The International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT) is perhaps more ready than any other Thai-based private or public endeavor for the inauguration of the Asean Economic Community at the end of this year. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the association is fully geared up to help cement Thailand's reputation as a hub of international education in Southeast Asia.

Association president Usa Somboon says the emphasis is now stronger than ever on its mission to provide the best-quality education possible while at the same time raising the bar for international schools in Thailand. The association is committed to producing "global citizens", she says, by giving students the skills they'll need in a rapidly changing world.

"The association represents 113 of the 147 international schools in Thailand and, together with other government and private organizations, designs the curriculum," Usa says.

"The growth of international schools in Thailand has helped boost the national economy, with up to Bt20 billion generated annually. Our standards are ranked among the highest in Asia, and three to five new schools open each year, with more and more coming in the future to cope with demand.
