Sarah P’s comments:  This is a fairly new school which, according to the reviews is located in a good place but is experiencing some growing pains. Also, Thailand is a great place to live but in recent years the cost of living has risen substantially.  Please read further reviews on International School Reviews if you wish to apply.

    • Hi Kipkirui,
      I try to post positions which are open to international applications and, if restricted, I note this in my comments. Sometimes this information is not available, however if an institution is advertising on a listing such as IFLAjobs, then it can be assumed it is open to applications from everywhere. Best of luck, Sarah P.
