The name Panyadee is derived from the combination of the Thai words for good wisdom. Literally translated Panya means wisdom and Dee means good. Since its opening in 2005 Panyadee has evolved from a single classroom for eight students into a stunning educational facility with the main intention being to provide children with the best available education.
The school now boasts over 45 classrooms with Cambridge certified science and computer labs. Our school is situated on the Chaweng Noi hillside on over 7 rai of land and it is separated over three different campuses to ensure your child is with other students of a similar age.
At Panyadee, we believe that your child deserves the best and we aim to provide excellence in terms of the learning opportunities provided for them within school. Our staff are highly trained and totally committed to working with your child to achieve the highest possible standards.
In order to achieve the very best, our children must be confident that school and home are working together to celebrate achievements, to support them through times of difficulty and to encourage good behaviour. We must nurture them with care so that they grow into responsible, well educated, caring pupils.
All year groups are lead by a qualified teacher with English as their first language. At Panyadee the importance of the Thai language and culture is not overlooked. Thai lessons are compulsory for all students, with first language and second language classes, and all Thai lessons are conducted by Thai teachers.
Panyadee endeavours to develop the intellectual, aesthetic, moral, physical, social and emotional potential of the students. The school atmosphere fosters the allegiance of its students to their cultural heritage, and promotes respect and tolerance between students and teachers of all cultures.
