Panyaden International School

Values-based Education | Green School | Academic Excellence

Panyaden International School is a community of international and Thai staff who are passionate about providing a unique programme of learning for our pupils in a bilingual, sustainable environment set amongst the natural surroundings of northern Thailand. We share a vision for our students which is based on our core values of academic excellence, values-based education and green school approach. Our values-based education uses Buddhist principles to support our community as they work towards The Panyaden Profile.

We believe our teachers are our greatest asset. Therefore, our highest priority is the recruitment of effective, well-qualified and compassionate staff. We are looking to recruit teachers who can constantly contribute towards improving the educational programmes we provide in line with our school vision, mission and philosophy.

Panyaden is a unique school offering staff an unparalleled opportunity to develop themselves, both as educators and also as people. Therefore, we offer a package which includes both professional and personal development opportunities. Working at Panyaden is a life-changing experience and we are currently recruiting for open-minded educators to join our expanding team.

Realising Potential: The Panyaden Profile

A Panyaden community member is a well-balanced, thoughtful individual with strong learning skills. They are determined to keep learning in order to bring happiness and success to themselves, their peers and society. The Panyaden graduate has used the 12 Wise Habits to build a strong foundation for life, academically and emotionally, and is committed to perfecting them throughout life.

Are you ready to make the leap away from the norm towards a new vision for education?

At Panyaden we aim to cultivate a way of life, not just an academic education. Success in life, whether in academic study, career or family life, is derived not only from a sharp intellect but also from the ability to communicate skillfully, overcome difficulties, manage one’s moods and makes choices based on wisdom, compassion and understanding. Our efforts as teachers must be focused equally on helping children develop inner values as well as responsibility towards the world around them. Our team is dedicated to a conscious approach to supporting behaviours based on developing intrinsic motivation and self-awareness. To this end, we have created an atmosphere, an environment and a curriculum that are in harmony with the Buddhist path to wisdom and happiness.

Our expanding school currently offers education from 2 to 14 years, with students up to 16 years joining us for the 2020-21 academic year, followed by 16 - 18-year-old pupils in 2021. Panyaden students experience a holistic education combining an international standard curriculum (UK, IPC, IMYC and IB) with life skills and meditation, ‘My Project’ and social contribution projects set in our natural bamboo and earth campus. Imagine a school where children pick fruit from trees at break time and plant the rice that later fills their plate. If you are ready to work together towards a new vision for education we look forward to receiving your application.
