Schools In Buriram

14 posts in this topic

Currently my son is attending an English-language kindergarten in Bangkok, but next year will start attending a Thai school. I can't afford an international school, but also I want him to be able to read/write Thai and learn the Thai curriculum with perhaps some extra English classes on Saturdays.

Perhaps this will be in Buriram, so I need to collect info on schools in Buriram. Are there any good public schools there, or perhaps some reasonably-priced private schools ? Any with some classes in English (is this a silly question) ?

Any and all information, especially personal experiences and recommendations would be appreciated.

In Buri-Ram there is North-Eastern and Marie-Anusorn, both private schools and not expensive.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that's too far away from town

Thanks for the suggestions. Do you have any personal experiences with these schools ?

I found a website for Marie-Anusorn School, but unfortunately it's all in Thai. However, I think I've walked by this school - is it the one downtown with exercise equipment on the sidewalk and across from the shop selling school uniforms and supplies ? My wife or I will have to check this one out personally.

I couldn't find any info on North-Eastern - can you give me any more details ?

Sure I can. Our son have been in them both. Marie Anusorn is located just ouside town, on the way to Satuk, and North Eastern is located on the new ring-road around town.

Our son went to Marie for the first 6 years, then we moved him to Norh-Eastern when that opened last year.

It is my wiew that Marie is better for the first years of school, nursery and up to 5 or 6th grade, then North-Eastern the rest of the way. There is typical 30-40 students in each class in both schools.

Is the school named North Eastern any relation to the school they are constructing in Surin with the same name?

There is a first time fee, I think it is 10.000baht + the normal rate (I can check it out for you) and there is English classes, the school is Catholic by the way.

thanks for the info, please sheck what the regular fees are.

I thought it might be a Catholic school, does that mean they also give religious instruction ? (Don't really want that)

No fanatic teaching, they do have a church there, and the head-teacher is a sister, but I havent had any problems in that regard.

I will check the fee and get back to you. How old is the kid ??

Jacky will be 6 years old in December. He has been attending an English-speaking nursery/kindergarten in Bangkok since January 2006.

At this point it doesn't look like their are any decent schools that you can consider bilingual in Buriram or Surin. I will probably end up enrolling our son in a private Thai school in surin and teach his basic English Math Social studies and science in english at home. I can purchase the books from Best in pattaya.
