International school Salary

Recommended Posts

China's salaries are dependent on qualifications. International schools range though from 15kRMB to 25kRMB. I know of a few people making 30k RMB a month but they are the exceptions.

The exchange rate is about 5 baht to 1 rmb.

Science, Calculus, Physics, Economics teachers have the most opportunities there.

American School of Bangkok just offered my friend 95k/month. Thats normal for top international schools. International schools that have all thai students give the same salary as thai private schools. About 60k/month depending in negotiation skills, CV, health plan etc..

International school salaries in general:

Low teired schools- 40-70k per month

Middle teir schools- 60-100/120 per month (including housing benefits)

Top teir- 150-200+++ per month (including housing benefits)

Some schools also offer round trip air fare, shipping expenses, settling in allowance, insurance for family, yearly bonuses etc.

What tier would Kevalee International School fall under? Low, middle, or top tier?

What about Ramkhamhaeng Advent International School?

And regarding those monthly rates, is that before or after taxes?

Meaning that if a teacher is making 60,000 baht per month at a mid-tier school, is that the money he walks away with or do they TAX that 60,000 baht figure? AND IF THEY DO TAX THE 60,000 baht, HOW MUCH would he get?

If the school is legitemately claiming the proper amount paid and paying taxes properly then it depends on the bracket you are in.

From my experience, if you are over 80k per month, expect to pay 20-30% in tax.

just as a matter of interest, what sort of rates are the norm in China?

It varies greatly depending on the region (as a result of cost of living). An American friend of mine was earning $4,000/month + accommodation paid for in Shanghai.

He and his wife recently moved to an international school in Bangkok. They are receiving 90k baht a month + 15k/month housing allowance (each).

Another friend of mine earns $2,500/month ($3,000+ with overtime) in a city in the south which has a very low cost of living (he is not a certified teacher).

From what I hear salaries at the top schools are on par. The difference is that in China there seem to be a hell of a lot more perks and potential for extra money, bonuses, etc.

Well, the answers, mates?

On 60K, if there are no deductions, is a touch under 5K a month tax.
