In commitment to the school motto of “Good Heart, Balanced Mind, Healthy Body”, UWC Thailand, a non-profit international
school on the beautiful island of Phuket offers a holistic, transformative, and rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum
education from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12, including both day and boarding students.
A Mission-Centric, Mindful Education
Underpinning the International Baccalaureate framework, all UWC schools also share a common mission and set of values – at the centre of which is the creation of a deliberately diverse community. Learning in a diverse community helps create opportunities for students to appreciate multiple perspectives, to understand the power of collaboration and communication in all its forms, and to experience first-hand that our similarities far outweigh our differences.
In addition, UWC Thailand is considered UWC’s pioneer in embedding Social-Emotional Learning and Mindfulness into our curriculum. Under the direction of our Mindfulness Mentor, our staff, students, and parents develop their ability to think and act mindfully using time and strategies inside and outside the classroom.
In addition to a united mission and common set of values, each UWC operates uniquely, with a distinct local and regional identity.
The synergies between this model and the International Baccalaureate curriculum help us to curate a robust yet flexible educational journey for our students. By fostering our students’ own desire for life-long learning and equipping them with a set of tools they can use to grow and succeed, UWC Thailand empowers students in order to tap into their greatest potential.
