Hua Hin Welcomes a New International School

Da Vinci International School (DVIS), an accredited international school,
is set to become a window to the world of quality education.

DVIS takes great pride in addressing the development of the whole child, including all aspects of the skill set students need to succeed in the 21st century (intellectual, creative, physical, social, participatory, cultural and moral). The school is still under construction, but the soft opening is slated for September, 2016. The inaugural students are registered and ready to go, although there is still some availability for other students wishing to join this first semester. DVIS aims to develop students who are not only outstanding academically, but also endowed with a wider and deeper sense of social awareness, responsibility and obligation to community. The abilities of all students are supported according to the theory of multiple intelligences. Da Vinci International School will follow the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) curriculum, but school officials say the school is not just for British kids. They offer global educational skills for all expatriate kids and local Thai kids. The goal of the school is to provide students with a carefully balanced education.

The mission is to prepare tomorrow’s global citizens and leaders with the knowledge, skills and qualifications they need to face, meet and succeed with the challenges of the future. Named after Leonardo da Vinci, the school aims to cover science, engineering, architecture, arts, mathematics, poetry, painting and sculpture in a new and innovative manner. DVIS is committed to the development of an institutional culture that unites promising students, dedicated parents and guardians and professional teachers and educational managers in striving continuously for the highest standards, the best practice and performance and the soundest academic provision in a warm, caring and friendly environment. The curriculum for Nursery, Preschool and Primary classes is reinforced where appropriate with ancillary elements chosen on the basis of their suitability in view of local cultural factors. Students thus receive a blend of global and domestic education which builds on and complements their previous knowledge and their existing cultural identities. Classroom learning will be linked to, and supported by, DVIS’ extensive extracurricular program.

Extracurricular activities will address physical and recreational sectors, as well as educational ones. There are many benefits of joining an international school and obtaining an international education, including use of English as the principal medium of instruction, the ability to impart skills that refine critical thinking, and international school communities tend to be multinational. The main international language is arguably English. That Da Vinci will teach its classes in English, will afford all nationalities a strong background in English. Being a multinational school, students are exposed to a range of cultures from a young age.

This often enhances their confidence and their empathy, and leads to lifelong friendships. DVIS has chosen to follow the CIE curriculum as it has distinguished itself by offering courses suitable for all young people seeking global preparation for university studies, careers and lives. Students from all over the world are welcome to apply to their school, and applications are accepted for review throughout the year. Leonardo da Vinci once famously observed “learning never exhausts the mind”, a sentiment followed by the instructors and staff at DVIS. ‘Emitte lucem et veritatem’- Sending out light and truth.
