Raffles American School (RAS) is aiming to shift perspectives about education in Asia. Our teachers believe that inquiry/project/play-based instruction are important elements of developing autonomous learning strategies and a lifelong love of creative discovery. We will demonstrate to the local community that a school adopting this ethos can follow Common Core Standards and meet WASC accreditation standards.
After opening just one year ago, RAS has experienced remarkable success, becoming one of the fastest growing schools in Thailand. Parents, worried that their children no longer enjoy attending school, have come to us seeking an alternative to monotonous worksheets and drills. Because of a sudden increase in enrollment, RAS requires more ESL teachers and more Homeroom teachers in the Preschool and Kindergarten.
If you would like to become part of a progressive change in Asia’s education ideology, RAS is looking for qualified teachers. Because we have such rigorous standards for monitoring the individual learning path of each student, our teachers are rewarded with a generous number of number of holidays (less than 195 days of work per year) and light teaching loads.
Our campus is located in the suburbs of Bangkok, only 10 minutes from the public transportation skytrain, but away from downtown traffic and high rent prices. Our teachers usually spend less than 10,000 THB per month on rent for an apartment community with a swimming pool, gym, and lush gardens.
With many acres of land still to develop, RAS plans to grow into a school that is competitive and fully equipped with modern facilities. Currently, we have more than 200 students, Preschool to Grade 8, but in the coming years, we will issue US accredited high school diplomas and Advanced Placement courses. Because RAS is part of a large, global education group (Raffles Education Group, Co. Ltd.), we have the support necessary to ensure success.
Our salary for teachers depends on qualifications. All positions are requested to start ASAP. To apply, please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Join our Raffles team and help us grow into one of Thailand's best international schools.
