Crescent International School was established in 2008 with the aim to produce a multi-culturally diverse community of students honed with talents and skills to create a happy learning environment that gave them all the freedom to think.
The initial project of the school was started under the CEF Crescent Educational Foundation, initiated in 2008 through the collaborative efforts of a group of generous people. This group included the former Ambassador of Qatar to Thailand, H.E Abadalla Al Hamar, the honourable H.E Wan Mohammad Noor Matha, businessmen like Mr. Fofana Djime and Mr. Aroon Denyingyoch, and group of educators who pooled their resources together to serve the Thai community, especially the less privileged.
The school started its operation on the first quarter of the academic year of 2008 with 150 students of different nationalities and 18 dedicated and committed educators housed in a 2,000 square meter lot located in the heart of Bangkok. Now standing grandiosely in its grounds, the school continues to grow in both student population and academic excellence. One of the lasting goals of the institution is to better serve the needs of our young population, irrespective of race, creed and religious orientations and beliefs.
CIS is fully licensed as an International School with the Thai Ministry of Education, as well as a member of the International School Association of Thailand (ISAT).

The school is committed to employing and retaining the best professional administrators and teachers available. CIS makes every effort to assure that faculty members hired to teach have degrees, are certified and experienced in their fields, and have excellent recommendations. In addition, the school seeks, where possible, to hire teachers with advanced degrees in their areas of expertise, and successful teaching experiences both in their home countries and abroad. We are proud of the diversity of our teachers, currently representing over a dozen nationalities. Current enrollment is over 400 students with an average class size of 18 students.
