About Srithammarat Suksa, EPAMC: The Srithammarat Suksa School is a Christian school in Nakon Si Thammarat, Thailand. Nakon Si Thammarat is both the name of the city and the name of the province it resides in (similar to New York, NY). The school was the first private school in Nakhon Si Thammarat and was built in 1901 by a group of American Presbyterian missionaries. Their leader at that time was Mr. Ekkles. In the early days, the school was called “The American College for Boys.” It was a small school and only boys were able to attend classes. In 1941, the old name of the school was changed from “The American School for Boys” to Sithammaratwittaya School in order to suit the local and social ethics of the time. However many people referred to the school as “American Mission College” , thus the name “AMC” has been, and still is used when referring to the school. Over the course of the last 100+ years, the school has grown into a co-educational institution of more than 5000 students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. The Main Thai school website is http://www.sss.ac.th
The Srithammarat Suksa School English Programme was started in 2000 and is one of the largest English Programs in southern Thailand with students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. More than 800 students study most of their subjects in English under a faculty of 40+ native English speaking teachers from a wide variety of Western countries.
The English Programme is separated into 3 different parts:
Anuban (Kindergarten-including Nursery in Thai) English Programme: AEP Pratom (Primary in Thai) English Programme: PEP Mathayom (Secondary in Thai) English Programme: MEP
The AEP and PEP operate classes of no more than 30 students, with several sections for each grade. The MEP classes are capped at 30 students with several sections for each grade. All classes are taught in teams, with a Thai homeroom teacher or teachers’ assistant working with the Native English speaking Teacher. There is also the new EIP (English Immersion Program) where students from the regular program are taught English by native English speaking teachers.
The English Programme prides its self on providing a top notch, international and universal education. The EP has resources from around the world, over 1,000 English books in the EP library alone plus a whole teacher resource room full of books from around the globe. The EP utilizes curriculum and standards from North America, Singapore, Australia, England and Thailand.
The EP is always looking for responsible, motivated teachers to join our Staff. Srithammarat Suksa is a well-established and well-respected school with more than 10 years of experience training and helping teachers improve while providing quality education. The EP is continually growing and improving in size, quality and reputation. We currently have a foreign staff of more than 40 from the US, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. The English Progrmme purchased and built a NEW English Programme campus in 2011. The new facility is the school’s 3rd campus (out of 4) and is absolutely beautiful. Srithammarat is blessed by God, community, faculty and Thailand to have such a wonderful school.
Our city, Nakon Si Thammarat, is an ancient trading capital with many modern/western conveniences: internet, satellite TV, pizza, fast food, malls, super stores… you name it. Renting a house can be done for about 10-15% of monthly salary, leaving plenty to experience local culture in our medium-sized, NON-touristic Thai city. Beaches, mountains, caves and waterfalls are within a short drive, and the famous tourist meccas of Ko Samui, Ko Pa Ngan, Krabi and Phuket are a short drive away. However the town still has the “small town vibe” and is very much “real Thailand”. For more information on Nakon Si Thammarat, please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nakhon_Si_Thammarat

We love Srithammarat, or EP AMC! My daughter just graduated 6th grade and was excepted into the best school in San Francisco, without any trouble. So you can see the Kindgergarten and Primary levels are on pare with US education systems.
As for working here, things couldn’t be better. Super fun, super active. The perfect mix of doing something great, feeling like a professional and have a blast at the same time. The area of NST is awesome, so much to do and explore. Even after all these years, I still find new waterfalls, and beaches (just last week). Can’t beat it! Plus 10% raises each year!!!
