At UWC Thailand, we see our differences are our commonalities. Our community comprises students, staff, parents, boarders, and house parents from more than 99 nationalities with no dominant culture.
Our school is founded on the fundamental principle of providing a caring, supportive, and joyful environment that allows all individuals to grow. We see the well-being of each and every individual as both a personal and collective responsibility. Each morning, the Head of School or a member of the leadership team greets students as they arrive. Students address school staff using “Kru”, the traditional Thai title for teacher, followed by their first name.
Through an open-minded and thoughtful approach to education, the school aims to develop international and intercultural understanding. We actively encourage our community to engage in and reflect upon discussions across profound differences—locally, regionally and globally—to develop an appreciation of others’ perspectives. In so doing they not only gain an understanding of the diversity that exists within the world, but also our common humanity.
