Thailand’s Top 50 High Schools

IMG_9093

The following list of Thailand’s Top 50 high schools are based on 2012 successful admission to Thailand’s top universities, national O-net results and other official student academic achievement. The list includes both public and private high schools, but does not include international schools.

Topping the list is not surprisingly Mahidol Wittayanusorn School which is the only school in the country which specializes in developing students who are regarded as ‘exceptionally gifted’, especially in maths and science. There are no school fees to pay, but admittance is the toughest in the country.

Once upon a time, the capital’s Christian/Catholic schools were the crème-de-la-crème of elitist education. However, except for St Gabriel College at #11, all have dipped in prestige and educational academic success over the years. Many of which do not even get into the Top 100 these days, let alone the Top 50.

So, if you are a foreign parent in Thailand or a wanna-be teacher to the country, we hope this list (from the Ministry of Education) will be of much interest.

  1. Good list, I am wondering how it was made. On base of what?

    I am afraid I think that most of the revenue of education is wasted on over-head (meeting trips in expensive hotels for the staff).

  2. My school is at number 5!

    P.S Hi Richard, I recently updated my top ten blogs for 2013 and you’re still on there mate. I think there’s a lot of useful info on your blog that people should see. Hope the link helps drive extra traffic your way.

    Thanks

  3. Wow thanks for sharing this list with us! Only one school from our province, Suratthani :(

  4. I saw the list but could not find La Salle College Bangkok, which I guess is one of the famous high school in Bangkok. Although maybe not the best.

  5. This comment is quite out of place…but how does one go about removing my ancient posts that I made years ago under “guest writers”? Any assistance would be appreciated. Have a great one!
