About D-PREP International School Bangna
We believe happiness and success have to happen hand in hand for every single child. We believe in a well-rounded and balanced approach to education where the child is viewed as a capable learner who can lead most of their learning through the guidance and support of coaches (teachers). We take the best current educational practices from around the world to form and constantly improve our approach to education.
D-PREP international school is affiliated with The American School of Bangkok, which opened the first international kindergarten in Thailand as Didyasarin International Kindergarten in 1983 and changed to Didyasarin International School in 1995 as it expanded from a kindergarten to a full K-12 school.
The final change occurred when the school adopted a fully American curriculum under the name The American School of Bangkok in 1997. ASB now has two K-12 campuses in Sukhumvit and Green Valley, Bangna. ASB is proud to have graduated several hundred students who have since attended several top universities around the world, such as Yale University, New York University, UCLA, and Harvard University, to name a few.
