The history

After World War II, the missionaries returned to serve with the Church of Christ in Thailand (CCT) and set up a school in Chiang Mai for their youngsters. Eight pupils started classes on 1 June 1954. Buildings for the Chiang Mai Toddler’s Center began in 1958 on the existing location. The number of students had increased as more expatriate spouses for their children had come to Chiang Mai to learn English.

Authorities of the Thai Foreign Office and the CCT concluded in 1984 that the official creation in Chiang Mai of an international school was a step forward to the citizenship rights of the school. In September 1985, classes resumed for 8th-grade kindergarten there under the new name “International Chiang Mai School” (CMIS). From 1992 to 1995, academic credentials graduated gradually. CMIS now is a vibrant Independent School with over 500 students, yet it is small enough to keep your campus environment pleasant and casual. 

Courageous students: 

  • Include an ethic of labour that values education and university integrity
  • Continue to develop as adaptable, autonomous students
  • Show thought that is open, innovative, and risky
  • To successfully promote learning and employment, use knowledge and technology

Furthermore, it remains true to the belief systems of its founders, serving Christian missionaries families and preserving the heritage and the values of Christianity at the very heart of the school and welcoming young people from the growing world community of Chiang Mai of any religion, culture, or political affiliation.
