MBf Taylors Limited
The company operates two International Schools and an English Programme School. The International Schools, Garden International School Rayong and Garden International School Bangkok (collectively known as GIS) are members of the Federation of British International Schools in South East Asia and East Asia (FOBISSEA) while the English Programme School (Rayong English Programme School – ‘REPS’) in Ban Chang, Rayong is a pioneer in bilingual education in the Eastern Seaboard.
REPS offers a bilingual education in English and Thai to children from Kindergarten 1 to Mathayom (Secondary) 2. REPS is the first licensed English Programme (EP) school in the Rayong Province. REPS runs using the Thai curriculum but with a strong emphasis on English language fluency. Students are therefore educated with a unique balance of Thai values and culture and an understanding of the wider world. The school currently has about 500 students with an average class size of just 20.
Garden International School Bangkok and Rayong are dynamic and innovative schools following the English National Curriculum with campuses in both Bangkok and Rayong. GIS respects the individuality of each child, striving to provide a stimulating and nurturing environment while aiming for the highest educational standards through fully qualified and motivated teachers and small class sizes. Currently, GIS Bangkok offers education from its Foundation Stage Unit catering for children from the age of 2, through to its Secondary School where it offers International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). GIS Rayong offers education from Foundation stage right up to International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma level.
Every effort is made to ensure the education received will suit the needs of the individual, and to equip them for continuing studies, be it a return to the education system in their country of origin, or into higher education in Thailand.
MBf Taylors is proud, not only of the high academic standards it achieved, but also of the recognition it have received from the community for promoting the education of the 'whole child'.
The total student population of these MBf Taylors schools is over 1,200 students.
