A JOURNEY TO EXCELLENCE
WELCOME TO HIGH SCHOOL
As a Christian school, one of our goals is for our students to become global citizens who impact their world by applying biblical truth. We offer an American-style, college preparatory curriculum that integrates academic rigor with biblical truth and real-world application.
One of the unique qualities of our high school is the range of opportunities students have, in and out of class. We offer nine AP classes, alongside unique elective courses. Because our staff come to us as committed Christian teachers called to serve Grace students and their families, they model an integrated faith daily. Because their faith extends outside the classroom, they lead the students to take their learning to Thai schools, orphanages, and refugee camps through programs like Sports Leadership and art ministry.
We give our students a myriad of opportunities, with the aim of equipping them to choose and pursue their areas of interest. Our students continually step up and excel in scholarship, leadership, and servanthood. It is a blessing to be a part of this body of believers, striving to use our Hearts, Heads, and Hands together for the glory of God.
GIS offers more than just academics. We have a variety of programs for students to be involved in based on their interests. These include sports leadership, technology & design, and advisory.
We develop leaders who impact the world for Christ. Sports Leadership allows students to develop foundational leadership skills by using them to serve younger students and lead outreaches to the local Thai community. Our students learn what it truly means to put their faith into action.
TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN
In today’s technologically advanced world, it is essential that students are equipped with the necessary skills and tools to design. GIS offers several technology and design focused classes and clubs to allow all students to gain the skills and experience to excel in today’s digital age.
The purpose of advisory is for intentional, personal, whole-student care through a connection with a GIS staff member who will walk alongside and help students flourish within the context of academics, spirituality, emotional, and social topics in group meetings.
A Biblically Integrated, American-Style, College Preparatory Curriculum.
At Grace International School, we offer an American-style, college preparatory curriculum that covers a broad base of topics while integrating biblical truths into the classroom. GIS students will be equipped with the tools and knowledge to not just excel in prestigious universities and their career, but also to impact the world for Christ.
The high school level offers a variety of courses in language arts, sciences, mathematics, social studies, Bible, foreign languages, visual and performing arts, technology and design, and P.E. GIS also offers AP (Advanced Placement) courses, allowing students to complete college-level work in high school and earn college credit. All students are expected to meet the minimum graduation requirements, but are able to customize their studies based on their academic career goals. See the High School Academic Program Handbook for more information.
Academic Standards and Review Cycle
Every 7 years our resources are refreshed with all teachers being involved in the choosing of the resources. GIS has adopted the following standards:

ADVANCED PLACEMENT COURSES
At GIS we offer a wide variety of Advanced Placement, or AP, courses to high school students. This allows our students the opportunity to take college-level courses while attending Grace. Students are evaluated by taking exams based on a five-point scale at the end of each course and those results are reported to colleges and universities.
Many colleges and universities in the US grant college credits or advanced placement based on the AP exam scores. Universities in countries outside the US use AP courses and exams grades as criteria for admissions. For more information including class AP course descriptions please see the High School Academic Program Handbook.
GIS AP COURSES
*In any given year, some AP courses may not be offered due to teacher availability or low student enrollment.
High school students can pursue an AP Capstone Diploma. This is a diploma program from the College Board. It’s based on two year-long AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. Rather than teaching subject-specific content, these courses develop students’ skills in research, analysis, evidence-based arguments, collaboration, writing, and presenting. Students who complete the two-year program and four additional AP courses can earn the AP Capstone Diploma, which is valued by colleges across the United States and around the world.
High school assessments take the form of the PSAT 10, SAT, and AP test scores. Below is our average test scores when compared to the national average. You may also take a look at our school profile for more information.
