Kasintorn Vittaya School Profile
Kasintorn Vittaya School was found in 1984 by spouses Master Charoenchai Kasintorn and Headmistress Kwonyeon Kasintorn. Both now have over 40 years of experience in education since they had been educators in Thai schools before they founded their first school together. At first, Kasintorn Vittaya School was originally named Anuban Kasintorn in Thai language or Kasintorn Kindergarten as it started with two years kindergarten program. The school building was similar to a house and children were happy and learning well in a warm atmosphere in a good suburban neighborhood.
In short time, the school was well known among parents and nearby communities for offering a very good quality of child care service as well as academic development according to the Ministry of Education, Thailand. In 1989, a swimming pool and a three-floor building were built as there were not enough rooms and the first grade level started. The school’s name was changed to Kasintorn Vittaya School to indicate that the school will extend education program to primary level.
Kasintorn Vittaya School continued to be renowned for good management and services that the number of students raised and there were not enough rooms again. Therefore, a new building was built in 1992 which has 6 floors comprising such standard facilities as a sound laboratory, library, science lab, computer rooms and elevator. A couple of years later, a standard swimming pool was built in adjacent to the first swimming pool for young children.
In 2004, the school commemorated its 20 year anniversary and continued on improving its quality, restored facilities and installed new equipments. Besides, the school license has transferred to Miss Alisa Kasintorn a year before while the school founder has become the school board chair. In 2008, the headmistress has became the director as the Ministry of Education change the way how to call this position.
Kasintorn Vittaya School is now still well known for its emphasis on academics; encouraging students to develop to their full potentials. Parents have enrolled their child because of words of mouth that our graduates have good qualities as teachers and staff are qualified and have long experiences. Foreign teachers are native speakers of English and/or near native English speakers, have at lest a Bachelor’s degree, a TEFL certificate and a teaching experience. When foreign teachers teach, a Thai teacher will support teaching and learning. Class size is small, so each student is well cared for.
