What Our Community Says
The first day I came to APIS as a 3rd grader, I could not speak English at all. I'm forever thankful for APIS for being the place that developed my English language skills when I was a student, the language that I use everyday now and also led me to so many amazing experiences with this leverage. The friendships and memories that were created here will always be unforgettable. APIS has given me the confidence and critical thinking skills so important in today's world. APIS was and will always be my second home.
Teachers at APIS are very friendly. Students and teachers easily establish a relationship with one another, creating a very healthy and positive learning environment.

I like that I can learn a lot of things while having fun. To be happy in and out of school. The teachers and staff are so kind.

One of the reasons I initially selected APIS for my first child, over twenty years ago, was for the dedication of the staff. My initial meeting with Ajarn Ladda was during Songkran holiday, and she was on holiday in Lampang. Ajarn Ladda cut short her holiday and drove back to Chiang Mai to show me the school. That showed me how dedicated the staff was and I knew if the teachers followed the same path, APIS was the school for my children.
