Tara Pattana – The International school of Pattaya


When choosing where to live, there are many factors that you will take into consideration. If you have school-age children, then choosing a location that has access to your preferred school will likely be high on your list.

International Schools in Thailand have a reputation for providing the highest standard of education to both Thai and foreign students. Bangkok is well known for having a vast array of schools to choose from. What you might not know is that there are also several outstanding schools in Pattaya and the Eastern Seaboard.

Gecko Properties can help you find the best possible property that matches your requirements, including access to your preferred school(s). Most if not all of these schools provide a home to school transport within their catchment area making getting to school the least of your worries.

Tara Pattana International School is located in East Pattaya. They are fully accredited by the Education Development Trust with the International Schools Quality Mark (ISQM). They offer places from pre school through secondary. Naturally they offer home to school transport which is a common feature of most of these schools.

One of the most well-known and respected schools in the area is St. Andrews Green Valley. They are part of a group of St. Andrews Schools in Thailand that includes Sathorn, Sukhumvit and Dusit located in Bangkok. They are also part of the Cognita group, which is a global school network with over 70 schools in eight countries.

Like many international schools, they offer a home to school transport from most local places, including Pattaya and Siracha.

Another option is Regents International School Pattaya. They cater to both Thai and foreign students. They are accredited with several international and regional bodies. Like St Andrews, they also offer a home to school transport. They also provide boarding options, including occasional boarding, when you have a business or other commitments that require you to be away from home.

Garden International School or GIS is located in Rayong and a little bit further out of central Pattaya. They still offer a home to school transport, but if you need or wish to live in Rayong, then this might be an excellent option for you.




Rugby School Thailand is located on the Eastern side of Pattaya. They take children from 2 years old through to 18. They have a balance of students with 50% Thai and 50% international. Like virtually every international school, they provide a quality home to school transport.

The International School of Chonburi (Pattaya) is located about 10km from Pattaya Klang. If you choose to live in central or north Pattaya, this might be the closest school. They only cater to students through year 6, but offer a home to school transport.

This is not an exhaustive list of the International Schools available to Pattaya and Eastern Seaboard residents. As you can see, you can choose from many options.
