I looked at that school for my 3 year old but it's not English speaking, it has an ELT programme and 80% of the teaching is in Thai.
Facilities semed very good compared to the other places I visited too, probably the best of the bunch.

My son is 9 years old and as been at Satit for the last few years. The problem with the school is now there are not enough teachers and to many students. Therefore the standard of 1 on 1 teaching as declined. My son is an average student with a good report. He as tried two entrance exams for other local schools and as been told is standard of education is not high enough to join there schools.
Satit is not the school it was. As long as it is run as a busness they will just enrol more students.

MY 6 yr old goes there, her 3rd year there,they now have an english program separate to thai program.its 100,000 a year compared to thai 44,000,
At the moment plenty of english teachers for the smaller amount of english program students.
I'am happy with the thai program and the amount of english she gets in 1st class,
Maybe change later.
I fell sorry for the thai parents who get the english homework and car'nt show there kids,
interesting point about the entrance exam for other schools.
I want my daughter the learn to read and write thai before i take her and infant son back to oz in a year or two,she already does the thai well.
hope that helps...i do hate how the thais dont have sport competion between schools or inhouse,,,like oz and england,etc.
