About the school

Located twenty kilometers from Chiang Mai, the campus of the Triadhos Three-Generation Community for Learning was conceived and designed by ML Tridhosyuth Devakul, internationally-recognized environmentalist, architect, interior designer and Thai senator. Originating over thirteen years ago as a small bi-lingual school, Prem and the Triadhos Community now offers a wide range of learning opportunities including the IB International School.

The centre of the 100 acre campus is the spacious library and extensive computer centre for student research. An auditorium and an additional amphitheatre each seat 600 and are used for theatre and music performances. Sports facilities provide a full gymnasium, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, table tennis, an exercise room, two short-game golf driving ranges, football field and athletic fields. Three clusters of buildings house the Early Years classroom, Junior School and Sinior School. Each offers ample classrooms, comprehensive science labs and administrative and teacher preparation space. The open-air cafeteria offers nutritious meals for day and boarding students.

The school meets international standards and practices prescribed by the International Baccalaureate (IB), the Council of International Schools (CIS), the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), and the Thai Government Ministry of Education (MoE). The school is a member of the International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT), East Asian Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS) and of the Boarding Schools Association (BSA).

At Prem we strive to create a genuine “home from home.” Professional boarding staff members are committed to maintaining an environment where every student feels safe, secure, healthy, are-for and listened-to. Home for all students are shared two- or three-bedroom apartments with ensuite bathrooms. Security guards patrol the apartment clusters and throughout the campus to ensure all students’ safety. Boarding students live and learn from each other by bringing together different cultures, religions and ethnicity. Our boarding has its own curriculum programmes offering diverse activities.
