Lanna International School Thailand is located in the Hang Dong area of Chiang Mai, close to the city’s international airport. The school teaches the English National Curriculum, examinations through the Cambridge International Examinations Board, and all lessons taught in English. Early years through to ‘A’ Levels are taught at the school, one of the longest established international schools in the city, having opened in 1993.
The school currently has students representing an impressive 34 different countries and has a diverse range of nationalities amongst the teaching and support staff. Additional languages are taught in Thai, French, German and Chinese to give students an excellent understanding of foreign languages.

Of course, students receive a balanced education with everyone encouraged to participate in sports, and everyone’s emotional wellbeing is looked after.
The school has dramatically increased in popularity in recent years, which resulted in a new primary campus opening in 2018, with the extensive redevelopment of many of the facilities at the original campus currently ongoing. The facilities are excellent and continually improving with the science laboratories and sporting facilities of the highest order. The school plans to move to new premises in time for the start of the 2023/24 school year.
