Why happy children become empowered & successful learners

Why happy & empowered children become successful learners

St. Andrews, Dusit offers young learners a happy school environment that ensures they become confident and capable of reaching their full potential.

The happy community spirit that exists at St. Andrews International School, Dusit lies at the heart of our success in teaching students to become successful lifelong learners. Our school understands the importance of happiness in relation to learning and how it leads to feelings of empowerment that motivate children to want to engage in their education.

As a community school the teachers and administrators at St. Andrews Dusit works together with children and parents to create an environment where students are happy and gain confidence in themselves. When a child feels happy and confident they feel empowered and are more inclined to engage in the learning process. When an individual is engaged and interested in the task before them, they will naturally feel better and work more productively.

Empowered students:

  • Feel valued
  • Believe they are capable
  • Grow confidence
  • Make informed choices
  • Become independent
  • take responsibility
  • Learn from their mistakes
  • Engage in a meaningful way
  • Understand the benefits of learning

At St. Andrews Dusit we provide a positive approach to learning and a broad and exciting curriculum that enables each individual student to make significant progress in learning. We recognise every child is unique and empower each individual student to challenge themselves in all areas of their education and to achieve their full potential.

‘The happiest community empowering every individual to achieve outstanding growth.’”

St. Andrews Dusit: Guiding Statement

St. Andrews International School, Dusit offers an excellent education to children from both international and our local Thailand communities. Our programmes are based on the English National Curriculum and we work to meet the needs of the whole child in order for them to realise their full potential in academic, social, emotional, cultural and physical development. This is achieved through a balanced curriculum that encompasses both traditional values and modern technology. 

At St. Andrews, Dusit we actively place an emphasis on the individual, supporting our school ethos, which is caring, respectful and tolerant of differences in abilities, needs, cultures and religions.
