There are many Prep schools in Bangkok, Thailand; and you will most likely be happy with any one of them you choose, however, Bangkok is the hub for them and offers the top of the crop of Prep schools in Thailand.  Two-thirds of the Preparatory schools in Thailand are located in Bangkok.

In Bangkok’s Prep school system you will have a Kindergarten through Grade 12 education, which offers American and IB prep as well. (Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate (IB) is a non-profit foundation, which offers four high quality and challenging educational programs for a worldwide community of schools.)

In Bangkok, you will find schools accredited by the WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) and many are members of ISAT (International Schools Association of Thailand) and EARCOS (East Asia Regional Council of Schools).  Some schools even offer their own curriculums, some of which may be tailor-made for what you and your child are looking for.  So be sure to have a gander at one of those at least.
