EduCativ Posted August 5, 2020 Share Posted August 5, 2020 American Pacific International School (APIS) was created by Kritsanant Palarit and opened for its first academic year in August 1997. Kritsanant's founding vision was to provide the same opportunities and advantages of a western-style education and boarding program (in a Thai setting), that prepares all students for university-level studies. APIS aims to provide a quality education program for students in Pre Nursery through Grade12, based on international education standards, delivered in the English language through a constructivist approach. The Main Boarding Campus (MBC) was established in 1997, teaching students in Grades 7-10 in a remote setting with both boarding and day school options. This campus has seen many changes over the years, including growth in grade levels to include Grades 1 - 12 and in 2015 the application to become an IBO - Middle Years Program school. In 2000, APIS opened a Kindergarten campus in Chiangmai. This kindergarten campus provided the same mission-driven education for our youngest students in Nursery through Kindergarten 3. In 2009, both campuses adopted the IBO Primary Years Program as a framework for curriculum delivery. In 2014, due to the Kindergarten campus's growth, a new purpose-built facility was created and now serves students from Pre Nursery (PN) through Grade 5. The new campus is referred to as American Pacific International School Primary (APISP). Today, APIS and APISP host over 400 students across both campuses, PN - Gr. 12, with more than 20 nationalities representing our diverse student population. The school continues to remain a mission-driven school, focused on internationally-minded, happy, life-long learners.
