Benefits a community school can bring to a child

St. Andrews Dusit: why this special community school can benefit your child

St. Andrews International School Dusit (St. Andrews Dusit) is a welcoming community school for children aged 2 to 11 years, located within the beautiful district of Dusit, in the city of Bangkok. We offer our students an inclusive and personalised education and are extremely proud of our diverse community of students, teachers and parents, who originate from over 20 different nations around the world.

As a community school we work as a cohesive body so that we are able to impart a feeling of connection and belonging to every child in our care. This positive community spirit enables us to work with students in a collaborative environment to great success in all areas, both inside the classroom and during after school events.

As a small community school, we have created a learning environment at St. Andrews Dusit that consistently encourages cooperation and unity that benefits both students and the school in numerous ways.

Benefits of a community school:

Wellbeing: the love, care and support created within a community school enhances learning outcomes and positive wellbeing for every child. At St. Andrews Dusit we actively encourage parent involvement in school events, fundraisers and our Parent Teacher Group (PTG), and our open door policy allows ongoing direct contact for parents and students with class teachers, Key Stage leaders and even the Head of School.

Shared responsibilities: within a connected school community a shared responsibility is created amongst the educators, parents and administrators that results in improved educational services and outcomes.

Improvement to personalised learning: when a school community understands the learning abilities and homelife of students, teachers can create the best learning programme for each individual child.

Pride & motivation: as a result of students and teachers feeling a sense of pride in their school, the whole community is motivated to learn and teach with passion.

Collaboration: a community school puts a focus on collaboration that improves accountability and positive relationships.
