St Stephen's International School SIS, founded in 1998, is a private co-educational international school, serving the Thai and international communities. The school is accredited by the Worldwide Education Service WES from the UK, is licensed by the Thai Ministry of Education and is an approved candidate for Accreditation with ECIS and NEASC.
The St Stephen's International School’s philosophy is based on ‘Leadership in the making’ and is guided by three main concepts: East Meets West - The Best of Both Worlds, Learning by Doing, A Disciplined and Healthy Lifestyle.
The curriculum is founded on the English National Curriculum, key stages and programmes of study, although the most appropriate features are utilized to suit students’ needs. Other international and national curricular are used to provide breadth and an international approach, including the Thai Curriculum, which also provides the foundation and structure for the teaching of Thai at all levels and ensures students may transfer successfully to and from Thai schools and universities. The high standard of maths and science teaching in Thailand adds strength to the curriculum. Mandarin is also taught throughout the school. Culture and cultural awareness, manners and etiquette are also stressed. It is expected that the Middle and High School curriculums will eventually lead to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education IGCSE and the Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE).
The faculty at St Stephen's International School are recruited from many different nationalities including the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and from within Asia.

Day-to-day operations and school development are the responsibilities of the School Director, supported by a Deputy Director who pays particular attention to timetable, school-wide events and staff duties, and an Assistant Director responsible for quality assurance, including accreditation. Heads of Section for Early Years, Elementary and Middle School, together with a Curriculum Co-ordinator, oversee the quality of teaching and learning.
