Welcome to NIVA

It started as NIVA Overseas School (NOS), one of only seven international schools operating in Thailand at the time.

In 1995, we expanded our academic offering by opening NIVA International Kindergarten (NIK) in Soi 16 on Ladprao 101 Road, Bangkok. Seven years later NOS and NIK were combined under the name NIVA International School and moved to our current campus.

After adopting the American curriculum for the first time in 2004, NIVA’s high standard of international education was confirmed with the accreditations from Thailand’s Ministry of Education and United States’ Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in 2010. NIVA was renamed as NIVA American International School in 2018 to reaffirm the belief in the American education system.

NIVA is located between Ladprao 101 and Pradit Manutham Road. The safe environment allows students to explore the campus safely and have many learning experiences inside the campus. Classes are conducted inside and outside of the classroom where students discover a lot of things that excite their curiosity and eagerness to learn.
