School Systems Around the World: Thailand

Most schools run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Every school has a uniform system, and the colors of the uniform indicate whether the school is private or public. After entering high school, the student either goes into the math/science field or the language/arts field. Unlike in the US, high school is only 3 years long. The schools are also run more strictly than here at RHS. The average student studies harder and experiences more stress than the typical student here; however, there are always exceptions. A great emphasis is placed on getting into select colleges, especially those run by the government. Government colleges are well known, prestigious, and affordable. Private universities try to compete with government universities in terms of attracting students, but they are much more expensive, and less recognized.
