“Learning is a never-ending process. Those who wish to advance in their work must constantly seek more knowledge, or they could lag behind and become incompetent.” -King Bhumibol, 1961 Royal Address

Why Is Buds Expanding?

Buds International School has had a longtime history of high standards with an emphasis on quality education and excellent teaching practices, preparing our students to be a significant factor adapting into your international community. 

We are very excited to announce our new venture starting phase one of our new American run primary school. Moving forward into this new project we will be carrying our traditions and core values. We have a top rated California common core school curriculum.

We will be offering grades K- 8, school visas and a variety of after school activities, sports and field trips.

About Buds International Primary

  Buds International School Phuket is the oldest established child care facility in Phuket. At the new Buds Primary International School, we continue this high standard of education for grades 1-8. This boutique international school in Chalong, Phuket is now located in a brand new facility designed specifically as a primary school facility in order to provide your child with the best possible learning environment and room to grow. We cater to International and Thai children between the ages of 2 and 15 years old. We are open Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm with extra English and Thai classes from 3:00 to 4:00 pm and aftercare to 5 pm is also available if needed. Emphasis is placed on teaching your children at the same level as the American Common Core standards. We also strive to model how to get along with and communicate with children of their own age from different cultural backgrounds; as well as how to communicate with a diverse and dedicated staff. At the primary level we continue to create a strong foundation for the student’s future education, with the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and physical education, in order to prepare them for secondary education. We try very hard to make your child’s stay at Buds International School Phuket a happy and fulfilling experience. Our goal is to make your child’s learning experience as enjoyable as possible so that they develop a lifelong love for learning. We are conveniently located just off Chaofa East road in Chalong, near the Phuket zoo.

   We welcome all prospective parents to call ahead to set up a personal tour of our new school facilities. We currently have a very low ratio of children to staff to insure that your child is always encouraged and will be shown a premium level of attention. While our facilities were created to facilitate a large student population we choose to limit our classes to 18 students per teacher. All of our staff is personally chosen based on their ability to connect with the children and ability to show strong teaching ability. All of our Thai teachers speak English and both they and the school are licensed by the Phuket Province. Our foreign teachers are all native English speakers with at least a bachelor’s university degree and a TEFL certification.
