I Need Info: Bang Na - Primary / Elementary / English Program

Recommended Posts

I may have a solution to get his kid into a private school without the tests. Nothing nefarious, just a good heart. Not EP but it's a good primary Intensive program me thinks. I've no idea costs, but don't think it's pricey. Maybe even EP, possible depending on $$. I'd run into a similar situation a few years back talking with a step father of a girl. So, if the OP wants a lead, message me (MRT line). Not at all certain but I think all schools mentioned save for boarding at wwa and Amnuay Silpa are under 100k.

WoW, Thank you all so much.

All this info will deffenatly help me alot when I go school hunting in March.

 

Thank you Scott, KhaoNiaw and Number 6

Yes it is true, I dont think a full blown international school or a Full Blow EP will be good for her.

But a daily or near daily english class would be awesome.

I am going to start with Rachawinit Bangkaew and St. Joseph Thipawan.

 

Thank

Magnus

In that case, I 'd suggest the St. Joseph Thipawan school. The fees are nothing like the main branch. Or as an alternative I'd go for Rachawinit Bangkaew, near Mega BangNa. A very good state school, encourages creativity. For a young Thai kid, if you don't really need English to be a defining factor, it's a pretty good choice.

Is this the school you are talking about? That is the only school I see near Mega BangNa that sounds like the name you provided. http://www.rwb.ac.th (Ratwinit Bangkaeo School)

First, I want to correct myself. Mater Dei is the second best girl's school in Thailand although it is the most elite. The best is Sattriwittaya.

 

The link is broken but I know this school (I think!!). I passed by it with my students on the way to Concordian Intl for a competition. Noticing just something "different" about the morning buzz and facade of the school I asked my students if it was an ok school and they said ok. I teach at a very good school, the kids take academics and ECs quite seriously.

 

It did strike me though as a very Thai schoo on the outside.

 

But my kids give it a sorta thumbs up. That's saying something.

The Ratwinit Bangkaeo has no Primary education for younger kids. 

 

I ended up going to the concordian int. To get some recomandation and one of them was the Lasalle Chatolic School. We enrolled the girl in the summer program to prepare her for the upcoming school year. However the Head Mistress (prinsipal) was very strict (I am kinda afraid of her 😆) and it took all my convincing skills to even let her reconsider. In the start she gave us a flat out No... the girl propobly does not have the skills to attend this school.

 

Anyway, she is in the summer program now. And the teacher will assest her in a few weeks to see if she is ok to attend for next semester 🤞

 

I am highly considering to hire a Private Toudor for the next 4 weeks to help her prepair. Does anyone know how is the best way to find a Thai Tudor to help out a 7-year old?

Yes, indeed it's a secondary school. Completely slipped my mind the age of your child. I know nothing of LaSalle but definitely stand behind my recommendations inner BKK.

 

Don't worry about the sister, they all like to put up a hard front. She'll do fine if she wants to.

 

Always say hi to the sisters and stop and have a chat. Show interest in the development of your child and the school.

 

Looking at the website, looks like an ok school. Who's to know? Did have half dozen kids 100% on ONET.

 

Honestly, if you want her competitive for university, best she move to a recognized middle then high school.

 

Wise of you to go to Concordian for a bit of advice.

 

Still highly recommending Mater Dei, perhaps 80-100k?? WWA as well up to P6. Both very near BTS stop. Mater Dei is right on top of Chitlom.

 

All the kids I know are M6 or university students. They tutor city center. All the great tutors are around Siam. Anyway, you'll need someone locally. Maybe ask at the school.

 

Good luck
