Welcome to VERSO
VERSO is a new international school with a compelling vision for the future. It is a place of wonder, evolution, and growth. It’s a school where aspirations and inspirations blend. A place where hearts and minds are shaped and children begin to understand who they are, and what the world around them means.

LET’S RE-IMAGINE WHAT SCHOOL COULD BE LIKE
VERSO invites igniting passion, inspiring creativity.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to re-imagine the future of school. We offer students in Bangkok a unique and unrivalled international school experience designed to thoroughly prepare them for an unpredictable and rapidly changing world.
Partnering with San Francisco’s highly regarded design firm IDEO, we have created a unique and compelling vision for a ‘school of the future’. As researchers, we visited leading schools across the USA, Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok seeking inspiration and insights from those on the cutting-edge of school design and learning innovation. Using IDEO’s approach to human-centered design we listened carefully to students, families, educators, and entrepreneurs in Bangkok. Inspired by these insights and our research, we designed and tested a series of prototypes and models to explore what a school of the future needed to look like. Then using feedback on our ideas, we refined our design and finalized VERSO’s visionary blueprint.
VERSO is the world’s first international school to have partnered with IDEO to develop its conceptual design. VERSO’s unique DNA blends educational research with design to deliver an exciting, innovative and powerful educational experience for students.
A PERSONALIZED JOURNEY
We are passionate advocates for dynamic and deeply personal learning. As progressive educators, we are excited to move beyond the dominant and outdated ‘one-size fits all’ model of traditional schools.
VERSO puts students front and center of their own education. They are on a journey of discovery where their talents and interests shape their school experience and add true value to their learning. It is a school where students grow to understand who they are, as learners and as human beings. VERSO will provide opportunities and support for students to go deeper in their learning, to connect with the world around them and develop the confidence to lead their own journey.
Applied Learning Experiences are key to the educational program at VERSO. We understand that student learning is maximized when it has real-world relevance. When students feel their learning has a genuine purpose, they will go above and beyond our expectations. At VERSO we harness the power of deep interdisciplinary project-based learning to inspire students to dig deeper, go further and reach higher.
