International School Eastern Seaboard (ISE)

282 Moo 5, Bowin, Chonburi 20230, Thailand

The rapid development of Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard created a demand for a high quality international school. In response to this demand, the International School Eastern Seaboard (ISE) was developed by

Northbridge Communities and opened in August, 1994. From a modest beginning the school grew to enroll more than 300 students in less than four years. The program offerings and facilities grew during this time to keep pace with the needs of our students and the expectations of the international community. The new upper campus, specially designed with high school students in mind, opened in January 1998.

The International School Eastern Seaboard (ISE) is an English language, coeducational, nonsectarian, college-preparatory day school, enrolling students from pre-kindergarten (3 and 4 year old students) through grade 12. The school provides a comprehensive academic program, including the core subject areas of math, science, social studies/history, and language arts/English, as well as foreign language study, English as a Second Language (ESL), physical education, fine arts and an array of co-curricular activities. ISE strives to be a model of an American style school. All school programs are designed to accommodate students from many nations who come with a variety of educational needs. The addition of the IB program to our current program is a great benefit to students who enroll in the program.

Students who elect not to enroll in the IB program are still able to enroll in regular high school courses. The school has full accreditation by the U.S. based Western Association of Schools and College (WASC)
