Curriculum

Academic Curriculum

The curriculum at Ambassador Bilingual School is based on the overarching Thai Government standards (the Basic Education Core Curriculum B.E.2551) combined with the Californian, American Curriculum for core English subjects, eg. English Language, Mathematics, Science, Physical and Welfare Education from Grade 1-12, are based on an integrated curriculum which combines the Thai National Curriculum with the Californian Curriculum. These standards facilitate the teaching of the sciences in both English and Thai and thereby enhance the understanding of the students.

Students will be tested periodically throughout the school year during class time, these grades, along with subjective and objective observations make up the largest percentage of the grade given.  The children will also be streamed into ESL and TSL classes, if their abilities need to be improved for their grade level. 

Concept

The curriculum at Ambassador Bilingual School is based on the overarching Thai Government standards (the Basic Education Core Curriculum B.E.2551) combined with the Californian, American Curriculum for core English subjects (English Language, Mathematics, and Science).  It is based on the principle that each learner has wisdom, virtue, and is ingrained with the ability to learn and develop to reach his full potential.

Bilingual Teaching

Teaching an international curriculum (based on the curriculums of the USA, UK and Australia) using English and Thai. We use text books and assessment tests from USA and UK for the subjects taught in English. Instruction is in English for English classes, mathematics, science, health, PE (Physical Education). Other subjects are taught in Thai.

ABS school , we teach most of the subjects in English and about 5 hours a week is given for studying in Thai.
