About Us

We are opening in November, 2011 as a Montessori-based learning center for 3-6 year olds. This is a pilot program with official opening scheduled for May, 2012, the beginning of the Thai school year. The school's mission is to provide a quality education in a multicultural environment that includes at least 30% scholarship students from Shan (Burmese) refugee villages. Others will come from Thai or Western backgrounds.

The school is located in one of Thailand's most beautiful valleys, surrounded by mountains and filled with rice paddies. It is known as a tourist mecca and supports a large ex-Pat community, giving Pai a mulitcultural atmosphere. The area is noted for its many outdoor activities including hiking, biking, white-water rafting and elephant riding as well visiting local hot springs, caves and Hill Tribe villages.
