campus in Petchaburi Province. 2021 marks the 70th anniversary of ISB as Thailand’s Premier International School.

To this day, ISB remains a nonprofit, independent, and nonsectarian school which is overseen by parents who are members of our school association and elected to our Board of Trustees.

ISB runs a rolling admissions programme to meet the needs of its diverse global community of more than 60 nationalities. For more information on the limited available seats in school, please visit
