  • Description

    Description

    The school is in Samoeng, a village located in a remote mountain area of the north of Thailand. It's one hour drive from Chiang mai city. In Samoeng you'll find restaurants, supermarkets, a bank, a farmacy, a post office, etc.

    Our students, a little more than 100, are 3 to 15 years old.
    Although we are a goverment school, we teach on a way inspired by Montessory system. Most of the teaching is provided to small groups where students take an active part in the teaching process. We care about the happiness of our kids.

    Half of our student come from Burmese families. They are stateless and their future will be difficult, they need your help to get a good star in their life.
