Welcome to the 2020-21 school year at ISB! We are excited to welcome students back to campus per ISB’s reopening plan!
Three updates about Native Language classes after-school:
- The Native Language Academy will now be called the Panther Native Language Academy, because it is part of after-school Panther Activities.
- Registration and payment for Panther Native Language Academy classes will be done online through the new CHQ system, open August 10-19, 2020.
- The fee for ALL Panther Native Language Academy classes in Semester 1 will be 7,000 THB plus nominal Activities fees, viewable in CHQ.
Panther Native Language Academy classes will still be formed based on students’ schedules, language needs, and age. The Native Language Coordinator will gather this information from parents by email and Google Forms, as in past years.
The Semester 1 fee is calculated based on 500 THB/one-hour weekly class session, held for 14 weeks. For students K and up whose families pay this fee for one session per week, ISB will fund a second class session per week if there is adequate demand. PreK 2 classes meet once per week only.
Depending on when after-school classes in each language begin, some classes may not meet for 14 full weeks in Semester 1. For students in classes that do not meet for 14 full weeks, a portion of their Semester 1 fee will be credited to Semester 2.
If you wish your child(ren) to take Panther Native Language Academy classes in Semester 1, kindly register in CHQ between August 10 and August 19. Also, watch for email from the Native Language Coordinator about your child(ren)’s class schedule.
Most Panther Native Language Academy classes will begin in early September. Classes will not begin earlier than August 24. The start date for each language will be announced by email when the schedule is final.

Here’s to a language-rich school year!
