Welcome from the President

“Knowledge is Power”

Francis Bacon

Gainesville International School Chiangrai is the first and only high school in Thailand that applies the U.S. curriculum of a military academy Riverside Military Academy. Riverside Military Academy at Gainesville of Georgia of the U.S.A. has been established and has produced an enormous number of principled leaders and young qualified personnel for the U.S. Military Forces for more than 110 years.

With the adoption of the curriculum of the Riverside Military Academy, we, at Gainesville International School (GIS), offer traditional but ThaiAmerican style education where personal values, honor, and love of country still matter. GIS is not owned or operated by any particular religious domination but supports the spiritual and educational goals of all families. In that regard, the Pledge of Allegiance, the blessing at mealtime, the cultural respect, and appreciation for those of different races, gender, and religion are not only expected but mandatory. GIS is essentially a co-ed school for both genders.

All students are trained to be polite, respect authority, and confident in any social environment. The mission of GIS is to educate and train our students to become proud leaders in all walks of life.

Parents are welcome to bring along your children to visit, look, and feel. GIS colleagues will be delighted to receive you and answer questions, and we look forward to your children’s learning and experience at GIS in the forthcoming future.
