Lamai International School

Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to Lamai International School located on the beautiful island of Koh Samui in Thailand. At LIS, we follow the standard Cambridge Curriculum, teaching all core curricular subjects. We take pride in not only following this standard curriculum but implementing additional influential learning experiences into our teaching methods. We have put together a wonderful team made up of teachers from all over the world. They all possess special interests, qualities, and educational backgrounds that we have been able to utilize in our teaching practices here at LIS. At LIS, we feel it is important to teach students the knowledge they need to succeed as well as to provide them with a more diverse knowledge of the world around them and how to grow socially, emotionally and physically into a generation we can all be proud of. At LIS, we are not only an educational institution, we are a family that offers the support and guidance needed to ensure all our students feel like they can accomplish anything they put their minds to. At LIS, we strongly believe that every student matters and every moment counts!

I would like to express my gratitude towards your interest in LIS, and I kindly invite you to visit our school or contact me directly to learn even more about what our school has to offer. I look forward to meeting new perspective parents and students and introducing you to our happy family here at Lamai International School.

Education for Sustainable Development Program

Our mission is to provide students the knowledge, wisdom, and hands on practices to support an overall healthy lifestyle through obtaining a healthy body, a healthy mind, and a healthy environment.

About the Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Program

LIS has implemented an Education for Sustainable Development program into the curriculum. ESD encourages changes in knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to enable a more sustainable and just society for all. It empowers learners to make informed decisions and take responsible actions towards environmental integrity, economic viability, a just society, and healthy living practices.

The LIS ESD program is based on the UN Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and includes an important component on Socio-Emotional Learning. Within this program, our students will develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values necessary to address sustainable development challenges. By working on a holistic approach to Sustainable Development, and with the involvement of parents and the local community, LIS aims at forming responsible citizens committed to a better world and a healthier self.

At LIS we believe in learning as a holistic process that goes beyond academic milestones. We want our students to use their brain, hearts, and hands to develop significant connections. We want them to put their knowledge into practice and act in ways that generate positive actions. We aim at nurturing a generation of students that are kind and empathetic to themselves, others, and the world.
