Our Educational Mission
The global mission of the United World College movement is to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. At UWC Thailand, we aim to realise this mission by delivering a mindful, diverse education underpinned by our belief in the connection between a “Good Heart, Balanced Mind, Healthy Body”. We utilise the International Baccalaureate curriculum as our academic foundation and employ world-class teachers to create an exceptional learning community.
A Mission-Centric, Mindful Education
Underpinning the International Baccalaureate framework, all UWC schools also share a common mission and set of values – at the centre of which is the creation of a deliberately diverse community. Learning in a diverse community helps create opportunities for students to appreciate multiple perspectives, to understand the power of collaboration and communication in all its forms, and to experience first-hand that our similarities far outweigh our differences.
In addition, UWC Thailand is considered UWC’s pioneer in embedding Social-Emotional Learning and Mindfulness into our curriculum. Under the direction of our Mindfulness Mentor, our staff, students, and parents develop their ability to think and act mindfully using time and strategies inside and outside the classroom.
In addition to a united mission and common set of values, each UWC operates uniquely, with a distinct local and regional identity.
To be a transformational IB school with a learning community rooted in compassionate action. We view the understanding of our minds, our bodies, and our emotions as a key life skill; fostering the development of our students by tending to both intrapersonal awareness and interpersonal sensitivity in order to create a positive and international school culture. Our aim is to cultivate genuine happiness. In an increasingly interdependent world, we treat others and the planet with respect, kindness and consideration, helping even in the smallest of ways.
