I believe that the school must represent present life, life as real and vital to the child as that which he carries on in the home, in the neighborhood, or on the playground.
– John Dewey (My Pedagogic Creed) –
Satit Kaset IP adopts the “learning by doing” education philosophy inspired by a renowned American philosopher, John Dewey. He believed that education should be relevant to students’ real-lives and enable them to apply their skills to solve problems in their communities. Based on this philosophy, the IP program supplements the curriculum with competency-based and hands-on learning
Our students are taught the essential 21st-century learning skills of critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication in the classrooms. They are encouraged to show their curiosity, ask good questions, and collaborate effectively.
Through projects, students become skilled in the use of language and digital media technology, which leads them to grow into confident leaders and global citizens.
Our ultimate goal is to become a
“thinking school and learning community.”
We celebrate diversity and creativity.
We respect and appreciate different ideas.
We are open-minded and curious about other cultures.
We find our voices in society.
Everyone can realize their dreams.
Satit Kaset IP is a learning community where students and teachers create knowledge together. They share ideas and values, develop skills, and cultivate a positive attitude towards learning.
Alongside our curriculum, our projects and courses aim to provide opportunities for students to discover their passions and develop leadership skills. Our students also participate in many school activities organized by the Kasetsart University Laboratory School, Center for Educational Research and Development to foster collaboration and relationships.
They include the annual Sports Day, school fair, grade-level field trips, and camps. They help nurture students’ sense of belonging and a healthy school learning environment where unity and camaraderie are placed at the forefront of the activities’ goals.

from a different viewpoint.
